College Insurrection reported on the first college professor to suggest a conspiracy was behind the Newtown shooting. Now, according to the College Fix, a second college professor has come forward with some new crazy theory.
Second Professor Claims Newtown School Shooting-Government Conspiracy Theories
This week, the Sun Sentinel reported that a Florida Atlantic University communications professor also known for conspiracy theories argued that the massacre “did not happen as reported — or may not have happened at all.”
James Tracy claimed in radio interviews and on his blog that “trained ‘crisis actors’ may have been employed by the Obama administration in an effort to shape public opinion in favor of the event’s true purpose: gun control,” the paper reported:
“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,” writes Tracy, a tenured associate professor of media history at FAU and a former union leader.
In another post, he says, “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.”
