    Sourcing Trayvon Martin “Photos” From Stormfront

    Sourcing Trayvon Martin "Photos" From Stormfront : CJR

    Business Insider runs a linkbait post with a graphic of Trayvon Martin images it found on the neonazi website Stormfront.
    It doesn’t run them to debunk them, mind you, but to back up its thesis that “The Media Is Getting the Trayvon Martin Story Wrong,” as it says in the title bar (the headline hedges it as “Why Lots Of People Think The Media Is Wrong About The Trayvon Martin Case.”

    ...

    Oh, hey—oops! Guess you shouldn’t have sourced material from neonazis on the Internets about an inflamed racial controversy.
    A half hour or so after that correction, Business Insider removed one of the Stormfront-sourced pictures—of a black kid who doesn’t look like Martin flipping off the camera—but left up the Stormfront-sourced picture of a black kid with gold teeth who looks a bit more like Martin, but maybe not, actually.
    Journalists have REALLY dropped the ball on this issue. Citing Stormfront? Wtf?

    Is the story that these pictures are not real or is the story that racists have posted these pictures?

    If those photos are real its much different than these. A picture is worth a thousand a words.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I would think the story is the photos are questionable based on the source.

    The story is, nobody knows anything yet, but that didn't stop Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Barack Obama from commenting anyway.

    This is now a full-blown racial issue, thanks to the usual suspects.

    How old is he in the family photos? He looks about 13 in the solo one, and 10-11 in the one with the baby to me.

    The family gave photos that most reminded them of their son. I doubt it was some plot.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    And then they filed applications to trademark his name.

    The story is that some of the pictures are of a different person by the same name. The pictures of him flipping his finger at the screen are of another user. Both pics were sourced out of Stormfront.

    I think the results would be a lot different if these were the photos of the alleged murderer and victim the media was showing

    Instead of these
