CNN video of police charge at Sandy Hook is not Sandy Hook
http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/341776 ^

Posted on 01/21/2013 1:40:50 PM PST by TigerClaws

+ At the words "they arrived to carnage," the CNN Anderson Cooper report cuts to helicopter footage of seven police officers charging across a parking lot and toward a school. It is breaking news coverage of the Sandy Hook shooting just hours earlier. The three-minute report posted on the day of the shootings at the official CNN website is entitled "Tragedy Strikes at Elementary School." But the school is almost certainly not Sandy Hook.

So it is less believable that CNN used stock footage of a school shooting in the minutes after the violence, than CNN being involved in a breathtaking conspiracy to make Americans falsely believe that 26 children were murdered?

No, but it is believable that CNN could have received the video from an outside source

If the media and the government don’t wish to be thought of as liars, then perhaps they should stop lying.

Tell me, why should I believe any of them or anything that they say when the only thing that I have ever seen actual proof of is their lies?

Did it happen? Maybe.

Have I seen any acutal proof that it happened? No.

At first I blamed bad reporting asking the rhetorical question "How could they get so much so wrong so fast".

That can be partially written off to the urge to be first to get the story on TV. But now little of the original reporting was proven to be correct (perps name, mother's job, father's fate firearms used etc). Yet, the variations of the story do not add-up even now.

The only thing that has been clear cut is the rush to use this event in a call to ban assault weapons (whatever they are), hi capacity magazines and watching the libs angst and hand-wringing on TV

At the link provided: “It is St. Rose of Lima School, a private school a few miles away, also in Newtown.”

How did CNN get footage at one school where there was not a shooting mixed into this report only about Sandy Hook? That’s all: just a question.

For this to be the real footage the CNN helicopter would have had to beat the local cops to the site.

Which would REALLY be suspicious.

OF COURSE they used stock footage. Jeez.

Off the top of my head, I would assume that all elementary schools in the area were immediately placed on lockdown, and they got footage of one such school in the process.

For the record, I doubt there is anyone on FR with more loathing for the corrupt left-wing media than myself. But a bunch of kids were shot and killed, and speculating to the contrary simply makes one look foolish. There are a billion questions that simply have no answer if this were not the case.

The more media malpractice the more people will belive the conspiracy nuts because the media keep showing they can’t be trusted.

And people worry about the conspiracy nuts, the media empowers them by NOT doing their job in a Impartial and Competent manner.

Of course then the media cracks down on crackpots instead of cleaning up their act which then feeds the crackpots more until the average joe belives the crackpots more than the media, then revolution happens led by the “crack pots” who are more trusted.

It is most beliveable that the so called journaists over at CNN are lazy arsehats who in an effort to appear sensational use stock footage of live events to try to bolster their declining ratings....

As a Newtown resident the clip of police running into a building... the building is NOT Sandy Hook Elementary.

Some kind of stock footage of cops running into St. Lima of Rose School in the late afternoon given the angle/length of their shadows on their left sides as they run South.

As a Newtown parent the "it never happened" stories really tick me off, but the journalism/reports about this story certainly are shoddy and makes me wonder what is being withheld and why.

I live a little north of there and agree. Twenty six people will slaughtered by someone identified as Adam Lanza. The manufacturing of news, as demonstrated by the CNN footage, and the complete lack of curiosity as it pertains to the alleged gunman himself and his contacts and internet footprint prior to the murders makes you wonder who is really calling the shots on this story.

Donning my tinfoil I will say that he was either helped, or goaded into it, and will go further to state that I believe that Adam's handler or "online advisor" gets a federal paycheck.

I don't believe we have been given the full story. Why are the records being seal for 90 days? Is this to give the Obama administration time to get something through Congress on gun control, before we learn the whole truth.

If you live in Newtown, can you tell us what really went on in the woods. The Newtown Bee claimed it was an off duty tactical officer from another town. This doesn’t explain why he was there in the first place or why he ran from police. To me that indicates someone who doesn't want to be identified as being at the scene.

He could have been shot. I just don't understand why he ran with armed police chasing him.

Wow...

I’m not trying to be flip whatsoever, but I wonder if the parents were shown stock footage of the missing children. We were told that not one of the 20 families wanted (were allowed?) to see the bodies. First it was allegedly damage to the bodies, later, the coroner said to the faces. That’s the part that really gets to me, I don’t understand it.

The facts are scarce, but the truth is, surviving victims, families, first responders, police, employees at Sandy Hook, local politicians, doctors, nurses, bus drivers, media camera shooters, local reporters, killers family, friends of all the above, interviewers have all but gone underground. The story has evaporated and the only aftermath we hear of this event is the daily attack on the second amendment. There is no comparison, not even close, with the publicity of Columbine or even Aurora. There were twenty six year olds riddled with bullets, the most devastating thing imaginable, and is being treated like nothing happened.

