The propaganda is relentless.
Thanks to social media, the American people are finally seeing mainstream media outlets for what they really are: They’re nothing but propaganda machines for the far-left, including the Democrat Party.
This was made abundantly clear this week when social media users exposed NBC for purposefully editing photos of trans UPenn swimmer Lia Thomas.
NBC quietly altered the photos of Thomas, making him appear airbrushed and feminine.
A photojournalist recently blasted the “news” network on a “Today Show” appearance.
The Today Show subsequently came under stark criticism for using photos that were noticeably softened or “airbrushed” during its March 17 report on the trans swimmer as Thomas was competing at the NCAA championships in Georgia.
Here is the report:
Watch how giddy NBC's 'Today' show is about Lia Thomas crushing the competition at the NCAA D1 women's swimming and diving championships.

Now, a photojournalist who took some of the photos is decrying NBC for altering her photos.
“I pride myself on providing authentic images as a photojournalist,” Erica Denhoff said.
Denhoff, a student-athlete and graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, said that she agrees with critics who say NBC altered the photos and added, “It’s really important as photojournalists that we transmit authentic photos that have not been altered.
“When I first noticed the airbrushing on the segment referenced, I thought something was honestly wrong with the video. But then, I watched it again and thought, ‘Wait a minute, this appears to be intentional. Lia’s features are softened,’” Denhoff exclaimed.
Denhoff said once she learned of the criticism, she compared her actual photos to the shots used by NBC and saw a noticeable difference. Her images were softened and blurred by the TV network.
Denhoff confirmed that some of the photos used in the segment were her photos and added, “I’m surprised and disappointed that Today altered my image of Lia for this particular news segment.”
Last week, social media users slammed NBC for using the softened photos:

Forget Soviet Russia, forget North Korea, forget China, forget Russia, forget Ukraine — THIS is pure-bred American propaganda at its finest.
The level to which media operatives will sell you a bed of lies in an effort to push a left-wing ideological agenda has reached astronomical. They must be regarded as our Enemy No. 1.
