A recent news article reports “According to The Gateway Pundit and Conservative Treehouse, CNN altered a photo of Chris Harper-Mercer, the Oregon shooter, to make him look white.”
“’On the left is the selfie Christopher Mercer uploaded to his social media,’ the Conservative Treehouse reports. ‘On the right is how CNN presented the same selfie in broadcast stories about him. Why did CNN need to change the complexion (color) of their broadcast?’”
“CNN also did not show photos of Mercer’s mother, who is black.”
“The reason CNN altered the photo is obvious: the race of Mercer does not fit the narrative that only white males — and thus white supremacist — can be mass shooters.”
Only one picture of the shooter’s mom has turned up even though the shooter’s (White) father has been all over the news starting with the evening of the shooting. A clear picture of the shooter’s aunt on his mother’s side has been published on a few websites and is shown above.
The liberal media portrayed George Zimmerman as White and lightened up pictures of him as well as repeatedly showing pictures of Trayvon Martin from when he was a ten year old boy. The liberal media is basically as dishonest as ever and perfectly willing to distort information to cover up Black crime and to cover up the problems that arise from an increasingly multi-racial society.
Update 1: CNN is now claiming that they never posted the lighter picture.
There were multiple news networks lightening up George Zimmerman’s photo trying to make the Trayvon Martin issue a Black-White incident. Several innocent White people were murdered and dozens of Whites were viciously attacked around the US thanks to that liberal media deceit.
CNN news a day or two after the shooting was showing several pictures of Chris Harper that looked very light-skinned, much lighter than the pictures on the Internet. None of the media pictures were nearly as dark as the dark picture of him above.
And of course ZERO pictures of the mom have appeared on the mainstream media from what I recall seeing in the news, except maybe for Fox. His pasty-faced liberal father has been all over the news, reinforcing the “White shooter” illusion.
If it weren’t for him admitting to being mixed race on a social media page, people would have been left speculating until the picture of his Black aunt came out and that picture has only gotten very limited circulation. The one picture of his mom that did surface is in such poor lighting, it’s not of much use.
