Fox news caught running fake photos

digitally composting photos .they put a heavily armed guy in from of the free cap hill sign to make it seem like he was there
the also put the same gunman in a photo of damage from 2 weeks ago
running photos from minnesota and claiming they are from the autonomous zone of Seattle

once they got caught they removed the photos

its a complete violation of ethics.
but im not surprised,its fox news’s style

Yeah, the problem isn’t that anarchists have seized a section of the Seattle, the problem is Fox News’s pictures.



It reinforces the views and fears of their readers and viewers. Fox is providing the images already present in their demographic’s imaginations. Don’t expect too much outrage.

They shouldn’t do that for any reason. The media on this country is a huge problem.


Seems typical.

Gotta hoax em.

From the link:
“Fox’s site had no disclaimers revealing the photos had been manipulated. The network removed the images after inquiries from The Seattle Times.”

:rofl: the gulliblez will be making fervid sheep noises from their mouth over this Fake News.

From the link:

“In addition, Fox’s site for a time on Friday ran a frightening image of a burning city, above a package of stories about Seattle’s protests, headlined “CRAZY TOWN.” The photo actually showed a scene from St. Paul, Minnesota, on May 30. That image also was later removed.”

Quick! Frightened sheep noises from the mouth over Fox Fake News!

Good Lord.
From the link:
"The image, as displayed on the Fox News website, was spliced with other photos, including a photo of a smashed retail storefront in May, making it look as though the scene was all playing out concurrently in the autonomous zone. “It is definitely Photoshopped,” confirmed Ryder. “To use a photo out of context in a journalistic setting like that seems unethical.”

Photojournalism ethics experts agreed.

“I think it’s disgraceful propaganda and terribly misrepresentative of documentary journalism in times like this, when truth-telling and accountability is so important,” said Kenny Irby, a photojournalism ethics educator and consultant. “There is no attribution. There is no acknowledgment of the montage, and it’s terribly misleading.”"

The problem is that they are lying to express their narrative. Of course Fox has been running story after story on this, so why did they need to LIE to help tell their story, if things are as they say they are?

When that happens, it sounds like a boy crying wolf. It SOUNDS like the “#MSMLSMDNCCLINTONCOMMUNISTNEWSNETWORK” and all that business. Or…#fakenews.

You can bet your bottom dollar that the reaction would be different if this were CNN.


So you are okay with blatant lying from major news outlets. Good to know.

I believe that is called…………“regurgibleating”


Trump would be screaming about taking their operating license, and that is NOT hype.

Oh, of course he would, and Breitbart/Fox/OAN would all have A LOT to say about it as well. They seem more concerned about what CNN reports than they do just reporting the news. Hell, maybe Trump would ban them from the next press event just to make sure they learned their lesson. Maybe have a lawyer send them a letter threatening to sue them.

This is not the only media that has been caught doing this. This is why the media can’t be trusted.

Soft sheep noises from the mouth.

There are people worried more about proving a CNN story was “slanted” than they were the fact that the story was about the president lying to top military officials to get them to a photo op.

People who don’t like #fakenews and slanted coverage are going to show up in this thread and have some words to say about that any time now. Aaaaaaaaany time now.

They are armed people there it is an open carry state, now some in that Chaz zone has said it was because of the threat of the proud boys I don’t know which is true but I saw a guy there with and ar-15 type gun and the way he was dressed and were he was I highly doubt it was and undercover police since they ran away. my problem with CHAZ is the whole taken over part of the city thing which we wouldn’t be happy if the protestors at Charlottesville took over part of a city? Nope same with this bunch the far left and far right are a problem and shouldn’t be kid petted by either side, as it only encourages it more.


Surely Breitbart will be all over this as they’ve always got a watchful eye for fake news media


Yep, that’s as bad as those stock photo’s of Trump with his mouth open or a grimace that you keep seeing in much of the medial pasted in stories that had nothing to do with the photo.
No excuse for any of it.
