Florida school moves away from professor's claim that Sandy Hook massacre was staged


www.foxnews.com

“Inconsistencies and anomalies abound when one turns an analytical eye to news of the Newtown school massacre,” Tracy, 47, wrote. “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.”

Well, it seems this very watchful and educated man from the "mainstream" side of things has some doubt about the validity of things that have been claimed.

I wonder if he is a "conspiracy theorist" as well or if your average American is paying a little bit more attention to information that just doesn't hold up under scrutiny these days.

I'll leave it to you to decide, interesting headline for Fox News to plaster on my home page though, trying to find there agenda for reporting on this still.

From the second paragraph of your link: The Boca Raton school said Tracy, who has also questioned the official version of events of the Kennedy assassination, the 9/11 terror attacks and the Aurora, Colo., movie theater massacre, was speaking only for himself.

I think that this thread is ok because it discusses the media's handling of the situation as opposed to other threads which were "offensive". Or is this one offensive as well, not sure...


Anyway.


A public university in Florida is distancing itself from the controversial claims of a professor who questions whether last month's horrific school massacre in Connecticut really happened.

I find it ridiculous and sad that they feel the need to make this statement.

We know its not you, calm down.

It sounds like the guy is just doing his job. If the school has a problem with that they should do away with the position or back the guy.

If he is right or wrong I believe he will forever be sorry that he stated this publicly. There are people who will now make his life forever miserable.

The man needs a mental health exam after reading the article......and I was worried about seeing a Fox link for what it said abut how far Fox may have fallen before opening it to see how they were covering it.

The University must be VERY uncomfortable on this whole thing. They can't very well go forward or back up with practical considerations of faculty rights and such. Hmmm..... Wow.... His theory is .. How do I say this? Unique.

Maybe he will be called upon to participate in a drill, which will go wrong. Be careful what you say!

To be fair though, I don't think there are very many Americans who haven't questioned the JFK assassination or at least some part of 9/11. I would think there was something wrong with him if he didn't question these events but questioned Sandy Hook.

FoxNews didn't originate this story, it was from the Huffington Post, and that article linked back to this guy's private blog where he waxes poetic on all sorts of conspiracies..

I understand why the University had to distance themselves, there's a lot of murmur in CT about class action suits against the media by the families, nothing concrete yet but, the jist is they want the FCC to examine the broadcast licenses of all the stations that jumped the gun and didn't exactly have the full story first as it's now making their lives a living hell.

I would think it should be okay, based on that criteria. Also, this guy (and the article) is saying nothing of the victims-- just that this may have somehow been "a drill" or otherwise may not have occurred how the media portrayed it.

On the other hand, some people around here seem unusually sensitive regarding Sandy Hook speculation.

Very incorrect. In fact, Lots of people seem to share in his opinions and speculations. Many many pages of which were evidenced here before the discussion was shut down.

Except for the fact that a lot of people were calling the families actors and that the kids didnt' really die and it was upsetting people in Connecticut badly to read this tripe all over the net..

I was being as polite as I could about a theory I think has no business being voiced by a man in a position to carry public notice or a shred of authority in anyone's eyes. I hope the CT families DO find a successful way to go after people like this with civil action. The speculation ...and this is PURE speculation based on imagination on his part..is vile and obscene.

I'm not saying that about you or the OP...don't get me wrong. It's running in main media as a primary story. I'd love to see the guy suspended if not fired though. The pain this crap is putting the families through is over the top and just flat wrong on every level.

^^^ We're all entitled to personal opinions....especially when that guy can share one like that. Mine's as valid to voice.

Good catch and I will say that if at the end of the day all that is wrong with what has been reported regarding Sandy Hook lies solely on the shoulders of horrific reporting by MSM outlets then somebody really should take a look to examine there journalistic integrity and licenses. If this turns out to be the case, well shame on them, thats a pretty big ball to drop.

There are a lot of gun owners who aren't into conspiracies, but are against gun control. Having these ideas put out there might make a ton more people question the official story -- especially since it is being used as pretext to take away their guns.

I have a feeling if FoxNews is putting this out there (after it was on Huffington!) some people in the media also don't buy their own reporting.

Gun control is a very devicive issue, and gun owners come from all walks of life. If this is a conspiracy, this whole ordeal might be creating a whole new batch of conspiracy theorists.

Wrabbit. Count me as one holding your same opinion. This is a never ending nightmare of pain for those poor Families. JMOHO...

I'm not sure why you think a "an associate professor of media history at Florida Atlantic University" is any more qualified to to comment on this than "random guy on the internet". I didn't even know they had professors of media history.

He appears to be a moron.
