Fox News has removed modified photos of the Seattle protest from the website – various1 min read
Fox News has removed a digitally modified photo that claims they came from protests when it was in Seattle in a combination of images from different cities.
On Friday, Fox News posted a picture of a man holding a rifle in front of the store with a broken window. Another photo shows a burning car and a store with a person taking to the streets with the caption “Crazy Town”. It was featured alongside an article about the Seattle protests, but the image was actually taken on May 30, according to St. Paul, Miner, The New York Times, CNN and The Seattle Times.
Fox News removed the photos after multiple searches by The Seattle Times, calling the incident a “clear violation of ethical standards for news organizations.”
An editor’s note was added to articles with incorrect photos.
“A photo collage on the FoxNews.com homepage that originally accompanied the story included Seattle’s ‘Capitol Hill Autonomous Region’ and multiple scenes from the rubble after the recent riots. A recent slideshow incorrectly included an image of St. Paul. Fox News regrets these errors, “the note says.
Police in riot gear stormed a rally on Friday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck. Police in riot gear stormed a rally on Friday, removing hundreds of protesters by truck. The area has a screening space for speeches, music and a film about the criminal justice system.
