John Roberts is tired of school shootings

Fox News anchor John Roberts paused during his coverage of the shooting at a private school in Nashville that left three children and three adults dead to reflect on the staggering pace of school shootings across the country and said that he and his colleagues are “very tired” of covering the growing number of school shootings in America.

Fox’s live broadcast of a press conference being given by officials in Nashville was briefly interrupted by a woman in attendance who exclaimed that she was fed up with a slew of mass shootings at schools in the United States in recent years.

Roberts followed the woman by saying “the woman said it quite succinctly, ‘aren’t you tired of this?’ Yes, we are tired of this. We are very tired of having to report on school shootings week in and week out,” Roberts said during the network’s live coverage of the incident.

Roberts noted that just last week, Fox News correspondent Alicia Acuna had been live on the air from outside the Denver high school where two people were shot—the second school shooting at the school in a matter of weeks. Acuna’s son attends the school and was unhurt. He reunited with his mother for the first time during Acuna’s live broadcast.

He also pointed out the Uvalde and Sandy Hook massacres.

“Uvalde, Texas, Sandy Hook … and yes, I think as a nation I, we, are tired of these,” he said referring to the mass killings at schools. “I don’t mean to be speaking out of turn, but I believe as a parent that there are a lot of people out there who are sick of these school shootings.”
