New Fox & Friends host Elisabeth Hasselbeck on Tuesday suggested that "the left" was trying to make Monday's mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard about "gun control," when what the country really needed was a registry to track video game purchases.

There are just too many guns in America It seems that every Tom Dick or Harry can have one It will never be any different unless they start to get serious about what people can own guns

Fixed noise has no business being called a news outlet. That company and its band of thugs, morons, and crooks pedals lies and ignorance to a huge number of stupid people which is tragic. Thank you for exposing another example of propaganda designed to support the right, in this case the gun manufacturers.

Hasselbeck is the definition of "blonde bimbo". She parrots all the GOP/TP propaganda pretending to be an authority on almost everything, ~ all the while proving she knows absolutely nothing.

I have to show my driver's license every time I go to recycling center to redeem my soda cans & Plastic Bottles I went today & got $148.00. You can't kill 12 people with a soda can

If guns weren't so freely available then they wouldnt to be used so easily to kill anyone or anything - as for games its the mentality of people playing them a mojority of people know its pretend but the ones who can't grasp that fact can get hold of guns and take the idea into the real world in some cases - mostly its hatred and greed - most of those that commit mass shootings are actually quite sane - society needs to change and attitudes, the vigilanty is no better that the one who committed the act

I could only watch a minute of the video because the two gentlemen were sort of smiling while talking about the weapons on the newspaper and what was at the scene of the crime. Conservatives make my skin crawl.

Millions of perfectly normal good people play video games and don't hurt anyone. This woman is just another puppet being paid a lot of money for spouting off about something she obviously knows nothing about. Video games don't kill people, people with guns kill people.

I think that sounds so stupid! My parents never censored anything I watched or listened to. I was exposed to movies with really graphic violence & sex, foul language & you name it. I'm not a violent person. I didn't go into any kind of "sex" business because of all the sex I was exposed to nor do I "get around". I do not have a criminal record. I have never been arrested. Crazy!

Wow, I never minded her on The View. I thought she gave the show some balance. I guess they kept her in check all those years. Not at Fox, she can say what eveil she really thinks.

Typical warped Fox news commntary they sort of sidestepped the whole issue that shows like so many of the NRA types that are bad marksmen as they completely missed the point. The shooter had mental health issues was the main reason why he did the shooting not to mention that Fox News seems to get a full on chubby every time there is a shooting, displaying the very weapons used in a sick form of gun porn. Then they get their jollies but claiming that it is every but the fact that the NRA is facilitating every gun crime by railing against even the smallest measure that would prevent these shootings. Of course Fox news is always in the cheerleading the most despicable option but then that is what you would expect from a company owned by Rupert Murdoch? He is not exactly known ever being on the moral high ground when he allowed people to hack into dead girl's mobile phone.

Yes, Hasselbeck is just a real tool. It's just hard for me to get through my head that a mom with 3 children could spout such ignorance. She's more worried about video games than guns?! This woman desperately needs a wake up call.

The major networks are paid to keep the masses occupied and distracted - that's how I see it, mostly.
news should not be about "personalities", but it is
it's competitive and sometimes ugly
same for many of the "talk shows", and other programmes controlled insidiously and directly to air material that conforms to an agenda.

it's got to the point that, sometimes, I feel they have given over their identities as individuals to the "cause" - securing the network/program/whatever, and keeping in line with the power dynamics.

like the emperor's newclothes, few dare to speak out. But it happens in the news world, and sometimes elsewhere. Always it's a sketchy proposition, knowing your job/"career" might be on the line.

I'm afraid the plethora of divisive and disreputable comments made on the networks over time, and the disinformation spread on an ongoing basis, is one of the most insidious and damaging problems in America today.

Not that there aren't serious problems, already, but the media and "social" programming is so dysfunctional, in my view, that there is nothing much favourable to balance it.

Many parents don't want their children watching t.v. and I don't blame them. I think it's bad for the health of everyone, by and large.

It's too bad that selfish people with selfish agendas have to ruin something that might have been instrumental in helping society, rather than bring it down.

Greed and politics, and the people/organizations associated with manipulative, self promoting agendas and self interest are fragmenting society with their constant blarney, lies, and contention, and a whole lot more.

Does anyone go to the doctor and say, I saw this drug on t.v. and do you think it would be right for me? probably

Doctors are supposed, to suggest treatment for patients, not the drug industry - how much do they spend on all those ads!!
networks take all that money, and don't do news in depth - just rush through serious, important events so they can get to something fuzzy to gush about.

It's not professional,just some absurd kind manifestation of something gone wrong for some time now.

No one person seems able to change the course of any of it. I would scrap them, wipe them out. It would be great, in my mind.
But it isn't going to happen. It's a social virus , part of our culture, accepted by many, far too many. Perhaps the day will come when the whole system will fail, somehow. That would be interesting to see. What would come next, would be another form of mass exploitation.

with social media, people can malign or dump on people, like never before - but not without backlash.

too many people with mikes, waffling away
