A Prof. claims that the Newtown tragedy didn't happen as it was reported by the media. On Jan. 8, Radar Online reported that a Florida Atlantic University communications professor named James Tracy has suggested that the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School last month was actually a planned hoax put in to play by the Obama administration.
"As documents relating to the Sandy Hook shooting continue to be assessed and interpreted by independent researchers, there is a growing awareness that the media coverage of the massacre of 26 children and adults was intended primarily for public consumption to further larger political ends," Prof. Tracy wrote on his blog, memoryholeblog.com.
The Prof. who claimed Newtown didn't happen the way that people believe it did says that the Obama administration planned the hoax to sway people's opinions about gun control -- a hot topic in today's society. Tracy feels that there was a "political agenda" behind the shooting and he urges people to look at the event more critically.
"While it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquire whether the Sandy Hook shooting ever took place -- at least in the way law enforcement authorities and the nation's news media have described," Prof. Tracy added. While some people are calling the professor "crazy," others are actually agreeing with him.
Prof. Tracy claims that Newtown didn't happen the way it "did" but thousands of people witnessed the aftermath. Could the government pull off something so huge?
