WND:The Giant, Gaping Hole in Sandy Hook Reporting

by David Kupelian | World Net Daily

Since last month’s horrifying and heartbreaking school massacre in Newtown, Conn., politicians and the press have, as everyone knows, been totally obsessed with firearms.

Indeed, President Obama has vowed to impose strong new gun-control measures on the nation – very soon, with or without Congress.

Other possible factors – from violent video games to the “failure of our mental-health system” to the unintended consequences of making schools “gun-free zones” – have taken a back seat to guns. Within hours of the gruesome mega-crime, the media had provided extensive, round-the-clock coverage of precisely which firearms, manufacturers and calibers the perpetrator had used, how he had obtained them from his mother, where they were originally purchased, and so on.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

But they will find an evil gene, you watch.

And then everyone with that evil gene will be put on SSRIs.... :)

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

And not a word on all the TV News actors

Let us talk about anything, just not that. Lets pretend the actors don't exist, the media (all of them) is not involved in hiding or promoting the actors, and the victims are real and the shooting took place. Lets stay inside this virtual reality so that we never will get anywhere. This article is a whitewash.

It sure is a gaping hole filled by propaganda

Thank you for sharing this as I don't regularly visit WND but so appreciate this article.

Excellent reporting by David Kuplelian.

Sobering reading.

Thank you.
