Despite the fact that the mainstream media got key facts wrong in early reporting

Facebook is suspending user accounts that question the official
narrative behind the Sandy Hook school massacre, following a warning by
Connecticut State Police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance that
“misinformation” posted on social media sites could result in
An image posted
in the aftermath of the shootings that questioned whether “a clumsy
20-year-old autistic kid” could have pulled off the murders of 26 people
was deleted and the user’s account hit with a three day suspension.
“I was informed the reason for this punishment was the result of a meme I had shared,” writes the editor of SecretsOfTheFed.com.
“Facebook told me it “…violates Facebook’s Statement of Rights and
Responsibilities”. I was further warned that “If you continue to abuse
Facebook’s features, your account could be permanently disabled.”
On Saturday, Connecticut state police warned that people posting “misinformation” on social media websites would be “investigated and prosecuted.”
However, this threat could apply to the vast majority of the
mainstream media, who in their haste to get out ahead of the story
reported numerous details that soon turned out to be completely
- It was initially reported that Adam Lanza’s mother, the first victim of the rampage, was a teacher at the school, which was not true.
- It was initially reported that Lanza had also killed his father, which was not true.
- It was initially reported that the culprit behind the massacre was Ryan Lanza, Adam Lanza’s brother, which was not true.
- Initial reports that a “second gunman” arrested in the woods behind the school was involved in the massacre were later dropped without explanation.
Given that most of the “misinformation” about the shooting came from
corporate media sources, the fact that Facebook is punishing users for
asking questions about the proper sequence of events – essentially
labeling such activity a thought crime – is a worrying development.
As we have previously highlighted,
Facebook occasionally deletes images and posts that it claims violate
“Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities,” yet constitute
little more than political conjecture or a healthy skepticism of
official narratives on current events.
In September 2011, Infowars reporter Darrin McBreen was told by Facebook staff not to voice his political opinion on the social networking website.
Responding to comments McBreen had made about off-grid preppers being
treated as criminals, the “Facebook Team” wrote, “Be careful making
about making political statements on facebook,” adding, “Facebook is
about building relationships not a platform for your political
viewpoint. Don’t antagonize your base. Be careful and congnizat (sic) of
what you are preaching.”
