James Tracy, a communications professor at Florida Atlantic University known for dabbling in conspiracy theory, has stirred up quite a bit of controversy by arguing that the Sandy Hook shooting may have been staged.

"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

This is the type of person that commits these types of attacks, when they snap, because they think the government is then trying to kill them to stop the truth from getting out, lol.

Oh hey, just to fan the flames of conspiracy theorists out there: According to Google one of the Sandy Hook relief websites went up and was cached three days before the shooting ;)

Reminds me of when WTC7 was announced by reporters to be collapsed before it even happened. But is there an explanation to this besides conspiracy?

The date isn't when the site was published. Its when the site was last fully indexed by Google. Or so its believed. No one really knows for sure, because Google doesn't tell. It definitely changes and updates, though, so its not the 'first published' date.

Trust me - anyone that thinks this was staged is a hardcore moron. I have two one-step removed connections to people involved in the SHES Massacre - thats all I will say about that. But it wasn't a conspiracy, it wasn't done by the government, and it wasn't anything but a f***king psycho.

Why is this any different to all the 911 conspiracy theories? Seems to me there's always some crackpot blathering on about this stuff.

Adam Lanza was a patsy and the second shooter killed everybody. That's what happened.

Well the original broadcasts on the local CT news did have and show the second shooter that disappeared, so there is that, and I also like how the story went from the Bushmaster being in his car to him shooting everyone with it, instead of the handguns like originally reported, but I'm not the one asking those questions

Tracy thinks that the lack of public scrutiny of the victims' families is a good reason to question the official narrative.

Ugh. Yeah, go harass the grieving parents of dead kids to satisfy your delusional worldview. Scumbag.

You really should read his reasoning, before labeling the professor as a 'crackpot'. ;)

The media reporting on the Sandy Hook shootings was terrible, with numerous factually inaccuracies and made-up nonsense. It's not due to a conspiracy though, rather an attempt to garner ratings by constantly bombarding the viewer with "breaking news". It was the same with the Aurora shooter.

Unfortunately people would rather believe in elaborate conspiracy theories. It's sad that so many people's lives are so devoid of meaning that they have to manufacture elaborate conspiracies where none exist. There are tens of thousands of firearms-related homicides each year, so there really is no need to make up high-profile shootings - politicians really don't have to manufacture anything to have grounds for restricting firearms.

This guy just wants his 15 minutes and hes getting it, his story is so messed up, even CNN decided to report on it. They usually ignore the conspiracy theories.

A few things we know;

people make a lot of noise over events they don't know much about, and near always assume the worse. This gets passed a theory on what happened to others. Someone uses that as hear say and an assumption of facts is created.

The first news reporters that are grabbing a news story go by what the public tell them and they try to put a news story together on information they have at the time. a bit of media leeway is given until a statement is given by the police of actual facts.

If it was a conspiracy, you'd have thought the white house or whoever is behind it would have gotten the facts straight before unleashing the actors or hired hitman/men and letting the media and public in on it.... or maybe that's the plan, give so much false information that people dismiss it when its right under their nose.

Setup or not, the frenzy was done by a person not the weapon. However the media or white house or whoever set it up or are reporting on it have created some what of a black lash on the use of guns. Maybe it was already time with enough parents hating others for having them, could even be that the whole thing was staged but people still don't want guns, or at least want others to have guns. We're still going to have crazy people running around and plotting to kill, next time it might simply be mowing people down in his car or downloading pipe bomb plans off the internet.

Yep. There is a race between networks to "get it first", this usually leads them to getting it wrong. Sometimes woefully wrong. Journalistic integrity and ethics are taking a backseat to rating and sensationalism.

Interesting vid. People cant seem to get their story right.

The amount of people involved in this is far to great to maintain and hold such a vast conspiracy. The only one screaming conspiracy are the ones outside of the box, those who were directly involved or affect by this have said nothing about this being a hoax. To call people who don't buy into this conspiracy ignorant is based on ignorance itself.
