Fox News ‘mistakenly’ edited President Trump out of a photo with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS |

JUL 06, 2020 AT 2:26 PM

Fox News said Monday the network had “mistakenly” edited President Trump out of a photo of himself and Melania Trump (then Melania Knauss) posing with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

The photo, taken by Getty at Mar-a-Lago on Feb. 12, 2000, was used on Fox News during a segment on Sunday about Maxwell’s recent arrest by the FBI in New Hampshire last week in connection to her involvement in Epstein’s sex trafficking. However, the image used on Fox News cropped President Trump out of the photo.

Epstein, who died by suicide last August while awaiting trial, was already a registered sex offender when the photo was taken.

“On Sunday, July 5, a report on Ghislaine Maxwell during FOX News Channel’s America’s News HQ mistakenly eliminated President Donald Trump from a photo alongside then Melania Knauss, Jeffrey Epstein and Maxwell,” a Fox News spokesperson said.

“We regret the error.”

That was stupid to use that picture if you didn't want Donald Trump in the photo.  Use one of the hundred other photos of her that are available.

Which almost leads me to believe it was "mistakenly on purpose".

I see no point to this post. Thank god there isn’t a picture of trump With Obama. I’d assume LB thinks anyone trumps taken a picture with = the veiws trump supports. I’d hate to think he supported the anti American, socialist and racist veiws Obama did.

But there is a point to the post.

It's "See!!?? See!!!?? Trump is bad!! I'm right!"

Agree. They drew attention to it by omission.

Considering it has zero to do with the story in the OP, the sauce is quite weak.

It's an example of the hypocrisy of those who would try to associate Trump with Epstein, yet ignore the countless associations of democrats with sex offenders, serial killers, and murderous cult leaders.

Au contraire. It’s a strong whataboutism, something you excel at, and thus you should appreciate the comeback, even if you hate to admit it. 

If it were about HuffPost, VOX, or Salon cropping Obama (or some other Dem) out of picture, then it would be a "whataboutism".

So the story is only about cropping a picture? Or is it about Trump and Epstein being in the same photo?

If it's simply about cropping photos they should have given some technical advice.

So, if I recall correctly, Trump said that he hasn't been 'friendly' with Epstein in 15 years or more, and this photo is from 2000 or so, … so where's the problem?  I mean, I agree that Fox shouldn't have used the photo at all if they didn't want Trump in it. 

Not sure what to think of all of this.

Not to mention that Trump barred Espstein from Mar Lago

It’s entirely analogous in hypocrisy to BLM focusing on 0.001% of black deaths by police while ignoring 99% by other blacks.

I doubt it was a 'mistake', but using that photo was decidedly in bad taste.

I really dislike US "news" of all flavors.  They all have an agenda.  They all spin.  They are all about ratings...which is why they have turned into infotainment vice news sources.

AND, as proven by FOX this time and all the others on a myriad of occasions, they are either:

a.  Extremely lazy, or

b.  Simply dishonest

I don't take anything any of them say at face value.