In addition to CNN’s own ethical standards, the Radio Television Digital News Association’s (RTDNA) and Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), both recommend a code of ethics for the media industry. When it comes to covering breaking news, RTDNA’s core value reads, “Professional electronic journalists should pursue truth aggressively and present the news accurately, in context, and as completely as possible.”11 SPJ adds that media entities should “[m]ake certain that headlines, news teases and promotional material, photos, video, audio, graphics, sound bites and quotations do not misrepresent. They should not oversimplify or highlight incidents out of context.”12 CNN failed to live up to both of these organizations’ standards.

Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, connected to the Sandy Hook Scandal is a LIE, FRAUD, DISTORTION, MANIPULATION or some other bullsh!t deception. These "grieving people" are all FAKES, LIARS and PLANTS.

The fact that CNN is now splicing video (from a police drill at some other school) to manipulate public opinion FURTHER VINDICATES those of us who know that this "shooting" is most likely a fabrication conducted by the d@mn democrats to strip Americans of our 2nd Amendment Rights.

Precisely, and it bears repeating. Compare the genuine emotional responses from the victims and families at a REAL school shooting such as Columbine or Virginia Tech to the crap at the Sandy Hook Faker Show, and it's easy to see the chicanery.

You probably are right; it may have been just an incredibly stupid mistake on an extremely important news story that the CNN producer, editor, reporter and director made -- twice -- in the same video piece. I trust that you watched and listened to the video in question before posting this.

I'm stumped too and really believe there is more to this story.

The fact that the records have been sealed may be one reason for the blackout. Another reason is that CNN, NBC, and the rest want to see gun confiscation in our country and they are willing to hold off reporting the whole story or asking questions that may help find out what happened until Obama gets what he wants. NY was the first to pass a new gun ban and they are hoping other states follow suit.

We don't even know for sure if the car belongs to the Lanza family. Did Adam Lanza drive. I haven't heard anyone mention whether he did or didn't. Evidently, they can't find a gun range where Nancy Lanza supposedly took her son. Her BMW was supposedly at her house, and on and on.

That sounds like a conspiracy to me. Out of those 20 families, somebody in the families would have insisted on viewing the bodies...and if not allowed to by government, would have gone public about it.

As is usual when dealing with leftists...something smells fishy in Realityville. And much like re: the Benghazi episode, we will probably never know the truth here.

Seeing the video of Emilie’s “dad” smiling and mouthing “I have a mortgage - can we get started” before he knew the camera was rolling, then totally changing his character raised a huge question for me. And the “retired psychologist” who found the children in his driveway was very bizarre. Something is just wrong. I don’t know what but something is.

Alinsky? Every who disagrees with you is using some tactic?

Why would videos that use video source material from Truther HQ even be the starting point of what is the truth.

How about doing some research other than piggybacking off of truthers videos as sources.

Actually, it sounds like a conspiracy theory to me. I’m sure the families were warned against viewing the bodies, if they were is as bad condition as the coroner said, but nobody could stop the families from viewing the bodies. They had to release the bodies to the families’ possession so that they could have funerals. At that point, any of the family members was free to look at the bodies if they wanted to.

Within days, we knew every moment and movement of the columbine shooters lives, from their birth to their suicides. We knew their friends, enemies, grades, teachers, neighbors what they wore, what they had for breakfast and picture after picture. I have seen one picture of Adam Lanza, which looks photo shopped with distorted features and frankly, not even like a real person. I seriously wonder if there was ever such a person as Adam Lanza.

And yeah, I also questioned the plethora of deaths, accidental or otherwise, and the questionable incidents surrounding the Clintonista presidency.

Something is being hidden, and that is obvious.

As an aside, I am sick to death of people saying that “mistakes’ or “stupidity” plays any part at all in what the revolutaries are doing. They of course may be stupid, and make mistakes. But the evil that they do, the lies they tell, the people they kill - are 100% intentional.

For instance, the idea touted by the msm/gov (no one on FR believes this) that Fast and Furious was “botched” and that’s why the MX cartels got the weapons is obviously fake. They botching was that they were caught at it. Etc.

The Sandy Hook incident reeks even worse than Benghazi, with many more deaths (presumably). I don’t doubt that people died. Just probably not exactly what they present, and their story is manufacted and tweaked, IMHO there is no doubt.

I agree, I believe this tragedy happened, but I also believe the regime has people in place to exploit it to the max.

What's more curious is the attacks one gets for even questioning the "official" story.

I've been called a "truther" "conspiracy nut" etc for daring to point out inconsistencies and search for the truth.

Quite telling if'n you ask me.....especially when it the same posters and they are on EVERY thread.

I’m sorry your town was hit with this horror, DTogo. Is it going alright for you?

The news reporting on this story has been as unprofessional as I have ever seen. That is saying a lot.

I know some people think it did not happen but they are few and far between. I dislike that part of the conspiracy chorus, too.

The discrepancies in reporting are par for the course in the dumbed down, dishonest media. It’s no conspiracy; just uneducated wannabe socialist politicans pretending to be reporters.
