FACES of Coal are iStockPhotos?!

The Farce Continues

We’ve touched on the fact that the new coal industry front group “FACES” has yet to come forward with a list of their members. Well, thanks to a few new media> gumshoes, including our own Jamie Goodman and our friends at DeSmogBlog, we’ve learned that not only is FACES hosted by a K-Street firm called Adfero, but all of the “FACES” of coal are actually just istockphotos. They couldn’t even get real photos of their supporters.

Exhibit B

Exhibit C

Hmmm, I think I’ve seen these faces before. (Thanks Jed!)

Update I: Our crack team discovered a few more stockphotos overnight. They are posted below the fold.
Update II: It seems the “Adfero” link which was working last night, has been hidden and made private. Hopefully someone got a screenshot before it was closed.
