Good for you, Glenda. Well said. Rob
Inappropriate James, very much so.
unfortunately, she died.
Others reportedly shot as well
in total no word on any of them.
One of the dead is a District Judge
Not the first time!
After the first time, seems she'd have arranged better security for such public events.
The shooting occurred at a Safeway supermarket in northwest Tucson as Ms. Giffords hosted an event, called "Congress on Your Corner, to allow members of the 8th Congressional District to meet her individually. She has held several events since first taking office in January 2007. At one such event in 2009, a protester was removed by police when his pistol fell on the supermarket floor.
Last March, her Tucson office was vandalized a few hours after the House vote overhauling the nation's health care system, the authorities said. Earlier events in Tucson, Oro Valley, Green Valley, Sierra Vista, and Douglas had attracted between 75 and 150 people, according to a statement announcing the event. This was her first event since her re-election to a third term in November.
Ms. Giffords, 40, was interviewed on Fox news on Friday to talk about a bill to cut to congressional salaries by 5 percent.
She married Cmdr. Mark E. Kelly, 46, a NASA astronaut and Navy pilot from New Jersey, in December 2007 at a wedding attended by Robert B. Reich, the former Labor secretary.
where are you getting
the info that she died? We have the Tucson news on and nothing has been said about her death. This is a sad day when people think shooting solves anything
that was the news out there
first on CNN is where I heard it. Now that's disappearing and being replaced by her being out of surgery but still critical. One of the things that bothers me about the internet and news sites is how they "update" stories, having them change and not retaining what was there before. However, sometimes the forums under a news page shows the progression from what was reported first and then later.
You keep asking me for links. Perhaps those rules don't
apply to you, especially since you're wrong.
Sometimes timing is everything ....
It's a bit hard to link to an article that USED to be on the web.
NPR was not unique in making an erroneous report, but they gracious enough to apologize for their error:
Editor's Note: On NPR's Giffords Coverage : NPR
In the course of reporting on the tragic events in Tucson on Saturday, NPR broadcast erroneous information in our 2:01 p.m. Eastern newscast, saying that Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona had been shot and killed. That information briefly appeared on NPR.org and was contained in an e-mail news alert sent to subscribers of that service. This was a serious and grave error. Thankfully, Rep. Giffords is alive today, though sadly other victims of the shootings are not. Corrections and properly updated reports were issued within minutes.
On behalf of NPR News, I apologize for this mistake to the family of Rep. Giffords, to the families of everyone affected by the shootings, to our listeners and to our readers.
The information we reported came from two different governmental sources, including a source in the Pima County Sheriff's Department. Nonetheless, in a situation so chaotic and changing so swiftly, we should have been more cautious. There were, obviously, conflicting reports from authorities and other sources. The error we made was unintentional, an error of judgment in a fast-breaking situation. It was corrected immediately. But we deeply regret the error.
It would be nice if our forum members showed similar civility.
there you will find all the links you need.
Both NPR and CNN reported such
I wasn't going on Google
we have just had the TV tuned to Tucson News.
NPR appeared to be the first national news outlet to report, falsely,
that Ms. Giffords had died. CNN, CBS, Fox News, and other entities
also said that her death had been "confirmed."
Authorities later said that Ms. Giffords had been seriously injured,
but had not died. Some of the initial incorrect information came from
the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to Fox.
The New York Times also briefly reported that Ms. Giffords had died,
citing a spokesman and other news reports. Doc Searls, a prominent
blogger, deemed it "news at the speed of death."
My son found
another error in reports, the shooter was never in the military.
I was wondering
What caused them to first report he was? Knee jerk liberalism?
RE: What caused them to first report he was?
they make a knee jerk something.
He DID apply to join the military, so they figured they were accepting everyone that applied?
and about your Knee jerk liberalism?statement.
That's the kind of stuff this guy is talking about
"The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous" Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said. "Arizona I think has become sort of the capital. We have become the Mecca for prejudice and bigotry."
First, you must realize Sheriff Dupnik is a....
...politically motivated Democrat mole. He's just as wrong now in his assessment as when considering to not enforce new Arizona law concerning illegal aliens in Arizona. He finally capitulated on that, rather than become a criminal himself.
Yeah, you're right
all political parties in the US are getting along just great, and there is no animosity or ill will.
Things couldn't be any better.
RE: politically motivated Democrat mole
"He DID apply to join the military, so they figured they were accepting everyone that applied?"
They probably all think they would be on American Idol if they just applied too.
15 minutes of glory for another weirdo?
that the civilians that attacked him and brought him down didn't hurt him! He was in police custody very quickly.
