ResistanceMedia Responds to Accusations of "Smearing Students"
CENTREVILLE, VA: Today ResistanceMedia.org responded to accusations by John Mahan, an English Teacher at Falls Church High School, claiming that ResistanceMedia is "smearing" and "targeting" students.
These claims were made on Facebook, in reference to an article published November 12, regarding Falls Church High School (FCHS) distributing safety pins to students in the wake of Donald J. Trump's electoral victory. In the article, this site did publish photos of a teacher and two Falls Church students wearing their safety. However, those pictures had been publicly posted on Twitter by those depicted in them. ResistanceMedia would not have published the photos if they had not been FIRST made availailable by the students. No names or personally identifiable information were published along with the photos.
ResistanceMedia will remove the images if the students or their parents request. Requests may be made through the comment section or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org.)
