Far-left website Raw Story was caught using an image of white stay-at-home protesters to illustrate an article about a black terror suspect who allegedly planned to kill police officers.
The controversy surrounded an article by Raw Story writer and former ShareBlue pundit Matthew Chapman entitled Ohio man arrested for plot to kidnap police and stockpile their weapons for an uprising.
The article was originally posted on both Raw Story and Twitter with an image showing three white men wearing tactical gear. The clear implication in using the image suggested that one of the men in the photograph was the terror suspect.
However, according to Shutterstocks original description of the image, it shows members of the Yellowstone Militia of Billings protesting Montanas stay at home orders.
The actual suspect, 20-year-old Christian Stanley Ferguson, who was arrested on charges that he concocted an elaborate plan to kidnap law enforcement officers, stockpile their weapons, and build up an arsenal to start an uprising,' looks like this.
After the discrepancy was pointed out by Mike Cernovich and others, Raw Story deleted the tweet, pulled the original image and replaced it with an image of police tape.
