All three evening newscasts on Tuesday and two out of the three morning
shows on Wednesday skipped the dramatic story of an elderly Florida man
who saved a cafe full of people from gun-wielding robbers. Only Good Morning America covered the story of seventy-one-year-old Samuel Williams using his own weapon fend off attackers.
News reader Josh Elliot lauded the "gun-toting senior citizen" for his
quick action and for "not taking it anymore." Co-host George
Stephanopoulos narrated the video: "There he is right there. Takes them
on. Saves the whole cafe." Elliott praised it as "remarkable." He
misleadingly described, "Williams does has a gun license and is not expected to be charged."
