FOX NEWS CHANNEL ALTERS PICTURES FOR BROADCAST

July 3, 2008

The taglines at the Fox News Channel are phrases like “we report, you decide” and “fair and balanced.”

Now the network has been busted altering photos for use on one of its NEWS shows.

On the July 2nd edition of Fox & Friends, co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade accused New York Times reporter Jacques Steinberg and his editor Steven Reddicliffe of being “attack dogs” and running a “hit piece” on Fox News Channel. Doocy and Kilmeade were critical of a story Steinberg wrote regarding the station’s ratings. During the segment Fox News ran pictures of both Steinberg and Reddicliffe. Those pictures were altered by Fox.

Don’t believe me? See for yourself. Here’s the picture Fox News ran of Steinberg next to the actual photograph of the reporter.

Notice how Fox News deliberately yellowed Steinberg’s teeth and blackened his eyes. They also made his nose and ears bigger.

Here’s the before and after pictures of Steinberg’s editor, Steven Reddicliffe.

In Reddicliffe’s case Fox againĀ put dark circles underĀ his eyes and blackened them (severely.) The network also yellowed his teeth and moved his hairline back.

Besides being incredibly juvenile, this is one of the most outrageous cases of outright deception in the history of “journalism.” Somebody at Fox needs to get fired over this. If Doocy or Kilmeade had any knowledge of this debacle THEY need to go. Or at least be suspended. When a news organization alters reality it affects the credibility of an entire network (just ask the people at Dateline NBC.)

All from the people who brought you “fair and balanced.”
