Sadly, instead of imparting truthful information about the Colorado shooting, our TV and newspaper media has gone into full liberal attack mode. Right after the name of the accused shooter, James Holmes, was made public the blame game started. On ABC’s hugely popular Good Morning America program, reporter Brian Ross, told George Stephanopoulos that a James Holmes was a member of the Tea Party.

Now why in the World would a supposedly un-biased TV reporter be going through the membership of the Tea Party for a massacre suspect? This left the millions of Good Morning America viewers with an impression of Tea Party blame.

Then we see on PBS, which is an American taxpayer supported TV channel, their most famous TV personality, Bill Moyers, blindly blaming the NRA for helping to bring about the Colorado shootings. American taxpayers of all political beliefs support this public, supposedly unbiased network. Now anyone that has listened to the truly left-wing liberal NPR (National Public Radio) would come to expect these liberal rants from it’s commentators, but not from PBS.

If old-time journalists of the caliber of a Brian Ross and a Bill Moyers are any indication of the state of TV newscasting then heaven help us. Maybe we should just start putting up newstands and start selling the Communist Chinese “People’s Daily” newspaper.
