Skip to comments.Anderson Cooper Goes After ĎAnonymous Internet Trollsí Pushing Conspiracies About Newtown And Gun
Posted on 01/15/2013 6:27:07 PM PST by Nachum
Last week Anderson Cooper took on some of the more ridiculous conspiracy theories about the tragic Sandy Hook shooting, one in particular claiming that the shooting simply never happened. But tonight, Cooper took on perhaps one of the most shocking theories of all: the whole shooting was a gigantic conspiracy to take away peoples guns.
Cooper reminded viewers of the Florida professor who has been pushing the conspiracy theories, and revealed that said professor reacted to his initial report with a blog post attacking Cooper for wanting to cause him harm. Cooper said that the professor has his rights to free speech, and just wanted to hold him accountable for his comments. The professor is also part of a growing conspiracy that the media is falsely reporting on the shooting in a concerted effort to take away peoples guns.
Cooper patiently debunked theories about the media coverage of the shooting, and brought on two guests, one of whom was the family member of an Aurora shooting victim, to address the conspiracies. Cooper pointed out much of the evidence cited is based on initial reporting, which Cooper admitted can often be inaccurate. Alex Seitz-Wald said many conspiracy theorists are taken in by confirmation bias and ignore any evidence that contradicts their conspiratorial beliefs.

Full title: Anderson Cooper Goes After Anonymous Internet Trolls Pushing Conspiracies About Newtown And Gun Control
Can’t imagine who these “anonymous internet trolls” might be...
My only question is about the gun used. NBC said the FBI reported that 4 handguns were found in the school and the rifle was found in the car.
The Left will milk this tragedy for all its worth.
You may get a glimpse at the official Newtown police report in about oooh a year from now.
A shotgun was removed from the trunk of Adam’s vehicle, at night oddly enough.. The question is, why would Lanza use a long range rifle to kill children 30 feet away when he had hand guns in his possession? Oh that’s right, it’s the long range ‘assault weapon’ rifles that the gov’t wants to ban because those are the ones THEY fear the most could be used against THEM. So it’s only fitting that Lanza would use the rifle, otherwise 0bama would have to act to ban handguns and that’s a less realistic door opener to banning all guns.
I watched the YouTube video about the conspiracy. I expected it to be ridiculous. It was not.
It’s interesting how specific the report is. “4 handguns and ONLY handguns” were found in the school.
Nooooooo... Medical examiner said on live television that all wounds made by rifle rounds, 3-11 bullet wounds per child. But, medical examiners are wrong from time to time, right.
The one video that that made say WTF’ was the “parent” who was caught laughing , and once the cameras rolled, he was caught faking his tears..
“Cooper patiently debunked theories about the media coverage of the shooting, and brought on two guests, one of whom was the family member of an Aurora shooting victim, to address the conspiracies.” Did he have any Sandy Hook
Parents on his show?
ME said most victims were killed with rifle. The rifle was taken from the trunk. I’m confused.
I was sort of looking forward to Cooper interviewing that parent that was chuckling until he saw the cameras were rolling.
The pravda media was unconcerned when conspiracy kooks repeated the “Bush Knew” mantra (including Sen. Hillary Clinton from the floor of the Senate) regarding 9-11. 7 long years.
Having myself warned folks in the initial hours when the bodies were still warm to WAIT to make judgments since so much of the news media reporting is going to consist of unsubstantiated rumors for several days, Anderson would be well advised to leave it at that.
What we need to know now are answers to the question of why, when obvious brain dysfunction is present, you'd have Obama picking Joe Biden to be his point man in the regime's efforts.
Everybody knows Biden has had brain surgery three times ~ unsuccessfully! He has a personal stake in the outcome and undoubtedly will do everything he can to lead the regime's involvement totally away from psychiatric concerns, and certainly away from organic brain injury ~ which, so far, is exactly what he has done. I predicted it, and that's what happened, ergo, my belief that Obama is engaged in some sort of coverup is probably correct.
With this sort of behavior coming from Obama no wonder there are a gazillion other conspiracy theories out there!,
What we need is a LINK between Holmes, Lanza, their family members, and anybody in the Regime ~ but that hasn't popped up yet. That will probably take some time but I wouldn't let the idea be set aside ~ particularly not by Anderson Cooper.
And spend the rest of time mocking the conspiracy theories you've previously defined until you announce all of the conspiracy theories you previously defined are debunked.
C'Mon Anderson, How did United Way of Western Connecticut know about the Sandy Hook shootings two days before they occurred?
There’s your first clue that it was a lie
Could also be because that is what he had the most ammo for. The shotgun would have been a better choice and really made a mess
Why? Because it was /is a great tool to kill people with. 30rd mags, simple operation, can be fired easily, low recoil, etc. The AR-15 is a nice tool. That's why.
Almost as plausible as the govt supplying military arms to Mexican narco terrorists!
