All 3 major networks reported the Bushmaster in the trunk.
Early news reports on a major story are often inaccurate. For example early reports from Columbine indicated that 25 students had died and three young hispanic males had been arrested.
The weapon pulled from the trunk of Lanza's car was photographed, tagged as evidence and bagged by crime scene investigators. The scene inside the school was extensively photographed and the position of every bullet and shell casing documented before these items were collected as evidence. Any bullets found in the victims were also catalogued as evidence. The investigators know what weapons were used and where they were found. Early reports in the news media are often little more than hunches and rumors.
