It was the worst mass-shooting in American history, and despite a curious public hungry for answers, the entire tragedy remains shrouded in mystery — and the mainstream media seems intent on keeping it that way.
The Las Vegas shooting, which left 58 dead and 546 injured, should remain as a top news story — if only because of how many questions remain unanswered.
But then again, given the massive inconsistencies in the case — from the official timeline changing multiple times to the coincidental deaths of 4 witnesses — maybe they WANT the story to go away.
Here Are The Top 10 Mysteries That Could Be Scaring Away The Media:
Whereas the mainstream media seemed complacent as the inconsistencies mounted, it took a rogue independent journalist to ask tough questions at one of the LVMPD’s press conferences:
“Please stop asking your question.” — @Sheriff_LVMPD , after I asked him about the @FBI timeline.

2. Just a week before the mass shooting, the alleged shooter Stephen Paddock wired $100,000 to an account in the Philippines.
3. Paddock’s hard drive was missing from his laptop, according to investigators who searched his hotel room.
4. The shooter had also apparently taken multiple cruises to destinations in the Middle East.
5. It has now been confirmed by authorities — after being denied for a month — that an officer actually fired his gun into Stephen’s hotel room, despite claims that Paddock killed himself before police broke down his door.
6. Jesus Campos, a security guard at the hotel, was alleged to have been shot in the leg while Paddock was still alive. However, a spokesperson for the clinic Jesus was treated at said they had no record of treating him.
7. Even more mysteriously, Jesus had been scheduled for multiple TV interviews after the shooting, but abruptly cancelled them all after allegedly leaving the country.
When he returned, however, he was quickly welcomed to the stage of the Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he was asked softball questions:
8. It was also revealed, during an interview on Fox News, that prior to Paddock firing out of his hotel room window, police had responded to Campos being shot in the leg and were already outside of Paddock’s room.
“As of yesterday it was that two — we knew about Campos — but there were two other police officers from MGM that were on the floor prior to the shooting,” said Craig Eiland.
9. The MGM Grand allegedly has a “corporate watch center” where employees receive training to identify odd or suspicious activity. This, of course, begs the question: how did no one notice Paddock bringing 5,000 bullets, 27 rifles — in 10 different bags — up to his room?
10. On October 31, 2017, when Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov drove a pickup truck through New York that left 8 dead and more injured, countless videos and images were released, identifying the suspect to the public.
To this day, not a single photographic piece of evidence has been released showing Stephen Paddock entering or exiting the Mandalay Bay hotel.
The media may hope that this entire fiasco just disappears out of the public consciousness, but those of us who demand answers will not forget so easily.
