Sandy Hook: more television brainwashing using guests as fodder

by Jon Rappoport
December 30, 2012

Somebody has to write about these things. Since I’ve worked as a reporter for 30 years, I know enough about how the game is rigged.

I’m talking about the big mass tragedies. Sandy Hook, the Aurora theater, Hurricane Sandy, Katrina.

Many of the interviews with survivors are done on the spot, with no prep. But the biggest interviews are done in a television studio or a home, by a recognized anchor. The setting is arranged beforehand and lit well. A mood and a framework are established.

The guests are prepped by one of the producers before they go on-air. This is where the brainwashing occurs. A potential conflict needs to be resolved. The network has its agenda and the guest has his.

The guest is swimming in a welter of emotions, in the wake of the tragedy. A family member has died. The environment of the storm or the murders is still chaotic.

The network wants to “edit” these feelings, “to convey something specific.”

The producer says to the guest, “What we want to do here is let our audience know how special your daughter was. How wonderful a person she was. We realize, of course, that you’re grieving. We understand and honor that. We do. In this interview, we really want to give you a chance, though, to tell the world what a special girl she was. Talk about her life, her interests, her hobbies, how she was thought of by the family and by friends at school. Honor her memory…”

Now, this may be the last thing on the guest’s mind. This grieving mother may be feeling angry, outraged. She is feeling absolutely desolate. She is feeling lost. Given the opportunity, she would express these feelings.

But this is not what the network or the anchor wants. The “program” at the moment involves “reflection on the happy moments of the child’s life.” It’s part of the pre-set storyline.

Clearly the interviews are staged.

But I don't necessarily agree with what Rappoport says is the consequence. Re CT, in the case of all the staged parent interviews as to what "made their children special," that is, reporters supposedly manipulating them into not showing anger - I don't think seeing parents showing anger would have changed the gov't/media message about the need for gun control. If anything, I'd think it would support that stance. If anything, I'd think But I do think it contrives a sped-up grieving process that makes it appear that they've come to terms with things, giving the message to the public, if "they're" ready to put this behind them, so are you; that is, so stop questioning everything. (For the sake of argument, I'm assuming they actually are grieving parents.)

I'll just keep adding it as I see it....

....I am being saturated in Chicagoland with these stories....


If shooting video games cause school shootings, then Need For Speed games cause people to ram police cars on expressways at 110MPH....right?

the Aurora guy has a hearing today...

...that supposed to "take several...." days or hours to get through....news about what Biden's group is working on in the next 3 weeks "in the wake of the CT shooting"....

Expect to be saturated with "what are we going to do about guns?" rhetoric for the next 3 weeks non-stop....
