Big Story shooting in Miami

Reported by Chrish - December 7, 2005

The Big Story today 12/5/05 was entirely about the shooting of a passenger on an American Airlines flight gated at Miami Airport. The coverage flowed from Studio B to Your World to the Big Story in a seamless 3-hour orgy of too much not enough information yet. When Special Report with Brit Hume came on at 6pm ET it appeared other world news was going to get some coverage. The stay-home-moms got nothing but drama and fear.

The details were still sketchy - was he on the plane disembarking or coming from the waiting area onto the plane? A rather large detail but unsettled as of the end of the program. Gibson seemed intent on getting someone to divulge how many air marshalls we have, but nobody knew or told. Overall, over coverage with few facts but to be expected.

Gibson did declare that he thinks that all the live reporting was going to stand the test of time and that the story would not evolve, comparing it to the London shooting of last July. We'll see.
