It seems that the media has a real problem with being truthful. If you followed this story over the past 48 hours it has changed from:
Mother being a teacher and he shot her and students at the school.
Principle let him in the school because she knew him. Shooter shot his way in.
He shot children with a rifle but the rifle is found in car.
He shot children with hand guns but medical examiner says they were shot with rifle.
Brother was with the shooter. Brother was not with the shooter.
Brother was the shooter. Shooter had brothers ID
Mother is a gun toting lady.
Mother and son go and shoot gun a practice range often. ATF say no evidence of shooting range practice.
Mother was a teacher, mother was a substitute teacher, mother was a teacher’s aid, and mother was a part time stock broker.
Shooter is autistic, aspergers, personality disorder, anti-social, problem child.
Shooter is highly educated and very intelligent.
This is just the list of items I can recall from watching TV, and reading various articles on the internet. I am not going to mention any source
because it appears to me that all sources are equally guilty of providing knowingly false information. I feel it has been done for rating, political
agenda, and sensationalism.
Our news sources are so skewed, and intentional so. Also, they not only do sound bites but it is now obvious they are willing to make up stories just
to get better ratings or to push some social political agenda. This one event much like 9/11 needs to make us take a hard look at the integrity of
our media. They are so powerful and reach every inch of the world that serious ramifications should be put into place for false reporting. The new
media overall is much like the weatherman or woman they can be completely wrong day after day and no consequences. Plus, it appears to be a
conspiracy of all the new organizations working together reporting the same inaccurate or intentionally false information.
What do you think about this issue? I am tired of 4 news media outlets being able to falsely report any story without ramifications. I think some
sort of facts checking must be required before releasing information. I am just waiting to find out the shooter was a CIA operative and mind
controlled to do this in order to change gun laws. I am not intending to be insensitive to this tragedy and I just tired of the outright lies being
