After Rolling Stone first spotted a June 2 Fox News video report where the network selectively edited out police overreacting with guns drawn and handcuffing the wrong people in Los Angeles, now the network has been busted doing the same with photos.

According to the Seattle Times, on Friday Fox News' website published digitally altered and misleading images to make the largely peaceful demonstrators in Seattle's Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) look violent and dangerous.

One of the altered photos featured a man holding a military-style rifle in front of a smashed out storefront. But according to the Times, the image was actually two different photos — one from May 30 and the other from June 10 — and the armed man was superimposed in front of the broken window.
