So sad...there's always the conspiracy theorists out there, but normally they stick to attacking the government, not citizens. I can't even imagine how those kids felt sitting in the man's driveway, but at least there was someone to take them in and care for them, perhaps providing a few hours of distraction from the chaos unfolding. I guess if you're willing to go the distance of accusing the government and media of fabricating a story like this, it wouldn't phase you to accuse those involved with the rescue efforts. It reminds me a lot of the people who try to deny the holocaust...unfortunate and sad that paranoia clouds the reality of things.

It's even scarier that we have people exactly like that on this forum.

He didn't have to seek out the media in the first place to get on TV.

Pretty sure if he hadn't done that.....

So I hate to say it, but decisions have consequences.

I'm pretty sure I've seen Pax post that the holocaust is a hoax.

Yep.

And we have had SCF insinuate the possibility of the government being involved in the Sandy Hook shooting.

I would also insinuate the possibility of the government being involved in the Sandy Hook shooting to the extent that the facts are not being reported on which gun was used etc. and there are massive detail questions that seem to be purposely unanswered.

But anything above that seems a little bit to "looney tunes" to me.

Yeah, like Bush was behind the attack on the twin towers.   8*

I don't think the government planned the Sandy Hook shooting, but they twisted the actual facts in the case, I'm sure, at least to a certain extent.  Too many unanswered questions.

Does everyone besides me, Flanders, and SCF think the government handled and reported every fact regarding the Sandy Hook shooting accurately and without bias?

Are we paranoid?  Or are you naive?

I think there's always going to be some spin to tragedy regardless of who is in charge of the government. In the case of Newtown, I think a lot of the confusion is because of the overzealous media. I've never seen a more confusing news day when we started off hearing that a gunman had wounded schoolchildren, but all were alive to the end of the day when we knew the total death toll. They botched the number of gunmen, pointing the finger at an innocent man, and the weapons the gunman used.

What I am sure of: A gunman killed 28 people that day (including himself), 26 at Sandy Hook. The government did not play a role in the events. The media at large was inept and irresponsible in their reporting. Government officials will use this tragedy to further their political agendas.

I think the media frenzy with bad and conflicting information made it possible to think something was screwed up.  The only way I would buy into it is if I were to see that the government took total control of the media for a period of time.

My thoughts anyhow.

I'm pretty sure the media sought him out...not the other way around.

But leave it to you to condone the vile actions from the right.  8*

Cuss warning:

Which Party Buys More Into Conspiracy Theories?

"A new Fairleigh Dickinson University poll finds that 63% of registered voters buy into at least one political conspiracy theory.

The nationwide survey asked Americans to evaluate four different political conspiracy theories: 56% of Democrats and 75% of Republicans say that at least one is likely true. This includes 36% who think that President Obama is hiding information about his background and early life, 25% who think that the government knew about 9/11 in advance, and 19% who think the 2012 Presidential election was stolen."*

According to a recent poll, there may be more truthers than you'd believe. Who believes in more conspiracy theories- liberals or conservatives, and why?
