Photoshop Gone Bad, ABC News’s Trump Interview Promo

By Chris Ariens 

ABC News is taking some heat for a snowy photoshopped image promoting their Donald Trump interview airing tonight.

The image shows a pensive Trump looking out the Oval Office window to a snowy South Lawn. But it hasn’t snowed in D.C. in weeks.

“When the marketing team created the promo, they included the wrong image by mistake,” an ABC News spokesperson says. “They updated it with a new photo as soon as they realized the error. We regret the mistake.”


What’s more, Politico reports the photo is identical to a photo illustration used by The New Yorker for a story published last September.

The promo aired briefly on the network. But in a time of heightened awareness of what is fact and what isn’t this mistake comes at an inopportune time for ABC News. David Muir‘s interview with Trump airs in a one-hour special tonight at 10 p.m. ET.
