They could walk up to the school. I'm sure the police set up a perimeter at that point but reporters would still be able to take pictures (have you seen how awesome zoom lenses are these days?) and allowed to have been in the general area.

Because, all the world is a stage, and the men and women are but actors, playing many roles.

I do think Donald Trump would be interested. Seriously. You should get paid for your investigative work.

This case does NOT have endless unanswered questions, holes, inconsistencies. In fact, I have not even seen one list inconsistencies posted here by the people who are complaining. Certainly if the inaccuracies and inconsistencies in reporting were "endless" you could come up with just a few examples.

I didn't notice ray saying that "mainstream media" was her only source of news. Did you see her say that?
Well, considering I posted two very long lists of questions, I don't know what to tell ya.

Regarding Ray's comment, the whole conversation about the MSM was twisted from the begining and taken out of context. Ray has made some bizzare accusation (gun nut, RWNJ) directed at me that were based on nothing but his or her imagination so I'm not too concerned.

Really? They were all allowed to walk up to the school when they got there? So all reporters carry around expensive cameras super zoom lenses? Wow. I thought it was photo journalists who did that.

Did it ever occur to you all that maybe even "reporters" thought twice about photographing kids that age and plastering their pictures all over the place?

I think what is most offensive about this thread is that the whole story is about tiny little kids who were slaughtered, yet, some are trying to use this horrific event to attack the White House and the many, many various members of the media for their reaction to the violence inflicted by a gun. It's like trying to throw up a smoke screen to confuse people. It's all smoke and mirrors, and that's what makes it really offensive to most people at a gut level.

You have the right to question my questions. You also have the right to answer my questions. Furthermore, you have the right to say anything you absolutely desire to say to me - no matter how off topic or baseless. The question is why would you.

It bothers me that, instead of engaging in any type of civil dialogue, you & others have chosen to belittle and attack. It has been my experience that those who do the latter often lack anything of substance in regards to contributions to a conversation.

IOW, if the premises of statements put forth are so easy to debunk/answer, why not just do it and dispense with the nastiness?

How about a link to your two very long lists of questions? Did you cite the inconsistencies in reporting, or were these just questions you felt were not answered by the reporting?

I've seen no "bizzare" accusations from Ray toward you.

It is my opinion that it's best to gather news from multiple sources (including the mainstream media) if accuracy matters to you at all.
Firstly, I am not a "Dude." Secondly, YOU were the OP of the post in question. Thirdly, you have verbally sneered at the "mainstream media" and those who read/watch/listen to it in multiple posts. We, the sneerees, are curious about your sources of information. You discredit the veracity of the MM, so please tell us of these "multiple sources" from which you gather your more credible information.

I consider it a duty of citizenship, and I think we would all be in much better stead were more people to take that obligation more seriously.
