Remember how the news media controlled the imaging of Trayvon Martin after he was killed? This is what he looked like at the time he died:



But here is an example of one of the images most frequently displayed by the media in an effort to elicit sympathy for him and hatred for his shooter. It shows him when he was several years younger and much more innocent looking:

And here is the photo the media used of George Zimmerman - which was taken 5 years earlier.


But this is how George Zimmerman looked at the time of the shooting.


Here's how Zimmerman looked after the shooting:




The media is doing the exact same thing with Tsarnaev. This is what he looked like around the time of his participation in the bombing in Boston:

But these below are more commonly used images used by the media. They were also taken several years ago when he was several years younger and much more innocent looking:

What stories is the Mainstream Media trying to tell us, by using dated photos? Hmm.

Really?  This is what you've sunk to?  I haven't seen any sympathy for this  young man at all. Why would the media be "Trayvoning" him?  Which is a pretty disrespectful term, by the way.  Trayvon was the victim of a shooting, Dzokhar is the person who allegedly committed the crime.  And Sally, before you jump on that - everyone accused of a crime is "alleged" until they are convicted.

I don't know if it's been done on purpose, but I did notice that they kept putting up the picture that looks like him at prom.  I assumed maybe it was the easiest for the media to find on a social networking site.
