For those of you who don’t know, Antonella Barba is a contestant on American Idol. Suggestive photos of her have surfaced on the Internet.
There are many racy photos that she obviously posed for. And why not? She is a beautiful girl. She can do what she wants.
But there is another set of photos that are really bad. These photos do not feature Antonella Barba. The X-rated pictures were found to be from an amateur porn site. The woman has similar facial features to Barba. But if you look closely at their bodies, they are not the same person.
The blog world went wild with these photos without ever checking their sources. Rumor was presented as fact. People were shouting to get her kicked off American Idol.
Please keep in mind that bloggers are not journalists. The Internet is a gigantic storehouse of unverifiable truths.
Information flies so quickly these days and publishing is instantaneous. Be sure to check your facts before you condemn.
