  • Fox News publishes digitally altered and misleading images of Seattle demonstrations

Fox News is one such media outlet that published a series of articles on how the Seattle "autonomous zone" has armed guards and local businesses are being threatened with extortion, and how the Seattle Police has been urged to take back control from "brazen, anti-cop anarchists".

The armed man, according to the Seattle Times, had first been photographed on June 10 inside what has been dubbed the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ).

Speaking with the Seattle Times, photojournalism ethics expert Kenny Irby decried the network's actions.

On Friday, Fox News posted a photo of a man holding a rifle in front of a store with broken windows. Seattle residents have nicknamed the reclaimed police station the "Seattle People Station". Fox News also published an alternate version of this image, where the armed man appeared to stand in front of a sign that said, "You are now entering Free Cap Hill". Fox has since also removed that image.

The image of the gunman is from a Getty Images photo that was taken on June 10 at what is known as the "Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone" protest area.

Fox also used images from protests in other states in its coverage of the Seattle unrest.

The conservative outlet also published a photo of a person running past a fiery building and vehicle to accompany stories on the Seattle protest.

On Friday, the Wall Street Journal reported Seattle is negotiating with Black Lives Matter activists to determine a way to clear the Autonomous Zone and return the area to a semblance of normal.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best on Sunday announced she had an "epiphany" that "policing will never be the same" following national outcry over the death of George Floyd, and as her department remains locked out of the East Precinct.

"Editor's Note: A home page photo collage which originally accompanied this story included multiple scenes from Seattle's "Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone" and of wreckage following recent riots".

"We have replaced our photo illustration with the clearly delineated images of a gunman and a shattered storefront", the Fox statement read in part.

The Seattle Times said Fox took down the photos after the newspaper inquired and a Fox News spokeswoman acknowledged the issue in a statement that falsely claimed all photos were from the same week and the same location. In addition, a recent slideshow depicting scenes from Seattle mistakenly included a picture from St. Paul.

When the Seattle Times asked about the pictures, a Fox News spokesperson lied about it, saying that the pictures had been taken this week.
