When was the last time a sitting member of Congress was shot? If you dont find this "newsworthy" there are many other outlets for you to choose.

Of course the shooting was newsworthy. I just don't think it's breaking news when they put her in an ambulance and take her to the airport.

I think the newsworthy part is that she actually left the hospital for a rehab clinic.
