Talk Shows React To Aurora Shootings
July 23, 2012 at 6:07 PM (PT)
Talk shows around the country continued to get interviews with survivors and witnesses of the AURORA, CO movie theater shootings.
COMPASS MEDIA NETWORKS' TODD SCHNITT interviewed PIERCE O'FARRILL, whom suspect JAMES HOLMES allegedly shot three times in the incident. The interview, including O'FARRILL's description of the chaos, thoughts on the death penalty, and visit from President OBAMA, is available at schnittshow.com and earned a spot on the DRUDGE REPORT on MONDAY.
Meanwhile, at CURTIS MEDIA Talk WPTF-A/RALEIGH, JOE WADE FORMICOLA interviewed witness EVAN FARRIS, who was in the theater when the shooting happened. Hear the interview in the "On Demand" section of wptf.com under "WPTF News Plus."
And the syndicated XTREMEDIA shows -- the KEVIN MCCULLOUGH Show, BALDWIN/MCCULLOUGH LIVE, and the DANI JOHNSON Show -- all devoted most of their time to the AURORA shootings on FRIDAY and over the weekend. BALDWIN/MCCULLOUGH co-host and actor STEPHEN BALDWIN, who was on a publicity tour in CHEYENNE, WY, took a detour to AURORA to meet with people who were affected by the shootings and was interviewed by DON LEMON on CNN. "I'm only here to ask the nation to pray for AURORA, the families, and everyone whose lives have been impacted by these events," said BALDWIN.
