ABC News President Ben Sherwood said reporter Brian Ross' speculation that James Holmes, the suspect in the mass shooting in Aurora, Colo., could be linked to the tea party "did not live up to the standards and practices of ABC News. " "We put something on the air that we did not know to be true and the part that we needed to be true was not germane to the story we were covering," Sherwood told reporters at the semiannual Television Critics Assn. press tour in Beverly Hills. "This was an unfortunate mistake," he said, adding that the network was taking steps to make sure it does not happen again, although he declined to say specifically what those steps were.

In the early '80s, when British rock artists were toying with the sci-fi trippiness of Jamaican dub--a reggae genre marked by heavy reverb--Adrian Sherwood was blazing trails for everyone else to follow. A studio wizard with an uncanny feel for the elastic rhythms and spatial expansiveness of Jamaican dance music, the Englishman produced records at a superhuman clip with countless acts during the Thatcher years, before slowing his pace to a mere trot in the '90s.

One day after his scorching 10-under-par 62, Woods had to settle for par 72 in the face of gusty winds at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks.

Woods, who already has won the event a record five times, was 11 under par (205) and held a two-shot lead over Zach Johnson, who also shot 72. Bubba Watson shot a three-under 69 to climb into contention at seven under, while Matt Kuchar struggled to a four-over 76 and was fourth at four under.
