Former El Paso television news anchor Ben Swann is taking national heat for a report that has gone viral questioning whether the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut was really the work of a lone gunman.
Swann, who works for WXIX-TV in Cincinnati, also raised questions whether only one shooter was involved in the massacres at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., and a Sikh temple in Wisconsin.
Cincinnati.com reported that Swann’s video is part of a news series titled “Full Disclosure” on Swann’s YouTube channel. The video has been viewed more than 110,000 times since being posted online two weeks ago.
Swann told Cincinnati.com that he was only doing his job as a journalist and raising questions about the killings.
Before taking the job for the Fox affiliate in Cincinnati, Swann was the main anchor at Channel 9-KTSM from March 2008 to November 2010.
Prior to working for KTSM, Swann, who was raised in El Paso, was an anchor for Channel 14-KFOX and had also worked for Channel 7-KVIA.
