Fauxtography in Tennessee

• Views: 1,141

Bloggers in Tennessee have caught a local “alternative” paper running a doctored photograph of a GOP politician.

Rep. Stacey Campfield said he doesn’t mind a little controversy. The Knoxville lawmaker once tried to join the black caucus.

So, when he championed the law to not allow homosexual and transgender teaching in elementary and middle school, he expected controversy, but not this much.

A photo in the Flyer shows Campfield holding a bumper sticker that says “Confederate Values.” It’s part of an online article on his sex orientation teaching bill, but the problem is that the picture is fake. It was altered from a picture taken six years ago at a Phil Bredesen and Van Hilleary debate.

“I think they should do a retraction. Put something possibly in their paper that says, ‘Hey. Here’s what we did: This is a doctored photo.’ There’s nothing in the photo that says this photo has been altered from its original state,” Campfield said.
