CNN appears to have used a doctored image of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden with his young son, in a gushing propaganda "documentary" clearly produced to promote the former VP for the presidency.
The Democratic nominee initially shared back in June, a photo of himself and a young Hunter Biden from a Washington Redskins game, to commemorate Father's Day.
But when CNN used the photo in their Monday night special "Fight for the White House: Joe Biden's Long Journey," the Redskins logo was removed from the hat!
The "news" network was immediately castigated for such "Soviet-style propaganda."
Back in the U.S.S.R., "Pravda" and other state-run "news" services would routinely, in Orwellian fashion, erase former allies of dictator Joseph Stalin when they became enemies and were murdered or imprisoned by him.
In this photo, Stalin is shown with "right-hand man" Nikola Yezhov, a secret police official who oversaw the brutal Stalin's purges. When he fell out of favor, and was executed after a secret trail in 1938, Soviet censors literally ERASED Yezhov from every public photo:
Now that the "Redskins" name has fallen out of favor with the far-left American intelligentsia -- it too must be ERASED fro history, as if it never existed - even though the candidate himself posted the original photo just 3 months ago!

Why is this not an illegal campaign contribution?
They erased Hillary's many crimes the last Presidential election.
It’s what the leftist media has been doing for years. Changing the depiction of history to suit the fascists.
All my life I’d thought what happened in the Soviet Union under Stalin could never happen here.
Well I don’t think like that anymore after seeing ANTIFA BLM terrorists and their enablers in the Orwellian fake news media in action.
We often forget that mankind essentially has similar characteristics and that almost all American citizens came from the same countries that have gone through brutal regimes and civil wars in the past.
exactly and why do they still have press credentials ?
They could have just pixelated it and nobody would have said a thing, but they had to go FULL SOVIET................
When caught, CNN will next claim a “glitch” caused the logo to vanish.
Question— how many people would have been offended by the photo showing the Redskins logo? We all know it’s an old photo.
But then, how many are disturbed by the intentional alteration of what seems to be an ordinary photo?
I suspect this alteration simply draws unwanted attention to the media wanting to change what is reported, for some partisan political reason.
Never even heard of the book before but I am going to read it. A must read book in these uncertain times I’d have thought.
My Post from the competing Thread on this subject:
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 isnt just what they tell you, its 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?
“Come on, Man, that was a tender moment with my son, who recently died after serving honorably in the military. How dare you attack me for that tender picture, you dog-lipped raccoon licker!”
Hunter roots only for all-girls teams now....cackle.
AS I think about this , the new Washington Football Team and network coverages will not be able to lay any claim to past Redskins championships, show any Redskins videos, or any reference to their long list of Hall of Fame players.
They are a new team, without any history...
They also seemed to have smoothed out Bidens face too.
They also need to put a negro boy in to replace the white boy son.
You know you have no standards when you work at CNN.
Mmmmmm.....he was very young in that pic w/ baby Hunter.
But his face today has clearly been under the care of a plastic surgeon.
