During initial media coverage surrounding the theater massacre, ABC News' Brian Ross reported "there is a Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colo., page on the Colorado Tea Party site."
His suggestion on "Good Morning America" that the Colorado massacre suspect -- whose name is James Holmes -- may be linked to the Tea Party turned out to be an error.
Ross said he wasn't sure if it was the same man. The Jim Holmes he was referring to turned out to be a 50-something Colorado resident who had nothing to do with the shooting rampage.
Now, the on-the-fly reporting is bringing Ross some criticism.
CBN News spoke with Brent Bozell, with the Media Research Center about the reporting on the Colorado shooting. He called Ross' comment a "brazen attempt to smear the Tea Party."
