Making ‘The Life of Adam’

This week filmmaker and media activist Peter Klein returns to the program to discuss the creation of the latest feature-length documentary production, The Life of Adam, produced by Klein and Independent Media Solidarity, and released on December 28, 2015.

mhb_loa2Founded in 2014, IMS includes several dozen independent researchers and media producers, several of whom contributed directly to the new film. In November 2014 Klein and IMS released We Need to Talk About Sandy Hook, which has since received in excess of 3 million online views, despite an intense campaign to expunge the film from YouTube and Vimeo platforms via fraudulent copyright infringement claims.

Chronicle of Higher Ed: “Tenured Truther Shown the Door”

“Academic Freedom Has Limits. Where They Are Isn’t Always Clear.”

Kevin Carey
Chronicle of Higher Education

[Editor’s Note: One would think the Chronicle of Higher Education might get its facts right, particularly given its readership. However, author Kevin Carey, “director of the education-policy program at New America,” repeats the corporate media falsehood that this author sent Lenny and Veronique Pozner a certified letter out-of-the-blue “demand[ing] proof that their son had ever been alive.” In fact, the letter was in response to Lenny Pozner’s harassive March 22, 2015 copyright infringement claim filed against Memory Hole Blog, where I requested evidence that Pozner was the rightful owner of the image in question–indeed, the same image that emerged following a school massacre in Peshawar Pakistan in December 2014 purporting to be one of the decedents! This request was also made following Pozner’s many dubious copyright claims against alternative media outlets that I contended amount to a muzzle on First Amendment-protected free speech–the same constitutional safeguard showboated by so many major media outlets, including the Chronicle.

Subsequent evidence has emerged suggesting that Pozner has led an online harassment and stalking campaign against citizens and alternative media who’ve attempted to publicly question and research the Sandy Hook School massacre. Mainstream media outlets have turned a blind eye to this pattern of likely criminal activity. -JFT]

The New York Times Publishes Sandy Hook Disinformation and Propaganda

Prof. Jim Fetzer

In an astonishing example of the duplicity of the American media, The New York Times–which is our nation’s newspaper of record–which means that it records the “official history” of the United States–has presented a transparent demonstration of its duplicity and mendacity by publishing an article about the firing of Florida Atlantic University professor James Tracy, which excludes what he himself has said about his case and why nytimesthe firing was legally unjustifiable and morally wrong.

The article, “Florida Professor Who Cast Doubt on Mass Shootings is Fired“, The New York Times (6 January 2016) by Lizette Alvarez, which builds the case for Tracy having harassed the Pozners–when the truth was precisely the opposite–was so sloppily done that the paper has had to publish a clarification (in fine print at the end) for reporting that Lenny Pozner had been fired rather than James Tracy. The author embeds a link to the Sandy Hook Hoax Facebook page, where Tracy lays why his actions have been directed at protecting the public interest, which The Times ignores:

The De-Authorization of James F. Tracy

Submitted by Toni King

It took two weeks for the Sun-Sentinel newspaper to announce that James Tracy had stirred up a controversy. In the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary mass shooting incident, the academic had published a series of articles describing the neglect of major media to address discrepancies in their own reporting, as well as the appearance of their collusion with law enforcement and federal agencies in carefully managing a narrative that focused away from journalistic investigation. Tracy’s writings gathered conspiracy-400x264attention from independent researchers, but were little noticed elsewhere until, singularly, the Sun-Sentinel newspaper was roused to mount an exception to the Professor’s critique.

The problem for the Broward/Palm Beach counties publication was that Tracy, a PhD whose areas of expertise include media and communication studies, was the kind of authority the newspaper was accustomed to running to when it wanted to shore up its own credibility. What to do? Deciding to ignore Tracy’s observations helped the newspaper slip past the need to justify its own position, and move on to the only option left to it: discredit the man himself.

Florida Atlantic University Student Expelled for Social Media Post

Florida Atlantic University has expelled an 18-year-old student because of a post he made on the Yik Yak smartphone application warning of a potential mass shooting on the school’s Boca Raton campus.

Emeil Tavon Stewart, a freshman from Fort Meyers, wrote at 7:00PM Tuesday, September 8: “My friend just said he shooting up the breezeway and texted me a pic of a gun idk if he jokin.”

Stewart informed WPTV-NewsChannel 5 that he overheard an unidentified party on campus mention “shooting” and “breeze way” (the campus’ central walkway). Stewart says he was reluctant to contact campus police without more solid “evidence,” and thus attempted to inform students and gauge their response via social media.
