KCPQ 13 is the local Fox Network affiliate in Seattle, WA.
Last night, viewers in the Pacific Northwest noticed some rather odd visuals of President Trump during the KCPQ 10 o’clock news.
Phone calls were made to a popular radio talk show host; Todd Herman on KTTH 770 AM in Seattle.
Herman’s team performed a side-by-side comparison of the KCPQ 13 video to a raw video of Trump’s speech on CNN.
That comparison revealed that the KCPQ video contained a loop of the President licking his lips slowly and repeatedly. It also appeared that someone distorted the President’s face and added an orange tone to his skin.
The response from KCPQ?
“We are investigating this to determine what happened. This does not meet our editorial standards and we regret if it is seen as portraying the President in a negative light. The editor responsible for editing the footage is being placed on leave while we investigate further.”
