Jon Stewart Defends The Tea Party (Sort Of ...)

We here at Black Hat Central know you've got the feevah, and there's only one cure: “More Jon Stewart!”

They say there are three prerequisites to being called a journalist; you've covered a fire, you've covered a local election, and you've written an obituary. At least that's what they used to say. But as the trial of Jim Holmes, the freakin' obvious suspect in the Colorado shooting, began this week, ABC's Brian Ross found out that there's a Jim Holmes who belongs to the Colorado Tea Party, and just naturally put two and two together.

It didn't matter that he came up with five.

That's the good news, people. The bad news is that, of what used to be called "The Big Three," ABC is the least biased among them. This bodes ill for yet another year of election coverage, don't you think?

Or don't you?
