At "Anderson Cooper's 360":
The clip opens to the words "It was to carnage they arrived." It comes right after a clip of Lt. Vance telling the press that the police entered the building. Since the only "carnage' we are talking about is the Sandy Hook carnage, the viewer is led directly to conclude that what he is seeing is police entering Sandy Hook, i.e. "It was to [the Sandy Hook] carnage they [the police you are seeing on the screen] arrived."
So it is a flat-out lie, no ifs and or buts.
Dan Rather was fired for flashing pictures of documents which turned out to be a forgeries, saying George Bush was AWOL on his Guard service, even though many other sources verified it. The footage represented as Sandy Hook is actually St. Rose of Lima School, also in Newtown, about a mile and a half away.
All news footage is time stamped for easy reference and identification, so there is no possibility that this was anything but a deliberate deception.
Question: Is it important to know that what you are seeing on a news broadcast is in fact what is being represented? Should Anderson Cooper be fired?
