Anderson Cooper trying to shut down Sandy Hook conspiracy theories
Prof. James Tracy has become the focal point for the Sandy Hook conspiracy theories and Anderson Cooper seems to be the primary journalist who is refuting his claims. Cooper is trying to get Prof. Tracy into an interview, which would be great, but Tracy seems to be dodging it at the time. While I praise Cooper for addressing the conspiracy theories (which is more than most mainstream media types would bother to do), he seems to be a little bit condescending in the way he does it. He is defending the media, as if they never get it wrong, which you can safely assume is an inaccurate idea.
Look at Fox News. They have the top 10 rated news programs, generally every year. Yet they have managed to promote this idea that there is a liberal media bias and we are "inundated" with news from MSNBC, CBS, NBC, etc. While I think ALL of the news media organizations are full of crap (they are out there to make a profit, and they’re just giving us what we want; so it’s partially our fault), Fox is by far the worst offender, by making people believe that everyone is watching these “liberal” media channels and Fox is the “underdog” somehow. Riiiiight. On top of that, most of Fox “News” shows are actually labeled as “entertainment” shows, so they don’t have to worry about the accountability of lying. I’m not defending CNN, MSNBC, etc. ‘cuz I think they’re all worried about the bottom line of profit, and most are probably in the Illuminati pockets to push whatever crap they want us to believe, but Fox is definitely not the voice of the people as they pretend to be.
