Ben Swann, a television news journalist who has been highly regarded across ideological lines, has raised questions about three different mass shooting incidents, holding that multiple eyewitness accounts conflict with law enforcement narratives.
Swann calls for the release of the outside video capturing the entrances of the Aurora theater, which was the scene of the "Batman" shooting, as well as the video capturing the main entrance of Sandy Hook Elementary School. Swann says police must begin to prove what they say is true in order to settle important questions.
After beginning his journalistism career in El Paso, TX, Swann won an Edward R. Murrow Award and two Lone Star Emmy Awards. He recently specialized in covering the 2012 GOP presidential primaries. Swann is the host of the popular Fox 19 Cincinnati fact-checking segment Reality Check. Prior to moving onto Reality Check Swann anchored the evening news at KFOX in El Paso.
In his Jan. 3, 2013 broadcast of Full Disclosure, Swann says the shootings in Aurora, CO and at the Sikh temple in Wisconsin are marked by corroborating eyewitness evidence of multiple shooters, and that it is up to police to put to rest such speculation. In the broadcast Swann runs video of multiple eyewitness interviews.
