On this pre-recorded episode James appears on the February 1, 2016 Jeff Rense Program to discuss his recent termination from Florida Atlantic University. Veteran alternative media broadcaster Jeff Rense probes the relationship between Tracy’s firing and the research Profs. Tracy and Fetzer have conducted on the Sandy Hook massacre, Boston Marathon bombing, and similar controversial events.
Fetzer’s edited volume, Nobody Died at Sandy Hook, was abruptly banned from sale by Amazon.com and dropped by Amazon’s subsidiary publishing arm Create Space in November 2016. Less than one month later FAU fired Tracy from his tenured position following publication of an inflammatory opinion piece authored by “Lenny and Vernonique Pozner,” the parents of one Noah Pozner, a purported victim in the Sandy Hook event. The Pozners claimed Tracy was harassing the couple over the death of their son. In subsequent mainstream reportage most accounts failed to explain that Tracy was responding to an illegitimate copyright infringement claim Pozner and his “HONR Network” filed with Tracy’s internet service provider in March 2015.
Prof. Fetzer has been appointed to publicize and solicit contributions for the James Tracy Legal Defense Fund. Moon Rock Books, the publisher of the volumesNobody Died at Sandy Hook and, more recently, And Nobody Died at Boston Either, has donated $3,000 to the Fund.
