VICE On Crisis Actors, Hoaxes, and Gun Control

This is always interesting:

Reminds me of all the Alex Jones rants about this sort of thing.  I watched a few of them, and there was definite confirmation bias so I lost interest.  On a related note, is Alex Jones still around and ranting? (nm I guess he is… he appears at 10min in this video).   Seems like he entirely vanished off the face of the internet since Trump got elected.  I imagine if Hillary got in, it would have been much better for his business haha

Man, I’m not saying David Hogg is a “Crisis Actor” but holy that kid isn’t very likable.

12:40 – *spits out my coffee all over the screen and my parent’s basement carpet* ALEX JONES MAKES $50M A YEAR?! 🤔 😭

14:20 – Damn, even Wolfgang is caked up.  Those have got to be 17ft+ ceilings in the crib.

14:49 – “Guns guns guns, it’s all about guns.  New legislation.  I think there has been so much misinformation given by the national news.  Now even the president of the United States calls them out as fake news.”  I’ll agree with him on that one.

17:01 – LOL David Hogg’s mother and her friends “went after” this man who threatened her online.  LOL at it being the most effective strategy.

19:20 – WHOA now that escalated quickly.  “No one came to this place you lying sack of shit government mf sellout bitch”.

21:15 – Holy they are gonna cap this guy.  He better chill.

Like Wolfgang said, it seems to me that the media again is to blame.  We are given SO MUCH information on all these massacres, even incredibly minute details.  Since we don’t have ALL the information (homeland security reasons, graphic violence reasons etc…) people are bound to pick it apart (given what they know) and poke holes in the story which they feel was fabricated.  I really don’t think a lot of these people could be convinced otherwise, unless they actually could walk through the scene, ID the victims themselves, and be next to the medical examiner who preforms the autopsy.

Thoughts?
