    You know, that's the first thing that came to mind. Another deliberate misrepresentation by media trying to further sensationalize a tragedy. Outrageous.

    You can "think" anything you wish, of course, but there is no evidence in the link you posted to support that speculation.

    Yep, they just fall back on a retraction and rely on past credibility, and we constantly forgive them. I'd rather get the information from someone who gets it right the first time.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    ABC News also mischaracterized Holmes' mother's statement and according to his mother, she had no knowledge of the shooting that had taken place in Colorado when she got the call from ABC News and when she said "you have the right person" to a reporter, she was referring to herself not her son, which means that his parents did not know anything about Holmes' sudden change or mental problem.

    I'm afraid almost everything that's coming out about this perp is bogus and not to be trusted. I'm completely with that he's a no good horrible bad murdering no good low down evil SOB, but I don't think we're going to get anything out of the news media about him that's accurate for months, IF then. It's all hype and speculation at this point.

    MAYBE at some point, years from now, some thoughtful writer will publish a well researched book about what happened. That's the best hope for learning the truth of this matter. I can almost guarantee that it won't have any resemblance to the story we are getting now.

    Even then, years from now, that writer's book will be misinterpreted by someone trying to blame whatever the rallying cry is at the time. I can see it now: 'REDDISH/ORANGE HAIR DYE LINKED TO MURDEROUS RAMPAGE, MCDONALDS QUICK TO CHANGE MASCOT"
