Af El Paso mass shooting, Fox News anchor tries to link video games to mass shootings.
Fox News guest and Fox anchor agree that now is not the time to talk about gun violence, and instead people should be behaving more like President Trump.
Fox News anchor and guest suggest there may be an ISIS connection to El Paso shooting, especially given the proximity to the "very porous" border.
Just prior to that clip, the Fox News guest had said that incidents like this is why the U.S. military is doing "counterterrorism work" around the world.
While Fox News was saying that garbage, @oneunderscore__ was reporting that law enforcement does believe that the racist and anti-immigrant manifesto was the shooter's manifesto, and explained how 8chan has "a body count."
@oneunderscore__ After the El Paso shooting press conference that never once mentioned anything like it, the Fox News anchor pivots back to "violent video games"
@oneunderscore__ Asked about the makeup of the El Paso shooter, Fox News guest -- without any evidence -- suggests the shooting may connected to playing too much Fortnite
@oneunderscore__ This was at the top of the hour, but it's still very, um, interesting as to when Fox News cut away from this question to Beto.
@oneunderscore__ Fox News homepage doesn't mention El Paso shooter's ideology or links to similar mass shootings

Fox homepage has an article about the shooting and antifa (there are no reports linking antifa)

Clearest hint at ideology is "hate crime" -- but even that article demurs entirely
