James Tracy: In Solidarity with Alex Jones: US News Media Targeted Professor for Questioning Sandy Hook While Failing To Do Theirs – Fake News Indeed
I am a former Associate Professor of Journalism and Media Studies at Florida Atlantic University (FAU). In early 2013, I became the target of a smear campaign led by prominent news media after I questioned coverage of the 14 December 2012 Sandy Hook massacre. The media called on FAU to fire me because of my concerns. I therefore appreciate your clear condemnation of the Mainstream Media (MSM) for “fake news” where those posing as journalists spread falsehoods and propaganda.
As a student of news narratives for nearly two decades, I observed several contradictions and anomalies in the media’s presentation of the Sandy Hook event. Following the shooting, for example, emergency response protocols were abandoned and first responders were refused entry to school grounds. Authorities apprehended an alleged gunman but placed him in the front seatof a police car.
Editor’s Note: Independent researcher Dan Hennen has over the past few years published several informative video presentations delving into the 2014 death of filmmaker-activist David Crowley and his wife and daughter in what authorities deemed a “murder-suicide.” At the time of Crowley’s death he was working on a feature length film, Gray State, concerning a martial law scenario unfolding in the United States.
The cause of the Crowley family’s murder is still disputed. Hennen was featured as an “alt-right conspiracy theorist” in A Gray State, a 2017 Werner Herzog-produced documentary centering on filmmaker Crowley and the circumstances leading up to the alleged 2014 murder-suicide. The film also includes interviews with an array of the Crowleys’ family members, acquaintances and business associates.
A Gray State proceeds to intentionally overlook a vast amount of evidence suggesting foul play to bolster the official narrative that Crowley was in fact the sole culprit in the incident due to his personal ennui and estrangement from family and friends.The documentary’s director Erik Nelson deems Crowley “a core sample of American crazy.”
The video below is of particular interest to MHB as Hennen uses his run-in with one Eric Sayward as an entry point toward a detailed examination of this figure’s background, which includes military service and bids for public office alongside numerous criminal incidents, and apparent connections to Crowley.
MHB readers may recall this is the same Eric Sayward who is an associate of Dr. Kevin Barrett, and who Barrett recommended as a webmaster to MHB in late 2016. After MHB commissioned Sayward’s services the individual proceeded to sabotage MemoryHoleBlog.com by placing it on a malicious server, refusing to complete additional work as promised, and ceasing further communications with the blog’s editor. To this day Mr. Sayward will not respond to our queries and demands that the the site url to its rightful owner, suggesting such actions were more than mere negligence.
Dan Hennen reviews the strange and bizarre background of Eric J. Sayward. Mr. Sayward was connected to the Gray State, Sean Wright, the “Gerson for Congress” campaign and a noteworthy criminal. Should he also be added to the suspect list for the triple homicide of the Crowley family in Minnesota?
Change can often be a difficult thing. Most of us don’t like it. Yet it’s sometimes necessary if an individual or project are to grow. Since 2012 Memory Hole Blog has been parked at WordPress.com and housed on its servers. WordPress.com is the commercial arm of WordPress that provides rudimentary and convenient services for bloggers who don’t have the inclination to become involved in coding, etc.
This letter from Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) was sent to Florida Atlantic University administrators, FAU Board of Trustees members, and United Faculty of Florida officers inApril 2013, and republished at MHB on June 5, 2013 with FIRE’s permission. The legal observations in the correspondence are still relevant in the wake of the FAU President John Kelly administration’s January 6, 2016 termination of Tracy. As of January 31, 2016 FAU has not responded to FIRE’s letter below. FIRE has not publicly commented on Tracy’s termination .-MHB Admin.
