PBS Defies Basic Journalistic Standards to Push Sandy Hook Official Narrative

Updated 7/2/13

This past week the Public Broadcasting Service presented its viewership with a flurry of reportage and commentary on the Newtown tragedy, taking special care to closely associate the incident with the issues of gun control, mental health, and school safety.
