Why wasn't this national news? I didn't see any reports about this on my local news channels. There must be more important stuff in the news, like drama in the Kardashian household.

It crawled on Fox the instant it happened, what do you mean?

It wasn't in the lamestream press because the kid used a shotgun - the VP's weapon of choice - rather than an AR. And an already illegal sawed-off shotgun at that. Lack of AR makes it unnewsworthy since it doesn't fit the liberal agenda. Kudos to the teacher who tackled the attacker.

Things at schools are getting way out of hand, to many kids have mental problems. Maybe the schools should look into the employ of a psychiatrist.

Bob in VA is correct. It did not fit the liberal media agenda because it did not involve an AR-15 or a high capacity magazine. So to those idiots it was not worth mentioning. It was a shotgun that Ole Joe recommended that was used. So not wanting to hurt Obummer they left it out! FOX news will report the facts good or bad for either side.

Bob in VA is correct. It did not help the liberal agenda to report this shooting because it did not involve an AR-15 or a high capacity magazine. Sadly for them it was the shotgun that Ole Joe Biden told everyone to go buy that was used. FOX News as usual reported the facts!

FOX News reporting FACTS. That would be something new! You must still be drinking the cool-aid too!

Let's see if this shooter was on one of the behavior modifying drugs so prescribed for young males who prefer not to behave like almost-females.

Johnny Law @ 1/16/2014 10:12 AM

I guess that is why FOX News is #1, because they are so biased and the majority of viewers in the country have it all wrong and you perry know it all! HA HA what a stupid comment. Step away from the Kool-Aid my liberal friend, ingesting that is not covered by Obamacare if you go to the ER!! LOL!!!
