2% The investigation into the shootings at Fort Hood Army post in Texas...

Is this a statement about our reactions to mass shootings? I would be interested in news interest polling data at a similar point after Virgina Tech and Columbine.

@Mike Chase:
The placement of that item ("The investigation into the shootings...") suggests that the 2% figure is a typo. The true number is probably between 20% and 27%.

Polls_apart is right. The news release says that it should be 21%.
