Idiot professor refuses to back down from Newtown massacre conspiracy theory
“While it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquire whether the Sandy Hook shooting ever took place—at least in the way law enforcement authorities and the nation’s news media have described.”
These are the words from conspiracy theorist James Tracy, who works for Florida Atlantic University and still stands up with his ideas that Sandy Hook massacre didn't happened has reported by the media.
He insists that the number of shooters and dead people is incorrect, the shooters were more.
He claims that "crisis actors" may have been hired by Obama to modify the opinion people have on guns.
The professor holds a Ph.D. in mass comunication at the University of Iowa (and according to his profile he "teaches courses examining the relationship between commercial and alternative news media and socio-political issues and events.") and he wrote in his blog: “As documents relating to the Sandy Hook shooting continue to be assessed and interpreted by independent researchers there is a growing awareness that the media coverage of the massacre of 26 children and adults was intended primarily for public consumption to further larger political ends.”
He was also interviewd by CBS12 and he said: "The whole country mourned about Sandy Hook, but yet again the investigation that journalistic institutions should have carried out never took place, in my opinion.", "As a society we need to look at things more carefully. Perhaps we as a society have been conditioned to be duped."
In his not very popular blog (consisting of only 222 followers, which doesn't obviously mean is not to be considered valuable in theory) he writes: "To declare that the shooting 'never took place' is cause for intense opprobrium in most polite circles where, in familiar Orwellian fashion, the media-induced trance and dehistoricized will to believe maintain their hold."
Peter Phillips, president of the Media Freedom Foundation and Project Censored, said to Yahoo News:
"James Tracy isn't promoting a "conspiracy" theory regarding Sandy Hook, but rather saying the mainstream media distorts the news, and doesn't follow up on important questions. There were reports of more than one shooter in the Sandy Hook case. Tracy is not denying that it happened, but he is saying that when such events do happen it is the responsibility of the media to fully investigate all aspects of the story and not just sensationalize the tragedy."
Mary Jane Saunders, the president of Florida Atlantic University, also made a statement to Yahoo News:
"I am sure that many of you are aware of the recent comments by a Florida Atlantic University faculty member regarding the tragic events that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14. I want to make it clear that those views and opinions are not shared by Florida Atlantic University, and I am personally saddened by any media stories that have added to the pain felt by the victims’ families. FAU joins the entire nation and people around the world in feeling profound grief for the lives lost on that awful day."
As always we're are just left with questions and possibilities and not with an answer, the truth is left to each one of us.
