    The Seattle Times reports a staffer at local Fox affiliate Q13 has been fired after the station aired a doctored (and insulting) video of President Donald Trump’s first primetime speech from the Oval Office on Tuesday. Local radio host Todd Herman was sent a video from a listener. As the Times reported, "The video was changed to make it look as if Trump was sticking his tongue out languidly between sentences. In addition, the colors in the video look more saturated, leading the president’s skin and hair to appear more orange." Here's a side-by-side video: Was video of President Trump's...

    France3, a French media outlet, has altered a photograph of a protest to change an anti-Macron sign into a pro-Macron sign France3, a French media outlet, has altered a photograph of a political protest sign to make the message on the sign the exact opposite of what is actually on the sign.The original sign (if translated to English) says, “Macron Resign.”But France3 removed the word “resign,” thus changing the meaning of the sign from anti-Macron to pro-Macron.A spokesperson from France3 said this alteration was due to “human error.”I’m not buying that. How do you “accidentally” use Photoshop (or whatever they were...
  • This Photo Claiming to be 'Cassini's Last Image' is Totally Fake

    The image has been doing the rounds over the past few days, racking up tens of thousands of views and retweets on social media. But the image was created using computer graphics. Some people have confused the image for a real photo simply because it appeared on the NASA website, but the description of the image makes it clear that its just an artists depiction: This artists concept shows an over-the-shoulder view of Cassini making one of its Grand Finale dives over Saturn. The Cassini probe was a joint project between NASA, ESA (the European Space Agency), and the Italian...

    Think of sharks swimming in the streets of New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy, or someone flying a "where's my damn dinner?" banner over a women's march. Those images were fake, but clever manipulation can trick news outlets and social media users into thinking they're real. Whenever someone alters an image, unless they are pixel perfect in their work, they always leave behind indicators that the photo is modified. Metadata and watermarks can help determine a source image, and forensics can probe factors like lighting, noise distribution and edges on the pixel level to find inconsistencies. If a color is slightly...

    The family separation issue is tough, but don't expect liberals at TIMEmagazine to understand that. On Thursday, the magazine's cover attacked President Donald Trump as heartless."Welcome to America," the cover's title, is trending on Twitter.Orlando talk radio host Joe Kelly shared the cover, and explained it briefly. "Time Magazine's latest cover features a fabricated mashup of a child at the border crying with a seemingly uncaring President Trump staring down at her with the words 'Welcome to America,'" he explained.

    A viral photo that appeared to depict a child detained at the border over his immigration status was actually taken at a protest, according to fact-checkers. The image was shared by social media users like journalist and filmmaker Jose Antonio Vargas, who said in the caption: "This is what happens when a government believes people are 'illegal.' Kids in cages." However, fact-checking websites Snopes and PolitiFact found other pictures of the boy wearing the same clothes at a demonstration on June 10 organized by the Brown Berets de Cemanahuac's Texas chapter in Dallas.

    The scene opened on a room with a red sofa, a potted plant and the kind of bland modern art youd see on a therapists wall. In the room was Michelle Obama, or someone who looked exactly like her. Wearing a low-cut top with a black bra visible underneath, she writhed lustily for the camera and flashed her unmistakable smile. Then, the former first ladys doppelgnger began to strip.

    Did CBS's 60 Minutes photoshop Steve Bannon into looking like a bleary-eyed drunk in his interview? That's the verdict of a professional photographer, who suspected something off after having seen Bannon in person. The short video Peter Duke made, explaining the photoshopper's art, is a must-see. Duke noted that color correction and grading can be used to make faces look better, but they can also be used to make people look worse. He pulled up some stills from the 60 Minutes interview.

The cover which has the headline Heidi Cruz: Betrayed by Cheating Husband! and promised details on a sordid threesome, sleazy love letters and sensational photo proof has never appeared on the National Enquirer, according to sources at the magazine.

    WSVN anchor Robbin Simmons tweeted out a video of what appears to be red strobe lights flashing in the White House Sunday evening. While there has been no official statement from the White House explaining the red strobe lights, they could be lens reflectors that can uncover hidden cameras. These camera detectors use infra red strobe reflections to find all types of covert cameras no matter if they are on or off. Powerful infrared principle reflects off the cameras optic lens up to 60 feet away. Is the White house bugged? Would Obama and his shadow government really bug the...

    NPR ^ | 10/16/2015
    New posters featuring Hillary Clinton seem to be trying to make her "high flying, adored" with voters. The new images appeared at a campaign stop in San Antonio, Texas, where Clinton wooed Latino voters on Thursday. But according to NPR's Tamara Keith, the campaign says they don't know where the likeness came from. Banners were plastered all over the venue along with smaller signs and t-shirts. The image of the black-clad Clinton profile may seem familiar to those who love either Argentinean history or musical theater specifically Andrew Lloyd Weber's "Evita." The 1978 musical told the story of Eva...

    A Gallup poll released yesterday shows that an all-time low of 7 percent of Americans say that they have a great deal of trust and confidence in the media. At the other end of the spectrum, a record high of 24 percent said their trust and confidence in the media is none. The combined 60 percent who say they have either no trust in the media (24 percent) or not very much trust (36 percent) also matched an all-time high. [] Democrats were far more likely than Republicans or Independents to have trust and confidence in the media, according to...

    An image many call provocative, if not offensive, has caused an uproar on social media platforms since last week. The photo, taken by gay artist Ed Freeman of young men holding up a rainbow flag, replicates the iconic picture of Marines and a Navy Corpsman raising the American flag at Iwo Jima in 1945. The Washington Post decided to highlight the controversy July 1 and let the artist defend himself. Freeman told the Post that the image originally for a cover of the gay magazine, Frontiers, was taken over ten years ago. After the Supreme Court ruling last week, someone...
