    Although it may seem like a small, insignificant detail, the fact the VT killings are not the “largest domestic massacre in US history,” as the media tells us, says a lot about not only the laziness and shoddiness of corporate media journalists, but also the urgency of the effort to spin and pass off lies as truth, blow things out of proportion, and generally fear-monger in an attempt to kill off the Second Amendment.

    In 1927, in Bath Township, Michigan, school board member Andrew Kehoe, who was upset by a property tax that had been levied to fund the construction of a school building, blew up the Bath Consolidated School, killing 45 people and injuring 58, mostly grade school children. Like Cho Seung-Hui, Kehoe killed himself after accomplishing his dastardly deed. “As rescuers started gathering at the school, Kehoe drove up, stopped, and detonated a bomb inside his shrapnel-filled vehicle, killing himself and the school superintendent, and killing and injuring several others,” notes Wikipedia.

    In a now established pattern, the corporate media is working closely with the government to build the official story, never mind the inconsistencies, glaring omissions, and plain stupid explanations we are expected to accept as fact. If the Bath School disaster demonstrates anything, it is that the corporate media will omit certain facts in an effort to push the official version of events, as they did on September 11, 2001 and the years since. Now, closing in on six years out from that event, to question the official version is considered by many in the corporate media to be a form of treason and disrespect for the dead. In likewise fashion, to question or not sympathize with the victims of the VT incident is considered a punishable offense, as Colorado student Max Karson discovered soon after the event.

    If you accuse everyone of being involved in a conspiracy how can you miss the real ones? And how do all the false accusations make you look? I'm just asking.:confused:

    First of all I'm not accusing everyone of being involved in a conspiracy, if anyone is it's Kurt Nimmo and I'm not Kurt Nimmo. You hadn't even read my opinion on this Op Ed yet when you accused me of accusing everyone falsely, does that make you guilty of falsely accusing me? I'm just asking. :confused:

    Either the VT killings were the “largest domestic massacre in US history” or they weren't. Obviously they weren't, yet the corporate media keeps reporting them as such. Aren't you even a little curious as to how virtually all the journalists and talkingheads in the MSM could all make the same mistake?

    No I am not curious at all because at the end of the day it effects nothing. Are they wrong? Apparently. Is it conspiracy? Probably more along the lines of sensationalism to sell advertising and fill their coffers.

    The MSM omitting facts effects nothing...is that what you really believe??? You aren't even curious as to what other facts the MSM may have omitted in their past coverage of "the news"? For whatever "reason"? Is that what you are saying? :eek:

    You cannot find a quote of mine that reflects this.

    It does not reflect that I said "you accuse "everyone" falsely".

    I didn't ask what it does not reflect. Look again...this is what I asked.

    What it relfects is this. I dare say a majority of your posts or at least the threads that you start are related to conspiracy issues. I am with you about some of the NAU stuff but everything is not a conspiracy. Now you posted an exerpt from yet another Conspiracy theorist about something that has little to no meaning. What my post reflects it that you post these types of topics quite regualrly and after a while it is like "Here he goes again". It kills a certain amount of credibility. There4 just are not that many conspiracies int he world. And it is an overreaction to life. Not everything is a big deal.

    Okay that I can understand. Credibility? How much can a person really care about credibility if they believe the corporate media's omission of facts in their "news reports" is no big deal or means "little or nothing"? That's what I don't understand. Shouldn't everyone be held to the same standards to establish whether one is credible or not?

    I Have to disagree with you about there not being that many conspiracies in the world. Let's have a look at what it means to conspire.

    Conspire

    1 a : to join in a secret agreement to do an unlawful or wrongful act or an act which becomes unlawful as a result of the secret agreement <accused of conspiring to overthrow the government> b : [SIZE=-1]SCHEME[/SIZE]
    2 : to act in harmony toward a common end <circumstances conspired to defeat his efforts> Source

    To act in harmony to a common end. Now how many organisations can you name that fits that description? Do the people in your church conspire together to spread the (propaganda) gospel? Do republicans conspire together to defeat democrats or democrats republicans? I'd say the world is full of conspiracies.

    BTW, aren't you one of those that believe socialists are conspiring against "us" how about Al Gore and the greenies, aren't you one of those that believe they are conspiring against "us", or liberals, how about them liberals, aren't they conspiring against "us" or the ACLU, aren't they also conspiring against "us" and don't forget them democrats, they're definately conspiring against not only "us" but our troops and the whole of America too!

    How much credibilty should be awarded to a person who consistantly claims "they are conspiring against us" in one breath yet condemns the same from another in the next breath?

    There are many conspiracies going on in the world both past, present and future.

    Conspiracies to commit crime were common throughout the Bible. (See Joseph's brothers, see Absilom, see Christ's death, see the Jews that bound themselves together to kill Paul, even outside of the Bible but pertanant to it, William Tyndale was killed via a conspiracy and later the spirit of the same crew conspired to kill King James in the Gunpowder Plot). Yet, so many Christians scoff at the possibility of a conspiracy targeting Christ' people today?

    In the present, conspiracy is "one of the most commonly charged federal crimes" today. Often, folks will talk about how corrupt politicians are and how the media is likewise biased and corrupt. Yet, those same folks just can't bring themselves to believe that these corrupt individuals would act in concert to promote their corruption?
