As Media Reports Conflict, Why Was Trayvon Martin Photo Altered?
Riehl World View ^ | 3/26/12 | staff

Posted on 03/26/2012 1:40:11 PM PDT by Nachum

Among a few interesting items uncovered in trying to examine the facts behind the shooting of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin without drawing any conclusions, was that a widely viewed photograph of Martin appears to have been altered, somewhat.

Here is what appears to be the original via the Miami Herald.

I think this whole story is to kick up a bunch of dust to cover something else. What is Obama up besides giving information to Russia?

One comment notes that one photo appears to be simply a zoomed in bit of the other...which would explain the added blurriness. Of course, even if not “altered” the two photos do a give different impressions. To me, the really interesting bits were the changes in the data on the victim.

Something interesting is afoot....and the MSM, in its infinite ability to lie by omission, commission, general sleeze-mission, or their normal incompetence...is right in the center of it.

No kidding! We need to declare a Trayvon/Zimmerman-free zone and let other useful idiots pursue this story to the detriment of important ones.

The Obama media understands that in order to win in November The One MUST have overwhelming support by white women and blacks. They know a Rubio VP tagged to Romney will fracture the Hispanic vote.

Hence: the war on women; now we have a war on black youth...this meme will (they hope) carry into the fall.

We’ll see.

A good point and the first thing that comes to mind is Obamacare and the Supreme court. The second thing is the Economy is in a downward spiral precisely because of Obamacare and overwhelming new regulations designed to harm businesses and the economy in general.

NWCN - Northwest Cable News - used side-by-side photos in yesterday’s news blurb that showed a happy, smiling angelic (and much younger-looking) Trayvon along with Zimmerman looking unkempt and scowly wearing what appears to be an orange jumpsuit. Photoshop, much?

Blatant, blatant propaganda and manipulation. Totally corrupt. That degree of open manipulation is what should be haunting your dreams today - it’s a very, very bad sign. You know where it leads...

I haven’t searched FR, but has anyone posted TM’s twitter name?

I have been told his twitter name is: “no-limit-ni$$er”

I don’t “do” twitter, so, can someone verify this is him?

‘Fast & Furious’ is getting hot and heavy. Eric Holder is hiding under the “Trayvon shield” shirking responsibility for his shenanigans; Obstruction, fraud, contempt, blah blah blah.. Okay, back to my ‘hoodie solidarity dance’.

Fake, but 'accurate'*.

* accurate = in keeping with the false propaganda narrative we're pushing.

It’s about the video of Obama supporting Derrick Bell and critical race theory. It’s also a precursor to the riots that will occur in every state where Obama loses but the vote is close. The only way to get rid of him is if it is a massive landslide. Look up his cousin Odinga in Kenya and see how he handled losing an election. Obama advised him, and he has the same in store for us.

At a minimum, using the death to create black hysteria is for the purpose of "energizing" them to "get out and vote" for the current occupant of the White House.

The basic problem faced by the black "leadership" is keeping the frenzy going for a long enough time to effect the outcome of the November election. There are efforts to link "The Hoodies" with the "Occupy Wall Street" gang. In order to keep up a black fever pitch it will be found desireable to delay Zimmerman's arrest for as long as possible.

Some of this is strictly Twilight Zone. I’ve been off FR for a bit, so I don’t know—but has anyone remarked on the uncanny similarity to the situation in Bonfire of the Vanities? Even down to the “honor-student” aspect?

To make him look like Obama before Obama took to the microphone and said “He looks like my son if I had one”.

Trying to create a psychological impression among his peeps
that the crackers are out to get Barry too.

And Mummy Dearest is also trademarking Trayvon’s name so she’ll get in on the t-shirt money and souvenir trade. So sordid. I feel badly that someone so young is snuffed out, but in my wildest imagination I can’t believe if it were my son I’d be trying to make a buck out of it. And most likely she’ll be suing the state of Florida...she’s lawyered up.

GMTA.

I was going to bring this up about O.J. and the altered magazine covers.

Words fail in every step of this incident.

The media is misrepresenting Trayvon Martin almost as well as they did Barack 0bama.
