On Twitter, six of James’ Holmes victims have been identified. Yet so far only four of these victims — Jessica Ghawi, Alex Sullivan, Matt McQuinn, and Micayla Medek — have been named by MSM outlets.

Our deepest condolences to the families of all those who were killed.

Update:

@TwitchyTeam MSM only has 4 names because thet vet all their info, unlike inter-webs. Now back to you, @BrianRoss #MSMfail
