NPR Says It Caused 'Excruciating Pain' by Reporting Gabrielle Giffords' Death

In the immediate aftermath of the Tucson, Ariz., shootings, some media outlets flubbed and incorrectly reported that Rep.

During a Tuesday interview, Kelly said that "[i]t was a terrible mistake" to have turned on the television while the facts of the shooting were still being sorted out.

Jared Loughner's Trial: Previewing the Tucson Massacre Case

The federal criminal case against Tucson shooting suspect Jared Lee Loughner looks to be a straight-forward affair. He was reportedly tackled to the ground inside the Safeway supermarket Saturday morning after firing dozens of rounds from a gun he allegedly purchased at a local store.

Loughner left behind, according to the criminal complaint against him, several written "statements" suggesting premeditation, intent and a specific target. There is also, says the FBI, relevant video surveillance tape of the in...
