<p>The hosts of Good Morning America on Tuesday pointed a speculative finger in the wake of the bombing in Boston. An ABC graphic wondered, "could this be homegrown terror?" In a segment full of guesses, reporter Pierre Thomas featured leftist Mark Potok, the man who labeled the Family Research Council a "hate group." Regarding the date that the explosion occurred on, Potok linked, "The real Patriots Day is April 19th. That is the date that counts for people on the extreme right in the United States." Other than Potok, no other expert voices were featured in the segment. News anchor Josh Elliott backed up Potok's assertions, theorizing, " One big clue could be Monday's date, April 15th. The anniversaries of some of the most harrowing incidents in domestic terror are coming this week." Thomas then went on to highlight David Koresh and the Oklahoma City bombing. His justification? They also happened in April.&nbsp;</p><p>See video cross-posted at <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2013/04/16/abc-speculates-w…;
