Somebody asked: “What can we do in light of this tragic massacre in Colorado?  If we could silence all the talking heads who are now muddying facts or lying again and voicing idiotic “theories” of what happened and what should be done, and get them to allow at least a day or two to pass in respect and mourning, that would the most thoughtful and humane thing that can be done and because it is impossible that the once mainstream media could report anything responsibly.

“We demand the media report responsibly,” Martin said, adding, “It is  irresponsible for any media outlet to suggest anyone was responsible for this  tragedy other than those involved.”

Brian Ross of ABC News on Friday wrongly suggested  that the shooting suspect – identified by authorities as 24-year-old James  Holmes — could be a tea party activist.

Ross apparently was referencing this page on the website of the  Colorado Tea Party Patriots.
