ABC News reported Wednesday that a group of Romney donors gathered on a yacht flying the Cayman flag.
One problem: The flag is not the flag of the Cayman Islands. It is the flag of Bermuda.
Among the three reporters bylined on the story is Brian Ross, who suggested on live television that the James Holmes who murdered a dozen moviegoers in July could be a Tea Party member named Jim Holmes. Ross later apologized.
ABC News has not yet responded to a comment captured on a live feed from the Republican convention broadcast by Yahoo and ABC, in which Yahoo Washington bureau chief David Chalian can be heard saying Republicans are “happy to have a party with black people drowning.”
