The Seattle Times reports Fox News' website featured at least two photos on Friday that inserted an image of a man standing with a military-style rifle, and that there were no disclaimers on how they were manipulated when featured on the network's website for most of the day Friday.

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. The original photo showed an unidentified man wearing a green mask who was carrying a weapon while standing in front of a car.

The Seattle Times said Fox's website used that gunman image for the network's coverage of the protest zone, but the image was included in a mashup of other photos from May 30 that depicted smashed windows in downtown Seattle — before the protest zone was set up and in a different neighborhood.
