Well I have been checking out ATS for a while and I signed up just to post on this topic. Thank you for posting something about this article. I read
this article when it was published and I believe there is definitely something suspicious about the entire shooting. I think the weirdest thing about
the article is that they have taken what was easily the most ridiculous theory found on ATS(a theory which some people discussed but almost no one
believed). The claims that 'most of the people involved were actors is completely ridiculous(with the exception of Suzie Heilman, who I don't trust
one bit- the fake crying interview, the screams for christina in her sleep, etc). Obviously people were killed due to a shooting.
But if this is a conspiracy of some kind I do believe that it is being played mostly after the fact through the media. Obviously there is this
possible swipe at conspiracy theorists, but there's other, more compelling evidence. Did anyone read the story published April 24th about a
paparazzi bounty around the Houston area for a picture of Giffords? Just three days later the story drops that she was photographed boarding the
plane to see her husband's launch. In the picture of course you cannot make out anything, other than that a person is at the top of the jet's steps
walking into the cabin.
I use this example because it is a prime example of misleading journalism. First off (obviously), there's no proving that the blob in the picture is
Giffords. In the excessively lovey article about her reunion with her husband upon his return a month later, it is noted that Giffords can barely
walk, as the right side of her body is difficult to move due to being shot in the left side of her brain. So then, how are we supposed to believe
that she walked up a flight of stairs to board the jet? In the picture there is another who seems to be 'pushing' the supposed Giffords up the
stairs. You'll have to observe it yourself. Why not just use a wheelchair..?
But my main point about this is that the media is using some very underhanded techniques to very deliberately paint a picture for the general public.
The 'walking picture' was not taken by a paparazzi(as far as I know- cited as "courtesy KRTK") article there is no mention of the paparazzi bounty
issued just three days before. So to the casual news reader the stories match up either way- 1. They want a picture of Giffords. 2. Here is a
picture of Giffords. A subtle common point of both articles is that there exists a picture of Giffords post-shooting(besides all the obscured face and
hand-holding shots). The articles were published three days apart. Just seems a bit underhanded in some way.
I won't even get into the disgustingly written article about the couple's reunion, which has them kissing and holding hands and really portrays it
as everything short of a second honeymoon, right after, of course, Mark Kelly shot into space for a month or so, leaving his wife to recover on her
own. Do read it. One person even commented "too much info let them have their peace", and that's alot coming from a yahoo drone hah. Again, it
seems to be written with a very specific motive. This is just my opinion, of course. I am in college studying english and creative writing. I know
that doesn't automatically make me super-qualified but I think these articles are worth investigating from a writers', editors', journalists'
For me, the shooting is a conspiracy as very least at a state level. There is a strong conservative base here in AZ that clearly hasn't been in line
with Washington on a few different issues. I hope I didn't bring the topic too far off track! My main point was that the media has been painting a
very deliberate picture post-shooting, why, I am unsure.
