[See NewsBusters for more.] A good guy with a gun saved countless lives at an Indiana mall on Sunday night, stopping a mass shooter before he could cause more mayhem and carnage. CBS Mornings on dispatched that inconvenient part of the story in one sentence and allowed just 26 seconds to the story overall. What’s probably more shocking, however, is that ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today devoted substantial coverage to it. GMA offered three minutes and four seconds and even featured the Greenwood chief of police who said this: “The real hero of the day is the citizen that was lawfully carrying a firearm in that food court and was able to stop the shooter almost as soon as he began.”
