Real News. Real Funny.

  • fark this guy, and fark anybody who buys into his shiat.
  • When questioned about his theories by a local CBS12 news reporter, Tracy responded, "The whole country mourned about Sandy Hook, but yet again the investigation that journalistic institutions should have carried out never took place, in my opinion."

    He sounds very much like the journalistic version of a few of my fellow Philosophy students in college, who thought all you needed to be a philosopher was to just ask "why" about everything.

    But worse and inhuman.
  • So all those grieving parents were...what? paid actors?  and all the Funerals just elaborate shams where people who pretended to be the devastated friends and relatives where just putting on a show?

    This goes beyond nutty conspiracy theorist into serious mental illness territory.  It reminds me of the psychological condition where people wake up one day  and sincerely believe that everyone they know and love have been replaced by exact android duplicates or something/

    As with most conspiracists, he suffers from severe cognitive dissonance.  Perhaps he should have taken some Philosophy classes while at Iowa.

    Or, he could just be an attention whoring asshole like Alex Jones.
  • Give the guy some slack. He was in Ghost Busters for Repetes sake.
  • First amendment.

    He can say anything he wants. If you don't like it. Don't read it.
  • 'The wind rustles through an open mind.'
  • TFA seems to leave out whether Prof. Tracy has visited Sandy Hook himself to conduct an investigation.

    Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from criticism.
  • He sounds knowledgeable. I can't wait to see when his two volume set on the Holocaust hoax comes out.
  • His blog, with 222 followers

    Yup. It sucks.

    Number one, that's not what the First Amendment says. The First Amendment says "You are free to read anything and respond with mockery." Number two, and more importantly, the First Amendment applies only to the government and to certain government-funded or -controlled organizations. Florida Atlantic University may well be such an institution if it is a state institution or accepts government money, but Fark, Inc. certainly is not such an institution.
  • Seconding mental illness. We really need to get some sort of early detection system in place so we can catch and treat these people before they become right-wing radio personalities and speakers of the house.

    I'm glad I did my under-graduate degree somewhere where the professors were pretty dead set against the notion of needlessly asking "Why?" and holding students to a degree of rigour. On the other hand, I've spent the last ten years or so learning that quite a few of them could have used remedial education in the courses they taught... Goddamnit, why aren't professors all-knowing, transcendent gods rather than mere human meat?

    I think he's probably the Bill Frist of journalism.
  • The school is changing it's motto to "Study it out at Florida Atlantic University

  • I initially read the headline as "Sandy denier", thinking the guy was denying Hurricane Sandy ever occurred.

    I was very much "dafuq?"

    Are you kidding? Detection of this order should be sufficient reason to put these people on the air for our amusement!
  • The news school motto is "Study it Out at Florida Atlantic University"
  • He must be tenured. Either that, or he is working for the board of regents who want students with, shall we say, unique perceptions of current events.

    If he's not tenured, he will probably be fired.

    Hmm. Three twos.

    There's may be some significance to this number. I'm not accusing him of anything, I'm just asking questions.

    So you obviously don't like the first amendment, since you clearly haven't read it.
  • Wanted for questioning...
