Straight away lets address an issue that is very important in what follows: Eyewitness evidence is often very unreliable and hearsay evidence is often very unreliable.
Numerous biological, psychological, and sociological processes can distort both perception and its verbal translation. There are individual differences among persons that affect their ability to accurately gather and report information, and circumstances, such as stress and alarm, can operate either alone or in conjunction with those differences to compromise the validity of witness statements.
And yet, there is no gainsaying the fact that even broken clocks are right twice a day.
Furthermore, there is very little room to contest the notion that what ends up being the MSM/government official version of events is often riddled with inaccuracies, whether those inaccuracies are attributable to underreporting, the failure to report, how matters are framed, negligence, and so on.
In short, government and media have been known to get final narratives wrong, whether intentionally or otherwise. Clearly, a plethora of instances of this could be adduced, but doing so would be tedious. If, at this point, youre someone who thinks that media and government are basically fully honest, you probably arent very interested in evidence that theyre often not.

All these mass killers gunman are friggin liberals. We ought to outlaw liberals and deport them to Bosnia or Iraq.
It’s the psych drugs.
That’s also a huge factor in the military suicides.
Rush was VERY interesting when the NFL painkiller story broke. He was told that it will go down the memory hole because the NFL and drug companies are huge $$$ makers for the networks.
Same with the psych drugs. Plus, if you speak out against drugging people, you are smeared as a Scientologist or something.
John F. Kerry said in 2004, while running for President of the United States of America, that we would just have to ACCEPT a certain nuisance level of terrorism in the world (i.e,, the war on terror MUST come to an end).
Funny how at every rampage killing (even those that use SUVs and knives) they call for a war on guns (yet are silent over President Obama arming narcoterrorists in Mexico and jihadist rebels in Syria).
Having decent people in leadership positions makes a difference. Bush was wrong on so many things, but he was decent.
Yep, that’s where it’s from.
Limousine lefties with high income parents.
Much more effective than a nuke!
Doesn’t the professor’s analysis require that dice have memories?
