You do realize that the media is grabbing at whatever they can to report because people are so damned hell bent on getting all the information right away? The only people that know what's really going on are the police and investigators. They don't have any duty to fill in anyone outside of the investigation regarding the details unless they choose to.
I remember when the media used to actually get the facts BEFORE they ran with the story, but not anymore.

You know I've been thinking lately about how suspicious this whole thing is. I mean after the shooting he just goes out to his car, takes off his guns and his body armor and waits for the police? Doesn't flee? Doesn't commit suicide? That doesn't make a lot of sense.
And then there's the profile he had on "Adult Friend Finder" where he was allegedly asking women if they would visit him in prison? The guy didn't have Twitter or FB or Tumblr but he had an AFF account? And he was hinting at going to prison?
Then look at him at his first court appearance. He looks like he was drugged or even hypnotised/mind controlled.
It all seems extremely fishy to me. Something just doesn't seem right.
Public records indicate that Holmes lived with two roommates, also from California, in the Aurora, Colo., building where police have found explosives, at 1690 Paris St., Apt. 10.

1. There used to be something called "journalistic integrity". Whether a news outlet is "legally" bound to cite corrections or not, it is journalistic duty to print retractions.... be it a spelling error or misreporting. Some of you will remember going to the library and finding all sourced information on microfilm!! All that recorded news is like a snapshot in time. If it is now acceptable to go back and edit whatever article for whatever reason at whatever time, then what can we rely on? It completely subverts historical reporting and records.
2. The internet age and fast moving news is no excuse for bad reporting. It is the outlet's responsibility to first, make sure that their information is solid before printing or broadcasting.... Well, we've seen that go down the toilet in the past few years. Second, it is incomprehensible that anyone would allow or defend a news organization to alter already printed articles at their whim.
Do you see what happens then? Where that slippery slope leads? Nearly all of what media has printed/broadcasted, at least about this particular case, is speculation masquerading as fact. And it's darn effective, because I see tons of people parroting what they are hearing and passing it on as fact like some horrifying game of operator. The line between fantasy and reality is already dissolving. Randomly editing news without any sort of record is the straw that will break the camel's back.
This is bad. Very bad. And it makes me feel a little sick, because I know there are the vocal few perceptive enough to pick up on this, but those voices will be drowned out by the masses gossiping about dude's orange hair, how he's the joker, and various other inane or defaming topics. Good lord.
ETA: I honestly cannot believe people are actually defending the news outlets on this one. And this is precisely why our future looks dim.

As I said to you on the other thread:
There's no evidence that he had room mates - that I've seen - certainly none in the OP
There is evidence that some media outlet claimed there was evidence, in the public record - we don't have that evidence

I think the questions that this witness needs to answer are:
1.) After the guy went to the exit and took the call, did he come back to his chair and sit back down?
2.) Did he have red hair?edit on 25-7-2012 by kreese because: (no reason given)
I find it interesting that he says " the movie shut off, it was completely dark, and then he walked in "edit on 25-7-2012 by kreese because: (no reason given)

Not that I'm actually challenging your find, but I have a bit of a problem with such claims.
Now we have military or astronauts who go out about UFOs or aliens. We have politicians who go out on some scandals. We have all sort of people who go out on wo many things.
And not one journalist would let it be known that someone is pressing them to publish doctored news?
