Hilarious, super-ominous photoshop on the front of fn dot com right now:



I'd like to suggest that this is a bit misleading a thing for a major "journalism" outlet to be up to, but their retort might be that it's of so obvious poor quality that no one would think it's a candid capture, even though the emotional intent is quite clear.

Fox News will keep talking about Hillary Clinton long after she's cold in the ground. It's so convenient for them.

WSJ, owned by the same guy, has reported on and corrected the recent "errors" on FN

fact checking - they should try it.

I also love how (and this is not just a Fox thing), when a news outlet runs a story that they think is Bad News for the subject of it, they always pick the same kind of photo: that head-down, saggy-eyed, mushy-chinned pose that they must have vast archives of. Of course the photo was taken who-knows-when. So it's basically just a headshot to identify the principal, but one that imagines their shamed reaction to the coverage they're getting.

It probably makes more sense than running:
