Add One More Thing to the List of ‘Things the Media Got Wrong About Newtown’
New York News & Features ^ | December 28, 2012 | Dan Amira

In the hours and days following the Newtown massacre, the media reported a metric [edited] of what were later discovered to be incorrect details, including the identity of the shooter, his mom's connection to the school, where she was killed, how Adam Lanza got into the building, and the weapons he used. Now we can add another one to the list: Adam Lanza was not wearing body armor, but "a fishing type vest, a jacket with a lot of pockets," according to a Connecticut state police spokesman.

It's not exactly clear where the misinformation started, but ABC News reported on the day of the shooting that Lanza was "wearing a bulletproof vest," according to "sources," and Fox 5 News's Ti-Hua Cheng "cited a law enforcement source that Lanza came into the school wearing black clothing over a bullet proof vest."

The media's inadvertent spreading of false information about the Newtown shooting is hardly without precedent. As author Dave Cullen told On the Media last week, much of what we initially heard about the Columbine massacre was flawed, too. "Two loner, outcast goths from the Trenchcoat Mafia went on a revenge slaying where they targeted jocks specifically to pay them back for years of relentless bullying," Cullen recalled. "Everything that I just said is wrong." Nevertheless, Cullen notes that "everyone, almost, still believes" that original narrative, as well as other details of the rampage — such as the girl who was supposedly killed for believing in God — that were later disproved.


TOPICS: Conspiracy
KEYWORDS: adam; banglist; guncontrol; hook; lanza; newtown; newtownmedia; sandy; sandyhook; sandyhookmedia; secondamendment
The irresponsible reporting by the media on the Sandy Hook massacre is deplorable. The media seems to have bent over backwards reporting myths as facts, most notably that Adam's mom worked at the school and that she loved those kids more than him so he got revenge. None of that is true. Or that there was an altercation at the school; That has yet to be proven and nothing more has been said about that.

If Adam's mother Nancy had plans to send him to a mental facility and he became enraged about that, why would he go to a school to massacre children? This makes no sense whatsoever.

I suppose the media will keep trying to throw motives for what he did at the wall until something sticks, but so far it appears the motive was to set the stage for a government-imposed gun ban or confiscation of our guns. If true, it appears this tragedy might be successful at doing just that.. Although unthinkable, the axiom "The ends justify the means" might well be in play here.

I suggest that the destruction of Adam's hard drive was done to protect the person or group which might have recruited Adam for this mission via electronic communication through his computer. Why else would he destroy his computer? It's not like he had a reputation to uphold.. He shattered that the moment he killed his own mother and innocent children so why was it imperative that he destroy his computer (if indeed it was him that did it)? Why the false motives and totally false information perpetrated by the media? To say Nancy was involved with the school when in fact she had no connection whatsoever is nothing short of pathetic journalism. The media seems to have a vested interest in fomenting anger against guns, behaving as a propaganda arm of the government to make gun bans a reality.

The media also hasn’t mentioned that the Bushmaster bought by Ms. Lanza is banned in CT and in NJ. If she took that to a range how come she got away with keeping a banned firearm? Someone should have seen it.

And I'm not sure which type of firearm is being looked at in his trunk here, but I agree it might be a Remington shotgun:

Are you sure about that? I think you can have an AR style rifle in CT, it just can’t have too many “evil features” like a flash hider, bayonet lug, barrel shroud, etc.

What was it then?

and would it have been on the ‘banned’ list, and thus subject to scrutiny at the local gun range?

I am not famous or infamous, but every single time I have been in a simple local news story, or personally knowledgeable about a news story, the media has gotten at least one fact wrong. Every time.

The rifle I saw being carried from the car by a policeman was a wooden stock long rifle with a scope on it. I took care to make note of it as he was carrying his weapon as well.

After the initial dump of one or two days of completely wrong information, there has been very little coming out of CT on Lanza.

There is something going on but I suggest a cover-up more than a conspiracy. A cover-up that might hurt gun control efforts.

CT's Assault Weapon Law is the same law that DiFi wants to push on the rest of us. No possession unless it was certified by police as possessed prior to July 1993. Cannot be transferred to anyone other than a licenced dealer.

Anything with the name "Bushmaster" on it is on the no-no list, regardless of evil features. Here's a summary of CT's law from the NRA-ILA:

“ASSAULT WEAPONS”
No person shall possess any “assault weapon” unless that person possessed that firearm before October 1, 1993 and received a certificate of possession from the Connecticut State Police prior to July 1994. The commissioner of public safety shall maintain a file of all certificates of transfer at the central office.

No assault weapon may be sold or transferred to any person other than to a licensed gun dealer, or any individual who arranged in advance to relinquish it to a police department or the department of public safety, or by bequest or intestate succession. Any person who obtains title to an assault weapon for which a certificate of possession has been issued by bequest or intestate succession shall, within 90 days of obtaining title, apply to the department of public safety for a certificate of possession, render the weapon inoperable, sell the weapon to a licensed gun dealer, or remove the weapon from the state. Any person who moves into the state in lawful possession of an assault weapon shall, within 90 days, either render it permanently inoperable, sell it to a licensed gun dealer, or remove it from the state.

A person who has been issued a certificate of possession of an assault weapon may possess it only under the following conditions:
•At the person’s residence, place of business or other property owned by that person, or on property owned by another with the owner’s express permission;
•While on the premises of a target range of a public or private club or organization organized for the purpose of practicing shooting at targets;
•While on a target range which holds a regulatory or business license for the purpose of practicing shooting at that target range;
•While on the premises of a licensed shooting club;
•While attending any exhibition, display or educational project which is about firearms and which is sponsored by, conducted under the auspices of, or approved by a law enforcement agency or a nationally or state recognized entity that fosters proficiency in, or promotes education about, firearms; or
•While transporting the assault weapon between any of the places mentioned above, or to any licensed gun dealer, for servicing or repair, provided the assault weapon is unloaded, kept in the trunk of such vehicle or in a case or other container which is inaccessible to the operator of or any passenger in such vehicle.

The theft of a lawfully possessed assault weapon must be reported to the police within 72 hours of discovery.

I remember that day. Where I work we have several TVs through the building all on different news channels. Depending on where you were in the building, people had totally different information on what was happening. Were there 2 shooters or 1, was an accomplice in the woods scoping out the school, his mom was a teacher at the school….goes on and on. Our media is terrible.

Are you telling us the media was wrong? I noticed the examiner crawfished on the wounds on the other victims.

CT does indeed ban those rabid butt ugly rifles that seem to go on killing sprees. BTW, if she owned it legally it wasn’t an assault weapon as defined by CT. Freepers need to investigate this.

Correction: You may inherit a previously certified pre-1993 Assault Weapon, but you may not sell it to anyone other than an FFL. DiFi would ban all transfers, including by bequeath.

Has anyone seen any additional information about the reported alleged disagreement that Lanza had with 4 male Sandy Hook school employees the day prior to the shooting? Was that information accurate? Supposedly he killed 3 of those employees, but one was not at the school on the day of the shooting. He, obviously, would know what what went on and could shed light on why this may have happened.

actually there was a girl shot (but survived) after she said she believed in God at Columbine.

It wasn’t the two protestant girls who were claimed by many to have said it, though, but another girl, a Catholic, in a different location who was praying and the shooters taunted her if she believed in God and she said she did, so they shot her with a shotgun...

Since she was in ICU when the story came out, no one identified her as the girl...and she verified the story when she recovered, but didn’t go around bragging about it...and by the time her story came out, the press was busy trying to debunk the first story and ridicule Christians they didn’t bother to print the real story. The press also didn’t print that the videos of the killers stated they hated Christians and even named one of the girls who they later shot, because she was Christian.

Someone needs to follow up on the Bushmaster. She was from New England someplace. I had the impression from the media that she may have bought it. Didn’t one report mention her talking about her guns with her friends?

If the Bushmaster was not an assault rifle under CT law, that needs to be put out on the internet. If it was a banned firearm under CT law, that needs to be put out there too.

I agree - I’m a writer and I’ve worked in media and with people who are famous, and the number of gratuitous errors every single time are just astonishing. I have also been quoted as a source, and they mangle that too. I have learned to never do what Nixon did, when he said “I am not a crook.” Because all they hear is the word that you are saying that you are not. (He should have said,” these accusations against me are completely unfounded.”)
I would add that journalists are uneducated and ignorant in a way that’s difficult to imagine if you don’t see them close up. And add to that, shameless. They don’t care when they get things wrong.

The mind of the msm:

a handgun, rifle, prop rifle or an umbrella = fully automatic assault weapon
a fishing vest = bullet proof armor
black shirt or jacket = far right winged conservative gang colors
two or more guns = an arsenal
a registered gun owner = scary survivalist
a prepper = a selfish hoarder
a gun shop = more dangerous to children on their way to school than a porn shop

“AR-15” style is irrelevant. Was or was not the Bushmaster an assault rife as defined by CT or the by federal government previously. If it was, it was illegal in CT. If it wasn’t the media was wrong in calling it an assault rifle as was everyone else that jumped on the bandwagon.

Either way there’s an important point that needs to be put out to the public. If was an assault rifle it was illegal in CT. If it wasn’t the media was wrong. Either way someone needs to be kicked in the balls until they understand.

When these seemingly unexplainable mass murders happen I sometimes wonder what the current state of the art is in “programming” someone to commit a horrendous act like this. Can it be done? Does anyone out there have any knowledge on this subject?

There is no "he" since it was women who were shot. The superintendant said he didn't know anything about a confrontation but then he might not have known about it and we haven't heard any of the other teachers mention it. Some reporters claim it happened at school and others claim it happened at the gun store the day before. Problem with the gun store story is that Lanza was supposedly at the gun store the previous week. We also haven't heard about it from any gun store employee or the wounded teacher. I'm chalking any confrontation up to more msm bs. I'm also chalking all the mom's connection to the school as bs as well as any lib pansy speak about bad feelings he had from his school days. As mental as he was, he wasn't stupid. He knew full well that the school was a freak's gun free soft target wonderland with little innocent targets who couldn't fight back and that this would put his name down in history. Same as that freak who shot the firemen a couple days ago, because he wanted to.

There were survivors and witnesses at Newtown. How can we go from “2 handguns were used, and a .223 was taken from the trunk of his car” to “the .223 was used for most of the shooting”? How on EARTH does that get changed without anyone asking questions?

The medical examiner said that the bodies he checked were shot with a .223. He examined about half of the victims. It’s unclear whether Lanza left the Bushmaster or the shotgun in the trunk of the car from the different ,edia reports.

We know he took two pistols and some kind of long gun into the school. My guess is some of the bullets hit the walls. If the walls are concrete block a .223 may have penetrated. I don’t think a 9mm would. Anyone who saw the scene afterwards should have seen clues as to what was used.

The police should know the difference between a 9mm casing and a .223. We need to reach out as in friend to friend to friend ... to try and get info from someone that was in that school afterwards.

Someone also had to clean up and possibly patch and paint walls. They would also know what happened or be able to describe the scene so that some knowledgeable about ballistics would have a clue. We need to start digging.

How?

...a phone call would do it. The absence of any record that shows which guns were registered to Mrs. Lanza makes for a lack of evidence, doesn’t it.

Not that evidence is ever planted or anything...or even fabricated out of whole cloth to suit an agenda...like 27 people vs. near complete confiscation of guns...

"4 male Sandy Hook school employees"

What? Like most schools Sandy Hook apparently didn't hire males.. Sounds like a prerequisite for employment was being female. 3 of the alleged 4 in the argument with Lanza were killed. The sole survivor hasn't said anything yet about an alleged argument. Probably just the media grabbing at straws trying to provide cover in fomenting a motive for Adam when all along this was indeed a 'false flag' possibly perpetrated by foreign players.. Just like 9/11, instigated by a man in Afghanistan. Could very well be a similar terrorist attack using an American citizen who was quite eager to protect their identity by destroying the one link to them; his computer.

And what a coincidence.. Nancy Lanza is dead, so we don’t know WHO the guns belonged to, or if her safe was ever really opened, or if it was Adam that killed her, or if it was really Adam that destroyed his computer. The STANK from this event so conveniently timed to primer the start of 0bama’s second term reeks of putrid vile vomit.

December 14th is the anniversary of..........

Uthman’s ascent as (the 3rd) caliph of the Rashidun.
the death of George Washington
the British recognition of an independent Iraq

and now

the killings of Sandy Hook.

The Muslim Brotherhood, CPUSA, William Ayres’ and Dohrn’s Weather Underground, the IRGC, CAIR and the NOI & affiliate NBPP must be pleased. All that and ruining or dampening Christmas for many, too.

These people are committed. Understand what that means. This is not a game.

Based on the info at the link the Bushmaster used in the Newtown killing IS NOT an assault rifle since it was legal to own in CT. Someone need to shove that fact up the media’s ass.

Supposedly he had a couple of rifles in the car, but took the AR-15 and two handguns in the school with him.

Interesting link, thank you.. The pieces don’t fit, do they.. The worst possible thing happened that would cause maximum outrage against guns and gun owners yet most Americans don’t stop and think about how the massacre defies any logical motive other than to cause a climate against guns. I’m thinking the mastermind of this plot was a foreigner or foreign group, possibly Russian. The Breslan massacre comes to mind where a few hundred children were murdered.

Ct does not ban black semi auto rifles. They do ban magazine loaded black rifles with pistol grips that have common features of an M4 or M16, such as bayonet lug, flash suppressor, grenade launcher etc etc.

Investigators plan to interview a pair of adults wounded “in their lower extremities.” The hope is the two — whom authorities have not identified, though a parent last week said one was a vice principal at the school — could, “when it’s medically appropriate,” play a key role in helping to reconstruct what happened, said Vance.
