As our nation mourns on the loss of American lives in Washington, D.C. on September 16th, still a lot of questions remained unanswered why the shootings took place. Already, only hours after the shooting, conspiracy theories have begun to float around the internet, as they seem to do after every major tragedy. One such conspiracy theory is targeting The Daily Courier of Kelowna, British Columbia.

The paper posted an article covering the events in Washington.

What's raising eye brows of conspiracy theorists is that the article was published and time stamped on September 15th at 11:31PM. The shootings took place in Washington, D.C. on September 16th around 9AM. Was there a goof up in time stamps? Perhaps. The internet is a crazy place.
