Quddus spreads Sandy Hook conspiracy nuttery
Quddus, host of ABC’s “Duets,” apparently isn’t the only one “wondering” about Sandy Hook.
Have you seen this expose on the Sandy Hook shooting? I don’t usually jump at conspiracy theories but I do wonder.. youtu.be/Wx9GxXYKx_8

We can’t blame Quddus for this one — the video has already racked up more than 11 million views on YouTube without his help — but the rule not to jump at conspiracy theories is a good one to follow, especially in this case. Sure, the media got a lot wrong in its early reports on the massacre, but that’s more of a reflection on today’s journalists than the government. What inspired the video’s anonymous creator to put it together, aside from his high school research into 9/11? “These people and the whole town had this artificial vibe about them,” he told Gawker.
Quddus is best known as the former host of MTV’s “Total Request Live,” so if it’s not too much to ask, we have one simple request: stop promoting Sandy Hook conspiracy theories.
