Professor won't back down from Newtown massacre conspiracy theory
By Claudine Zap | The Lookout
A media professor at Florida Atlantic University who is questioning the Sandy Hook massacre has caused controversy with his conspiracy claims.
James Tracy, who writes a personal blog about conspiracy theories, believes the events that unfolded at Sandy Hook did not happen as reported.
The professor writes on his blog, Memory Hole, "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." He suggests that there were multiple shooters and that the number of dead is incorrect. The blog post was published on the Global Research site, where it caught the attention of the Web.
The academic, who is known for his conspiracy theories on 9/11 and the Oklahoma bombing, believes--as he claims on his blog and recently stated on a radio show--that trained "crisis actors" may have been employed by the Obama administration to shape public opinion on gun control.
