Did you even read my several posts that explained my stance and what the OP is about. You aren't the first to miss the point, I probably could have been clearer or explained it better.. Of course, I think that so far this thread has actually done an amazing job demonstrating the influence the media has on perception.
I actually think, Ziggy, you should make another thread at a later date. The thread title of this thread is too explosive and impossible ignore for the point you're trying to make.
It's a common trend at ATS that people don't read whole threads when something explosive has happened.

I noticed this as well. I didn't even bother to argue the point that the Joker doesn't have red hair but the media was trying to spin it as if to say Holmes dyed his hair red to look like the Joker. As if Holmes imitating the joker makes a difference in the murder and wounding of so many people. That was one aspect of all the reporting that has been done that has totally bugged me.
I also wonder if he ever made the statement that he was the Joker.
I know no-one will care, but Caesar Romero in his original role as the Joker, had red hair.
You know, that heath ledger portrayal is not the only one.
It's crazy, you're wondering if he actually said "I'm the joker" but full believe that there is internet wide conspiracy to remove possibly erroneous information that would not make a jot of difference to the outcome of this event, and could potentially protect 2 innocent people who may have lived at the same address as Holmes.
We've already got people alluding that these two may have been 'handlers' - now imagine if their names became public. Holmes is not the only nut job around. Vigilante justice could see 2 people harmed, harassed, intimidated for the clumsy journalist who decided it was a good idea to implicate people by proxy.

Maybe its just me... I am new here after all but these threads are like conversations at a gathering. I have never seen a conversation stay on the same topic for any length of time. Issues come up and discussions always end up somewhere very different than when they start. My point... Is going off topic really a bad thing. People's interests and the resulting conversations are going to head in a direction of the most interest. If you want a detailed review of a specific issue or concern you need to gather all of your facts and evidence and give a lecture... If you post a thread it is only natural that it will eventually go in different directions.

My first question would be, exactly what public records would show that you had roommates? Who has it on file and where did they get the information?
