Living up to its very fake news moniker, CNN has stooped to a ridiculous new low by appearing to alter an image of the yearbook page allegedly signed by Judge Roy Moore.
As you may recall, an Alabama woman named Beverly Young Nelson has alleged that Moore sexually assault her in the late 1970s, when she would have around 16 years old.
Judge Moore has vigorously denied the claims.
As proof of Roy Moore’s interest in her, Nelson produced a high school yearbook, which she asserted the judge signed.
The signature read, “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House.”
However, differences with the signature and Moore’s last name in particular, raised speculation over whether the signature was indeed authentic.
On Monday, CNN posted an image of the message written on the yearbook page.
It looked to be written in two different shades of ink.
Beverly Young Nelson said Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore wrote a message in her yearbook in December 1977 that said, "To a sweeter more beautiful girl, I could not say, 'Merry Christmas.'"

On Wednesday, however, CNN again posted the image, this time with a seemingly different image of the page. In that image, all of the words appeared to be written in black ink.

It would seem that CNN altered the image to make it look more uniform, which appears to be an attempt to discredit those who are questioning the validity of Judge Moore’s signature.
If CNN were a real news organization, it would be working to uncover what, if anything, was behind the two different shades of ink. Instead, the network apparently used photoshop or some other image manipulation program to make the message look consistent.
The two different shades of ink could be a clue — but not to fake news CNN.
This is why President Trump, and everyone else, refers to the network as fake news.
Questions concerning the legitimacy of Nelson’s account have already surfaced, and for CNN to doctori an image like this certainly doesn’t help Nelson’s cause — unless she’s out to smear Moore’s reputation weeks before an election.
Apparently, attempting to ruin a Republican before an election is a cause CNN can get behind.
