They say, “Seeing is believing” and “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Well, get ready for what seems like an incredibly unbelievable display of fake news reporting.
If you watched President Trump’s talk to the Nation regarding the border wall the evening of January 9, 2019, you may, or may not have seen, what amounts to a deliberate fake news report, insofar as a TV station editing and inserting into their live feed, something President Trump did NOT do: i.e., stick out his tongue to the camera. Hopefully, that display of unprofessional media madness was local to the Seattle area TV audience.
In a side-by-side comparison, Q13 Fox in Seattle appears to have edited its coverage of Trump’s address, turning the president’s skin color a ludicrous shade of orange. In between
sentences, the station seems to have doctored the footage to show Trump sticking out his tongue and licking his lips.
Note the difference in President Trump’s facial skin color: Orange, as opposed to the juxtaposed side-by-side real live CNN feed of the President’s speech!
InfoWars reported “SEATTLE NEWS STATION CAUGHT DOCTORING TRUMP VIDEO TO MAKE PRESIDENT LOOK STUPID Deep fake technology used to portray Trump as an idiot; Media ignores.”
This type of flagrant fake news doctoring, in particular, needs to be prosecuted as a criminal act, which it is, and in violation of the TV station’s code of operations, plus ethics.
(Update: The editor has been fired, according to Q13 Fox)
What more proof do citizens need to understand that the U.S. news media, 90% of which is owned by six corporations, are NOT reporting most of the ‘news’ accurately.
