Nolte: CNN Uses Soviet-Style Airbrushing to Erase Redskins Logo from 70s Biden Photo
Breitbart ^ | September 9, 2020 | John Nolte

Posted on 09/09/2020 8:13:17 AM PDT by ProtectOurFreedom

“CNN appears to have altered a widely seen photograph of Joe Biden with his young son to remove the logo of the Washington Redskins,” reports Fox News.

If CNNLOL is willing to go to all the trouble to lie about little things like this to protect Joe Biden and to defeat Trump, imagine the lengths CNNLOL is currently going to to lie and mislead and gaslight over big things. Stuff that matters. Thought of that should put a chill straight up your spine.

In June, on Father’s Day, Biden, the Democrat nominee for president, shared a photo of himself and his young son, a sweet photo of the boy lying comfortably in his father’s arms. The little boy is wearing a hat with a Redskins logo.

Nevertheless, like something straight out of Josef Stalin’s Soviet Union, or George Orwell’s 1984, CNNLOL broadcast the photo during its Monday night documentary, Fight for the White House: Joe Biden’s Long Journey, and airbrushed out the Redskins logo.

Imagine what else these liars are airbrushing. Wrap your mind around the CNNLOL airbrushing we haven’t found out about.

You have to be insanely woke to even DREAM about doing this! As Nolte says, if they will go to these lengths for something as innocuous as this, what else are they airbrushing out?

CNN is chock full of true-believer comrades and apparatchiks.

I’m no fan of Biden, but I just see this as cleaning up a photo to hide distracting information. I remove electrical wires from some of my photos to clean them up. If this photo was not about pro sports, I’d understand why they took it out. The photo looks better and focuses on the subject at hand with less mental clutter.

Huh? LOL.

It's a news photo, dude -- not a marketing image or something for your home photo album.

I disagree. While you did it to improve the aesthetic of your photo, a news organization should not feel compelled to do the same.

I am not as willing as you perhaps seem to be to give CNN a free pass on this.

“Our decision to remove the drowned body of Mary Jo Kopechne from the photograph of Ted Kennedy was an aesthetic one and in no way an attempt to protect his reputation or his future electability.”

I understand that. Is the label the news they were reporting? I see it like removing a coke can.

I’m no fan of Biden or CNN, but I think we need to choose our battles. How’d that birther thing go for us?

As a government employee in the Department of Defense, we were not allowed to alter photographs, unless we documented the changes, and the documents accompanied the photograph.

And that seems quite appropriate. But CNN is a private orgainization focused on entertainment via presenting the news in a way that brings in advertising dollars. And since that symbol is not germane to the story, and added clutter to the photo, as a photographer myself, I would remove that symbol, unless I was a big fan of the team and my bias caused me to leave it in - or it was part of the story.

At best they could have just blurred it out (like they do with Name Brand Logos on Reality TV Shows), but the went to the trouble of eliminating in and making it look like it never existed.

In other words, Propaganda.

Not surprising given CNN is an arm of the DEMONcRAT Party.

Remember, Propaganda isn’t just what they tell you, it’s what they decide not to tell you.

Wanna Bet they would do the same if the Photo was showing Donald Trump holding one of his young Sons?

Wow, you are gracious this morning!

This is CNN. They should never be given the benefit of the doubt.

It really isn’t a “battle” so much as it is an exposé of crooked journalism and confirmation of “fake news.” As Nolte writes, if they will do this over something as insignificant and inconsequential as a sports logo, what else will they hide?

I suppose if it was a Detroit Lions logo we would all sympathize with its removal. Who would want to be associated with that?

If it was President Trump, they would Photoshop IN an anarchist symbol or a satanist symbol.

Absolutely. A phrase I hated to see on FR during the Obama debacle was “To be fair.” As in, “To be fair, that’s not really what Obama meant. Let’s not pile on him for that. It just makes us look bad.” The left will NEVER, EVER cut us some slack, give us the benefit of the doubt, etc. So my position always is, if Obama is being hurt by a falsehood, certainly don’t perpetuate the falsehood, because that will just make us look like fools. But never, EVER come to his defense. Let HIM explain himself. Let HIS media excuse it away. But I for one will never defend that slug for any reason. And the idea that someone would defend CNN when they are providing a service to Joe Biden is incredible.

Usually you are logical, have you been hitting the Kentucky juice early today?

You are giving a pass to cnn for this act of communist propaganda?

We'll just disappear the REDSKINS LOGO.

CNN could not have said that any better. Propaganda is an art form.Making things vanish is what Nazis,Soviets,Chicoms and the Taliban have done. It seems the point has flown way over one's head.

I’m giving them a pass in the “stopped clock is right twice a day” sort of way. I also prefer to focus on issues that are more blatant with less plausible deniability.
