“On Sunday, July 5, a report on Ghislaine Maxwell during the Fox News Channel’s“ America’s News HQ ”show mistakenly eliminated President Donald Trump from a photo alongside Melania Knauss, Jeffrey Epstein and Maxwell,” a network spokesman said.
A Fox News spokesman added: “Sorry for the mistake.”
Maxwell was indicted on Thursday by federal prosecutors in New York for her alleged role in recruiting and sexually abusing underage girls as part of a multi-year criminal enterprise.
Trump’s allies have played ties between former Democratic President Bill Clinton and Epstein sometimes by sharing old photos in which they both appear, while humiliating photos depicting Trump and Epstein together. A Clinton spokeswoman said in 2019 the former president knew “nothing about the horrific crimes” committed by the convicted pedophile.
Trump’s hostile haircut for Fox News attracted criticism and sparked unwelcome media coverage of the conservative cable network. The photo was broadcast during the part about Maxwell who was indicted by federal prosecutors.
It’s not the first time in weeks that Fox News has admitted a significant mistake regarding the photos that accompany the news. In mid-June, Fox News expressed regret after posting digitally altered and erroneous images of the “CHOP” demonstration in Seattle.
