Fox News removes manipulated images from coverage of Seattle protests

Fox removed the edited images in response to an article in the Seattle Times, telling the outlet in a statement, “We have replaced our photo illustration with the clearly delineated images of a gunman and a shattered storefront, both of which were taken this week in Seattle’s autonomous zone.” The image of the shattered storefront, however, was not captured this week in the autonomous zone.

Fox News runs digitally altered images in coverage of Seattle’s protests, Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone

On Saturday, Fox apologized in an editor’s note posted to stories about CHAZ on its website, sayings its home-page photos “did not clearly delineate” the splicing together of multiple images from different locations. The editor’s note also acknowledged the erroneous use of the Minnesota rioting photo to illustrate Seattle news. “Fox News regrets these errors,” the note stated.

The network’s misleading and faked images were published as the Capitol Hill zone — quickly labeled CHAZ — became a political flashpoint for conservatives nationally and a target of tweets by President Donald Trump, who has branded the demonstrators “domestic terrorists” and threatened federal action unless local officials “take back” the area.

Jared Kushner denies claim he runs ’shadow task force,‘ Trump slams ‚fake sources‘

(02.04.2020)

Bennett then asked what Kushner’s „role“ and „qualifications“ are for the alleged role — which was the subject of a Washington Post story last month.

Kushner calmly rebuffed his question and implicitly expressed doubt about the veracity of his sources.

„If some people are talking to you, that means they’re probably not informed as to what is going on,“ the former New Jersey real estate developer and investor said.

Krystal Ball: Democratic establishment would rather have four more years of Trump than see Bernie elected

„These are all people whose power comes from their access to the establishment world — consultants whose grift is based on a certain deal flow from the DNC, et cetera — and they know what you said about they prefer Trump to Bernie — that’s exactly right because they know under a Sanders administration, all of that access and all of that deal flow, all of that is gone and it truly is over for them,“ she said.

Fox’s Wallace presses O’Brien on contradiction between Trump threat claims, briefing

“It does seem to be a contradiction. He’s telling Laura Ingraham [about imminent attacks], but in a 75-minute classified briefing, your top national security people never mentioned this to members of Congress. Why not?” Wallace asked O’Brien on “Fox News Sunday.”

“I wasn’t at the briefing, and I don’t know how the Q&A went back and forth. Sometimes it depends on the questions that were asked or how they were phrased,” O’Brien said.

WATCH: Tucker Carlson calls John Bolton a ‘bureaucratic tape worm’

„This is Washington in a nutshell: Blunder into obvious catastrophes, refuse to admit blame, and demand more of the same. That’s the John Bolton lifecycle. In between administration jobs, there are always cushy think-tank posts, paid speaking gigs, and cable news appearances. War may be a disaster for America, but for John Bolton and his fellow neocons, it’s always good business.“

Iran seeking to expand military program to weapons of mass destruction: German intelligence

(28.05.2019)

Fox News obtained a May 2019 intelligence document from the state of Bavaria detailing Iran’s nefarious weapons activities in the southern German state during the previous year.

Iran is a „risk country“ that is „making efforts to expand its conventional arsenal of weapons with weapons of mass destruction,“ wrote the Bavarian Office for the Protection of the Constitution in its intelligence report.

The Bavarian agency is the rough equivalent of the FBI without arrest powers.

Officials Confirm That Trump Bombed Syria to Validate His Tweets

(18.4.2018) Last week, the United States launched an act of war against a sovereign government because failing to do so would have cast doubt on the credibility of the statements that Donald Trump makes while livetweeting Fox & Friends.

That may sound like hyperbolic snark, or the premise of an Andy Borowitz column, but it is a plain description of the rationale behind last Friday’s missile strikes in Syria, according to multiple military and administration officials.

Anderson Cooper rips Sean Hannity for not revealing legal ties to Trump lawyer

“He seems to be saying, ‘I wasn’t really a client of attorney Michael Cohen’s but our conversations were confidential because he is an attorney and I am his client,” Cooper said.
Cooper made reference to the Fox News motto in summing up his view of Hannity’s ethical conundrum. „Not disclosing a business or legal relationship with someone you reported on … doesn’t sound either fair or balanced,“ Cooper said.

«Selbst Instagram-Models haben höhere Ethik-Standards»: Trumps Anwalt vertritt auch Star-Moderator Hannity

«Das ist eine Kriegserklärung an den Präsidenten der USA!» So wetterte der konservative TV-Moderator Sean Hannity (56) letzte Woche in seiner Sendung auf «Fox News» – immerhin die meistgesehene Nachrichtensendung des Landes. Gerade war bekannt geworden, dass das FBI eine Razzia bei Donald Trumps (71) Anwalt Michael Cohen (51) durchgeführt hatte.

Nun kommt raus: Auch Hannity ist ein Klient von Cohen.
