NYTimes article about the Connecticut shooting immediately reminds the readers of:

"The response to mass shootings, even the one that nearly took the life of a member of Congress, Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona..."--blah-blah-blah

Nearly took her life? Six people died in that shooting, including Judge John Rolls (a Republican), and eighteen others were wounded, yet the only name we ever hear is Giffords, Giffords, Giffords, as if the other victims did not even exist.
