CBS News Manipulates ‘Latinos For Trump’ Event Pic At Biden Campaign Stop

CBS Uses Photo From “Latinos for Trump” as Image for Biden Latino Outreach in Miami.

Latinos for Trump

CBS News used a photo of enthusiastic citizens waving American flags and smiling while the chyron across the screen reads “BIDEN PITCHES CRUCIAL LATINO VOTERS DURING FLORIDA CAMPAIGN STOP.” Only one problem; it is actually a photo from a “Latino’s for Trump” event in Phoenix. The misuse was caught by an eagle-eyed Twitter user:

Fox News covered Biden’s actual event and a photo from it shows an empty room with five people, who by the way, are not socially distanced despite plenty of space. Twitter user @LD25_GOP tweeted the mistake with a screengrab of CBS News’ false accusation. “CBS stole a Photo from Latinos for Trump in Phoenix and tagged it as a Biden event. #fakenews.”

As The Conservative Treehouse news website notes, CBS’s manipulation is exactly in line with Terry McAuliffe’s admitted strategy for a Biden win. In June, former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe raised eyebrows when during a campaign strategy call with DNC officials, McAuliffe said:

People say all the time, ‘Oh, we got to get the vice president out of the basement…He’s fine in the basement. Two people see him a day: his two body people. That’s it. Let Trump keep doing what Trump’s doing…It’s hard for the vice president to break through…He’s not a governor, doesn’t have the National Guard. He’s not the president, doesn’t have a briefing room…And when he says something like he did on race relations two days ago, it needs to have a big impact – thoughtful, and that’s what we’re preferring that he actually do at the time.
