Dr. James Tracy was a highly regarded professor of media studies who’s job it was to critically analyze the media reporting of significant events. For unknown reasons, personally sharing honest analysis of the Sandy Hook event triggered a media attack on Dr. Tracy.

The media began to pressure the university in which he was a tenured professor and labeled him the ‘Conspiracy Professor.’

Shockingly, Professor Tracy was fired from Florida Atlantic University on January, 6th of this year.

If left unchallenged, these unjust actions are surely not the last to expect for America. Therefore, a group of concerned citizens and fellow scholars have established and incorporated the James Tracy Legal Defense Fund.

Please support Dr. Tracy:

James F. Tracy was Associate Professor of Journalism and Media Studies at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton from 2002 to 2015. He was officially terminated on January 8, 2016 from his tenured position at FAU, ostensibly for questioning university policy and failing to file paperwork in a timely fashion. Tracy received his PhD from the University of Iowa. His work on media history, politics and culture has appeared in a wide variety of academic journals, edited volumes, and alternative news and opinion outlets. He hosts a weekly interview program, Real Politik, on, and is also an affiliate of Project Censored. Additional information is accessible at
