James Tracy or Sibel Edmonds. SRY there is no choice!   Leave a comment

The marked alignment of those information purveyors called mainstream media has a significant value. Most of the folks have a ‘trusted source’ to which we cede our responsibilities to really know. That is lifes wedge issue. Trust. Most of us are not very responsible in our choice.
Please watch as Sibel Edmonds makes it clear.

I was under the impression that the limelight suddenly shifted to Manti Te’o’s hoax girlfriend and Lance Armstrong’s revelations on Oprah. As I was suggesting that Sandy Hook might have been a “hoax,” very real (yet insignificant) examples come to light. Wouldn’t this encourage people to look at news media more critically? Your observations are also reasonable, yet as my site’s own stats suggest there were far more people relying on the mass media’s interpretation of my remarks than actually reading my articles to find out what I actually wrote. Such media also realize the proven formula of smearing an individual and moving on before a serious discussion can ensue, assuming their audiences are inclined toward such.

The array of media also appeared to be strategic in terms of intended audience and sensationalistic effect–CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, Daily Mail, Yahoo News, local evening news, Inside Edition (which I never responded to) versus more “serious” outlets such as the New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, BBC. (NPR did address the story very briefly and Rick Stone from their local Miami affiliate WLRN wrote up what I thought was the fairest report on myself and the whole media frenzy.) BBC and Reuters contacted me but never followed up. To my knowledge one of the few more cerebral outlets that covered the “conspiracy theory professor” story very closely for a few weeks was the International Business Times. Limited intelligence hangout perhaps?
