Guess we can really trust the so called "News Reports" from the guys at comedy central.

"Sherwood's remarks, made on the network's daily editorial conference call, came the morning after Ross's report was picked up by late night comedians John Stewart and Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central, both of whom used Ross's erroneous suggestion of a Tea Party link to the Colorado theater shooting as fodder for their Monday night routines."

If they really want to stop inaccurate reporting they should close down.

I'm surprised the local libs haven't chimed in to defend their just and virtuous heroes John Stewart and Stephen Colbert. After all these two astute journalist would NEVER stoop so low as to jump on a bandwagon without verifying their sources.

Usually Politico is a reliable source. Maybe this one is bassakward because it is from a blog. Whatever the reason they have or you boys have got the story all wrong.
Stewart was finding fault with the way Ross broke in to the reporting to say he'd discovered a man with the same name as the suspected shooter, also living in Aurora who belonged to the local tea party. Stewart, as you can see from this clip, pointed out Ross's mistake and found fault with his breaking in to the regular report. He was not jumping on the bandwagon. He was pointing out how stupid it was.

Ross almost wet himself in excitement when he found that name. He thought HE was going to be the one to break something horrible about the Tea Party. The humiliation and embarrassment he and the rest of the Progressives feel after hanging the OWS albatross around their own necks makes them even more desperate.

Maybe the best way is to quit reporting as facts information obtained from blogs...

Now THERE's an idea! At least the blog info should be cross checked. Good point.

Actually Stewart and Colbert didn't need defending in this case. A more careful and objective reading of the Politico blog states:
ABC News president Ben Sherwood told staff today that last Friday's incorrect report by Brian Ross detracts from the network's otherwise excellent coverage of the Colarado theater shooting, network sources tell POLITICO.

Sherwood's remarks, made on the network's daily editorial conference call, came the morning after Ross's report was picked up by late night comedians John Stewart and Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central, both of whom used Ross's erroneous suggestion of a Tea Party link to the Colorado theater shooting as fodder for their Monday night routines.

It was assumed in the original posting of this thread that they were piling on Brian Ross's exciting "news" that the shooter was a tea party member when they were actually faulting him for his lazy "journalism". We need to be cooler heads when it comes to wishful thinking about what something means. Reading: "used Ross's erroneous suggestion...as fodder for their Monday night routines." Meant the opposite of what was suggested by the thread.
