News of the attempted assassination of President Gerald Ford (1913-2006) broke immediately after it happened. All three of the major television news stations were filming as Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme (1948- ) pushed toward the president with her pistol, capturing the event as it happened. Newspapers of the day splashed the front pages with images of Fromme, Secret Service agents and the president. The Washington Star’s September 6, 1975, coverage of the startling event is typical of what front pages all over the country looked like the day after the attempted assassination.
