Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 08, 2020

[Ghislane] Maxwell was a close friend of deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and Fox aired a photo of Maxwell that should look familiar to anyone who followed reports of Epstein's abuse of teenage girls. But there was one thing missing from the image that Fox put on screen: President Donald Trump.

I personally find this "Convenient" editing.

Is this really deceptive?

Meh, maybe

Is it really a lie when you really really want to believe it?

Who really knows
Nothing can be done
Just live with it

That's certainly the message I would teach my children

" I personally find this "Convenient" editing."

That image made its way to air because of the efforts of some low level production staffer who used the first image they came across. If Trump was in the image they found it was edited iwithout thinking through the implications but there are cropped images already in existence. I don't believe there was anything nefarious or deceptive happening here. There are other pictures of Maxwell and Epstein out there; you just have to make it to the second page of your Google search.

@#3 ... That image made its way to air because of the efforts of some low level production staffer who used the first image they came across. ...

Either your rationale is correct, and Fox News is careless, or Fox News knew exactly what they were doing and they were lying to their audience.

My guess would be that Fox News has a pretty good process to determine what images are put on the air, so I'm leaning towards the latter.

This stuff just keeps happening over and over and over, whether it's "conveniently" cropped photos or whether it's the chyron misidentifying Republican criminals as Democrats, and so on. Either Faux hires the WORST producers in the industry, or as suspected they are doing their best to hide the truth from the sheeple.

I suspect most people who watch Faux Spews, and count themselves among the deplorables have no clue that 45 and Epstein were besties, and that 45's been credibly accused of raping a 13-year-old girl associated with Epstein. I couldn't believe that some busy ditch on my FB feed claimed that the reason Barr fired Berman was so that they could move the Maxwell case forward. It's far more likely Barr's concerned that the case is getting too close to the Resident and fired Berman because he's looking for a way to scuttle it. That's probably why the FBI and SDNY moved on Maxwell so quickly after Berman was pushed out, because they knew this was the case Barr had in his sights. Now it'll be MUCH harder to smother it with a pillow.

What are the chances that they cropped out Trump for the stock photo?... the photo WAS of Trump and Epstein... the editing seems obvious as hell.

But don't worry FOX, your viewers will still believe anything you tell them because education is bad.

What is Fox News trying to hide?

Lies and the lying liars who tell them.

Fox News lies. But, they are court approved liars.

They would also be apoplectic if MSNBC or that fake news CNN had pulled a stunt like this.

I'll wager that 95 of 100 Trump mouth-breathers don't know who Epstein and Maxwell are/were, don't care, and if they were informed wouldn't care if their orange idol was tapping teen girls.

But look! Melania is at a party, having a good time. She's so pretty when she smiles!

Rupert Murdoch's (may he rot in hell)
Propaganda Channel...
