Here we go again. And the MSM wonders why we don’t trust or believe them.

What a nightmare:

Poor guy, first he gets blamed, then he finds out it’s his brother, then he finds out his mom is dead, then he finds out his Dad is dead, then he finds out his girlfriend is dead.

Poor kid’s life has been turned upside down by the media’s laziness. I hope he sues them all.

Yet on all these shooting threads today there's people who somehow believed there was a conspiracy to spin information by the media because details weren't immediately released.

Anyways, it sucks to be this guy.

This is precisely why people should calm down and let the FACTS settle into place before they jump to any conclusions...

It is starting to appear that it was Adam Lanza, who I’m guessing is the 20 year old brother of 24 year old Ryan Lanza.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/12/14/police-respond-to-shooting-at-connecticut-elementary-school/

It’s looking to me like maybe Adam wanted to destroy everybody’s lives, and for whatever reason couldn’t or decided not to actually kill his brother, just mess him up by sticking the brother’s ID in his pocket before going on his rampage so that Ryan would get blamed.

I’m not clear on whose girlfriend and friend are missing. Is it Adam’s, or Ryan’s?

I doubt that “We’re going to wait on releasing a name until all the facts are in” Yeah, right. Not in their lexicon.

Oh, what an AWFUL AWFUL deal for him. Sounds like he did not even know it was his brother while posting “it wasn’t me”.... How terrible.

“She’s missing but which guys girlfriend is it?”

I guess it should be the killer’s girlfriend as that makes more sense. But first, I heard he killed his mother at that house and that was wrong as she was teaching at the school and killed.

Then, I heard it was his brother he killed at that house, then I heard it is his father he killed at the house. We’ll have to wait until this is sorted out.

OK, a CNN reporter is around the house and said the parents of the killer are divorced so likely that isn’t the husband who was in the house. An ambulance took someone out of the house, don’t know if alive or dead.

Read that parents are divorced, father lives in Hoboken, mother in Newtown, both parents dead and another brother. Who knows. The press is VERY unreliable. It’s about ratings and not accuracy.

Looks live Heaven is receiving a few more child residents and Hell welcomes another vile murderous cretin into its flaming holes. One has to be the son of diablo to do such wicked deeds.

“Read that parents are divorced, father lives in Hoboken, mother in Newtown, both parents dead and another brother. Who knows. The press is VERY unreliable. It’s about ratings and not accuracy.”

In a case like this, the press is limited to get correct information. They are reporting as they get it but the siutation is changing so it’s not their fault the info. isn’t totally reliable right now, so I reject it’s about ratings right now. This is a terrible thing and people want to know about it so reporters are doing the best they can - none of their reporting incorrectly is their fault.

From what you have read, maybe it is the father who was shot in that house. As I said, a reporter at the house said an ambulance took someone out of there but reporter didn’t know if the person was alive or dead or who it was.

Problem is, a lot of those facts disappear soon after the event.
Web pages of such perpetrators tend to get deleted or scrubbed fast. We’ve seen this several times.
That there is fog in war doesn’t mean you wait until it clears before acting.

I never believe early reports for any incident. Inevitably it’s all wrong. In this case, someone was BADLY maligned because of the media’s urgency to get a scoop regardless of accuracy.

You don't give names unless confirmation is firm. They gave FB and Twitter accounts. It IS about ratings. The station with the most updates gets the viewers. The press is shameless. There are dead babies and a family of a brother that are dead. All they want is to be first with "This just in".....

I'm going to eat dinner. This is maddening.

Have a good evening.

The older brother was taken in cuffs, while the station pointed out that he hadn’t been arrested.

You weren’t the only one. One freeper was so certain it was true that he advised all when reported his find in other sites to attribute it Free Republic.

Fortunately for him, he is one of the few on FR if he asks his thread to be pulled...it gets pulled.

It looks like the father, earlier reported dead, is alive.

Now I'm not seeing reports of a deceased brother, either.

So what do we have? Shooter is Ryan Lanza. Oh. No, it isn't.

Shooter killed his father. Oh. No, he didn't.

Shooter killed his brother. Oh. No, he didn't.

Amazing how many things get misreported.

The misreporting by the press is just unforgivable. These people are absolute clowns.
