Photoshop-Gate Update: CNN Says Biden Campaign Removed Redskins Logo

Photoshop-gate update: CNN claims it is not the culprit.

Here’s where it’s at: As Fox News first wrote, CNN aired a photo of Joe Biden and his son wearing a Redskins hat, but the logo was erased. But not everywhere forever. The internet quickly found the photo originally showed his son’s hat with the Redskins’ logo. Via 2020 technology, it had been deleted.

Most assumed CNN was behind the deletion. CNN says no. In an email to Washingtonian, a network source said the Biden campaign sent the photo absent of the logo. Biden’s campaign said it did so for copyright reasons.

At this point, it appears this story won’t reach the heights it was on pace to. But in the world of cable news and politics, nothing is ever dead, gone unquestioned, believed, or understood.

  1. Copyright infringement? Funny that Biden wasn’t worried about such things when he borrowed almost word for word from others in his various speeches over the years (check YouTube).

    No matter who did the photoshop, the purging of the Redskins name will continue unabated. Within a few years, Redskins merch will be banned from Ebay, Amazon & most other online sellers. Your best bet will be finding them in a local thrift store. I have 6 or so ‘Skins shirts, and don’t plan on selling them…just wearing them & hopefully pissing off a few easily -offended types. Best reply to them if they open their big mouth: “Mind you own f*cking business, pal”…as you walk away.

  2. Orwell wrote in 1984: “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. History has stopped.” Who are the Washington Redskins? Never heard of them.
