It just gets better and better:
While the focus on Orlando shooter Omar Mateen’s 911 transcripts is over what was included and what was not, and while the national media argue endlessly over the need for more gun control in the US - the most important aspect of the FBI supplied transcript seems to have gone virtually unnoticed. There’s no discussion of an actual shooting occurring inside of the Pulse nightclub.
While the report has a basic outline of “America’s largest mass shooting” it fails to account for any of the shootings said to have occurred within the Pulse nightclub, with no mention of individuals being shot at or reportedly shot at in the FBI’s official narrative. It’s as if they just left out the biggest piece of the puzzle.
This has become an all to common theme, as media press conference rituals shape a narrative within the first hours of a mass casualty event and even if that story turns out to be mostly false, the media runs with it anyway, whether or not law enforcement information and crime scene analysis belies the original narrative pushed by media. The most clear example of this happened during the aftermath of the WTC 1993 bombing, where major media outlets exposed it as an FBI run sting with their operators in control - yet still, media anchors called it an al-Qaeda led attack.
