Skip to comments.FAU prof stirs controversy by disputing Newtown massacre
Posted on 01/08/2013 9:22:07 AM PST by Uncle Chip
A communication professor known for conspiracy theories has stirred controversary at Florida Atlantic University with claims that last month's Newtown, Conn., school shootings did not happen as reported or may not have happened at all.
Moreover, James Tracy asserts in radio interviews and on his memoryholeblog.com. that trained "crisis actors" may have been employed by the Obama administration in an effort to shape public opinion in favor of the event's true purpose: gun control.
"As documents relating to the Sandy Hook shooting continue to be assessed and interpreted by independent researchers, there is a growing awareness that the media coverage of the massacre of 26 children and adults was intended primarily for public consumption to further larger political ends," writes Tracy, a tenured associate professor of media history at FAU and a former union leader.
In another post, he says, "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."
Tracy cites several sources for his skepticism, including lack of surveillance video or still images from the scene, the halting performance of the medical examiner at a news conference, timeline confusion, and how the accused shooter was able to fire so many shots in just minutes.
Tracy said he believes the deaths at Sandy Hook may have resulted from a training exercise. "Was this to a certain degree constructed?" he said. "Was this a drill?
But, he added, he has not seen bodies, or photos of bodies. "Overall, I'm saying the public needs more information to assess what took place. We don't have that. And when the media and the public don't have that, various sorts of ideas can arise."

My first impression was that this guy is a nutcase, but when you actually read his comments and questions, he is like a voice in the wilderness who, at the very least, asks critical questions that need answers.

Yes he is a lettered NUTCASE
Call me looney, send me tinfoil, but I tend to agree with the prof, at least on a couple counts.
We STILL don’t have the whole story.
All we have is the rabid commie scum fired-up to encroach upon our liberties as free people.
That’s about a ridiculous as thinking Obama would walk guns across the Mexican border to the drug cartels to blame Mexico’s gun violence on the USA gun culture.
I’m sure the incident did happen—I think it would be too hard to fake. That being said, the whole thing has a surreal feel of being just too convenient a propaganda opportunity for the Left. Tney have probably been waiting (and secretly hoping) for just this sort of thing to happen for a long, long time.
In this age of cellphone cameras why have we seen no pictures or videos of the broken glass in the front of the school, bulletholes in windows, 600 children escorted en masse from the school — just bits here and there.
This fits with the way that each network was telling a different story, with different protagonists, and linking to different locales, where other supposed assassinations were supposed to have happened.
Much talk about “assault weapons” that never entered the school grounds, and no explanation of how the supposed assassin was able to get past the metal detectors that are known to exist at that school.
And you appear to be an Obama control rod troll.
That said and done, we still don't have the whole story and there have been so many false stories floated since the very day of this tragedy that there are bound to be questions and suspicions. We KNOW that obama and holder created and operated Fast and Furious. Knowing that I put absolutely nothing beyond them.
Exactly. There have been a number of things the FedGov has done that don’t pass the “smell test”.
A complicit media is a powerful tool for pulling to wool over the eyes of the public.
Let’s see what he says instead of believing what the MEDIA says he says.
South Florida media is EXTREMELY left wing.
Questions about Newtown, or the Kennedy assassination, get answered with, what else, but another conspiracy; more shadowy actors conspiring to keep everyone else in the dark.
Public servants do not all of a sudden rise to the level required to sustain such a conspiracy. Not in the numbers required anyway.
Sandy Hook stinks to high heaven. We’re being played.
All the shooters so far were on medication. Could they have been "nudged?"
There's no info on what was found on their computers. We know they were instantly confiscated.
What sends up a red flag is the lack of vital information on all the shooters. Who were they chatting with on the net? What groups were they part of? Who did they have contact with?
People died, and politicians ran to the cameras to "save us from ourselves." That's all we know about any of the players or the events.
Actually, where ARE the pics of bodies and surveillance vids???
