You see, this is how the state sanctioned propaganda works
push a false narrative, a very vindictive hateful
The image, taken by photographer John Moore, showing a girl crying as her mother is searched
CORRECTION: This story has been updated to correctly describe the image of the crying girl on the Time cover.
No, scrap that, The Onion at least is overt satire, these bastards at CNN & TIME and others are pure scum, they have no interest in truth, they rely on optics, imagery and emotions to maintain their ratings.

Fake news imagery? LOL Watch out for those political cartoons! Hint: It's all symbolic commentary.
Are you saying you don't find this at all dishonest?
What I think is your outrage is hypocritical as both sides of the opinion spectrum manipulate images to impress a point on the viewer. Don't be such a snowflake!

And here I thought the OP was filled with irony but you saved the best for last. Jack Posobiec was behind this:
You want to about liars, false narratives and propaganda images? You're talking about a guy who runs out into crowds holding signs he made, snaps a few pictures and then uploads them to social media in order to smear protestors by falsely claiming that the protestors were holding the sign.
I don't know how much more egregious one's actions could be than THAT.

We started that way. I can't tell you the number of people who get 100% of their news from headlines and pictures only. No narrative. No research.
I don't fault them for that. Busy people with busy lives. When media was more 'honest', it wasn't a big deal.
*Now* is another story.
Because nearly everything is an extreme manipulation in media, we really have entered perilous times. We have yet to see the full price of this, but I fear a terrible price is coming nonetheless.

Now, lets get down to the business of exposing the scum who would use such images to push a false narrative, a very vindictive hateful anti-Trump narrative.
CNN is very fake news,...these bastards at CNN & TIME and others are pure scum, they have no interest in truth, they rely on optics, imagery and emotions to maintain their ratings.
