Should Anderson Cooper be Fired Over CNN Sandy Hook Deception?

re story at Digital Journal: http://digitaljournal.com/article/341776

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?

CNN should go out of business but they will probably get a bailout too.

I agree. I attended the Iowa Straw Poll in August 2007.

When I saw the way the networks depicted the Ron Paul tent on the news, after attending the full day I was dumbfounded.

The first thing I did upon my return was to return my cable box. Haven't missed it a bit.

And $40/month * 12 * 5 = $2400 in my pocket (and not in theirs) as of last Sept. ;)

He should have been fired airing fake Syria coverage


But instead, they moved him out of that spotlight, gave him his own talk show until people slowly forgot about that incident and now they're slowly bringing him back.

Oh, yeah and because he is a gay man don't even think about criticizing him because you will be labelled a homophobe.

This story has legs and is spreading like wildfire

Sandy Hook has a much stronger emotional connection for Americans, and this should spark calls for Cooper's resignation.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Should have been fired

after the 2008 debate where he ignored Ron Paul for the entire McCain-Romney love-fest.

It was a sad display of disrespect and obvious bias.
Cooper is not a journalist - he is a puppet - can you fire a puppet?

Haven't watched CNN since.

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

And yet no one has suggested

a mass libertarian movement to buy out or start a new news organization. There are even groups out there working toward this and everyone here knows it's the only way to combat a corrupt news industry, yet not once has this been mentioned in these comments.




Fire the ENTIRE mainstream media....

The only way the criminal, corrupt, Zionist government can be overthrown is by overthrowing the complicit mainstream media and replacing them with real people...humans, not puppets... who will hold government accountable for their crimes rather than enabling and covering up those crimes.

Just how do you intend

to accomplish that. You're up against some very powerful people who've extorted wealth from the people on a major scale since your country was founded.

This 'zionist' conspiracy has to stop. Zionists are not in control of the US government. If they were the US would have already engaged in war with Iran? Zionists ultimately serves only one master and that is who?

You have to study history. Religious history and the numerous 'Orders' from ancient times. Here you will learn who the only enemy is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDrscByKEUQ

Our mutual enemy is very well organized and in full control of us all due to one single tool - the power to create 'money'. Take that power away from them and a global house of cards will collapse overnight and set you free.

In other words if you want to remove them from power you will have to come to terms with some not so 'popular' facts on this and numerous other internet forums.

Personally I can only guide you. What you do with that knowledge is entirely up to yourself.

The solution has been around for 45 years. It can be implemented tomorrow at almost zero cost. Yet, no one seems to want it. Humans seem to 'believe' that somehow if we just put some 'honest people' in the White House that will do the trick. But nothing could be further from the truth. There is a much simpler approach to this. But the solution will have to come from within. One has to stop denying facts just because they seem much to simple and no one we 'trust' have told us about them in proper context.

The person I'm the most impressed with is

The President. What a performance he gave in front of the cameras. They should nominate him for an Academy Award.

I didn't find him believable at all

Does he shed tears each time his drones kill children in Afghanistan?

Release the Sandy Hook video.

yep...he's more of an actor

yep...he's more of an actor than Ronald Reagan ever was.

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

Actor as in


Also Troubling To Me

...is the dead silence over at Fox News, a supposed competetor, regarding the Sandy Hook "tragedy". I fear they too are complicit. Where is our friend Andrew Napolitano? No tough questions from him?
How about John Stossel? He's an investigative reporter. Is he content with the Sandy Hook narrative as well?

All the national news reporters are totally controlled

- like pilots in the air force. They have to do what they are told. The owners of the news networks and the owners of the planes have and demand total control. The pilots and the national news reporters simply know whats expected of them, so they don't need whipping all the time. Helen Thomas stepped out of line, I guess.

From this excellent primer, on how the editor/owner control their newspaper - MASS MEDIA 101 or The How and Why of the DisInformation Age: http://www.aircrash.org/burnelli/med101.htm

"There is no need for ubiquitous supervision, just occasional intervention. The anticipation that superiors might disapprove of this or that story is usually enough to discourage a reporter from writing it, or an editor from assigning it. Many of the limitations placed on reporting come not from direct censorship but from self-censorship, from journalists who design their stories so as to anticipate complaints from superiors. This anticipatory avoidance makes direct intervention by owners a less frequent necessity and leaves the journalist with a greater feeling of autonomy than might be justified by the actual power relationship. "

What if he got fired and was

What if he got fired and was replace by....Piers?

If we can get a casualty like Cooper for playing fast and loose

with the truth, it casts an entirely different spin on questions about Sandy Hook in the public mind.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

I stopped watching CNN decades ago.

That's the poll that counts to me.
Chicken Noodle News.

Free includes debt-free!

Look At THIS

The Cuomo brothers need to be put in prison. Watch this bizarre interview Chris Cuomo conducts with a little Sandy Hook 'survivor'. It's straight out of "Twilight Zone". He leads her all the way through with the appropriate prompts, etc...
Coincidence that his brother passed NY's worst gun control legislation into law? Americans need to WTFU.


Scripted for mass deception - with 3 actors and 2 cameras

Also heavily edited. Watch the different light on his shoulders @ 2:08 and 2:10

This poll..

needs to be put up somewhere else. Not trying to hate on the forums at bodybuilding.com :)

(Personally, I just don't create accounts for a shit-ton of websites just to respond to a poll..)

I should add...

If this poll is posted someplace I don't have to create an account I will gladly cast my vote for FIRED!

CNN should be struck off

the airwaves, full stop. Syria Danny anyone?

Cooper deserves a promotion

He did his job as outlined by his boss(es). For that, he deserves kudos.

As the "customer" of CNN, their advertisers should be giving them kudos for grabbing even higher ratings by this sneaky, underhanded tactic.

As the "customer" of THOSE advertisers, we should be publicly organizing a boycott of them, not all combined (those don't work) but one-by-one and top-down. The message should be pull your ads or we'll pull your sales.

Then we walk back down the ladder...

The advertising company tells CNN to straighten up in a very public way or they'll pull their business.

CNN tells their minion reporter to get it right.

Should this not work to the end, go back to the "boycott the advertisers top-down" step and repeat with number 2.

Unfortunately, the population hasn't learned how to use the internet or the free market.

Who are CNN's prime-time advertisers anyway?

I know there are many but publicizing the biggest 2 or 3 might begin to put some pressure on. I'm sure they can take the hit financially, it's the bad PR they don't like.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

I don't know who they are.

I'm absolutely sure that DPers could find out if they wanted to.

Sadly, as with every other suggestion for actual action that would accomplish something, this site's members have exactly zero interest in doing anything but gossip about it.

In A Fair World

Almost EVERYONE in the media should be fired and jailed including the owners of the media companies.


It's highly important

that y'all vote for this stupid issue on bodybuilder.com

Too E@rly

It's likely Cooper deserves prison once the WHOLE truth comes out.
