Thats a load of crap, no one here has the ability to suspend the 1st amendment for this story. There is a ton of hard evidence from this situation thanks in part to the overzealous media who converged on the place, as you pointed out in the op.
But, that is also what fuels the fire in regards to possible theories behind what happened. Why put out an essential gag order on media? Because they leaked stuff that you can't deny but you can't explain away - like the second shooter/suspect?
What happened to the witnesses saying they saw the second guy? Why no more reports from them demanding to know what happened to that guy and who was he? The media is shifting the narrative and we're just supposed to forget what has already been reported and corroborated by witnesses?
How do you shut those people up who saw him and heard what he said while being handcuffed and taken away???
By not covering them. See the CCW story from the Oregon shooting.
