While the Sandy Hook Conspiracies have been thoroughly debunked, (and thank you for reading) there has been a resurgence of right-wing sites disputing… reality. There really is no other way to say it at this point. They are disputing facts and evidence; they don’t believe in reality.
On December 15th, Pete Williams of NBC filed a report that erroneously said that the gunman had four handguns at Sandy Hook. Keep in mind that this originally aired on DECEMBER 15th
Several “truther” sites are reposting this video NOW, more than a month after the shooting, and reporting it as “breaking news.”
Since most of these “Patriots” barely passed high school let alone earned a degree in journalism, they do not realize the error of their ways. The current state of the 24-hour news cycle is such that the emphasis is on getting the story out FIRST, and not always with the most complete or accurate information. NBC has subsequently reported the same thing that every other media outlet also has, including the accurate number of guns. These reports line up with the medical examiner’s report, police report, forensic report, eyewitness report, ballistic report – Pretty much every report not named “Drudge.”
The conspiracy theorists made so much noise that Connecticut State Police (and NBC) had to re-release their findings “to eliminate any misinformation or confusion.””
So strike NBC from your Truther rhetoric. You’ll just have to get by thinking that Sandy Hook was a massive conspiracy to kill children and take away your guns by the Federal Government, local law enforcement, parents of the children, (I’m sorry, I meant actors) FEMA, and the “lamestream media.”
Otherwise, you’d have to face reality – And we KNOW you aren’t having that!
