The following is a letter originally sent to the editor of Vail Daily concerning the unusual coverage of the Sandy Hook massacre. It never quite saw the light of day. Located in Avon Colorado, the Vail Daily is a small town paper with a staggering amount of every day hard copy readers and an online version read internationally.
I was once a columnist and frequent letter to the editor contributor. I wanted to respond to a piece that mentioned Sandy Hook and argued the event was a good reason not to over turn Colorado’s new bullet clip size limitation law. I was censored by the editor who had always published my letters. He thought it was ridiculous I didn’t buy the Sandy Hook Hoax. In his view, everybody knows it happened because it was “on the news!” and TV news would never be part of a hoax.-DL
