Gotta Watch: Behind the scenes of the Reagan shooting

(CNN) Breaking news, 1981-style – It's hard to believe it's been 30 years this month since the failed assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan. CNN – less than a year on the air as the world's first 24-hour news network – sprang into breaking news mode to report initial details of the attack.

    Dave, Central Illinois, your "good president" and his policies are directly responsible for the United States' current economic woes.
