How do you get "conspiracy" out of any of that?
I posted what was officially reported as known facts, which was fairly vague, compared to the absurd crap that the media was speculating and outright making up, as the story was unfolding. As to point out how ridiculous media coverage is. And I also pointed out a few things that I found odd and even humorous about the whole thing. At no point did I jump to any conclusions about a "conspiracy".
For all the media coverage of things like this and Sandy Hook are worth, you might as well just give the cameras and mic to a group of old ladies. That's what it reminds me of: a fire truck stops at the Smith house and all the old ladies are in a group, on Edna's lawn, gossiping about what's going on. I heard John has been having heart trouble. I heard he's having an affair. I'll bet his grandson was playing with matches again. I'll bet that damn dog of his, bit someone. I heard his daughter is on drugs, probably an overdose. I'll bet his stove was leaking.
That's what the news is to me. Last night was a perfect example.
BTW, I purposely watched hours of CNN's live coverage last night. At one point, the son of the woman who owns the property was on the air, live. He said it was a rental property and it was vacant. He also said that law enforcement had just been to the property, 2 days prior. When you consider the fact that Dorner stole a vehicle, was spotted by a fish and game officer, reported, stopped by a roadblock, abandoned the vehicle and fled into the woods, it just seemed odd that he found his way to an abandoned cabin that had just been searched 2 days prior, in a totally random scenario. Maybe there's a perfectly good explanation. Maybe it was a total coincidence. I just said it was odd. Then again, I notice little oddities like that, because I don't get caught up in the drama and gossip. Did you watch hours of the live coverage and make any of the same observations? Or, did you watch 2 min of it on your local news station and call me a "conspiracy theorist"?
