France3, a French media outlet, has altered a photograph of a protest to change an anti-Macron sign into a pro-Macron sign

France3, a French media outlet, has altered a photograph of a political protest sign to make the message on the sign the exact opposite of what is actually on the sign.

The original sign (if translated to English) says, “Macron Resign.”

But France3 removed the word “resign,” thus changing the meaning of the sign from anti-Macron to pro-Macron.

A spokesperson from France3 said this alteration was due to “human error.”

I’m not buying that. How do you “accidentally” use Photoshop (or whatever they were using) to cover up part of a sign?

Here’s the original, unaltered photograph of the sign (all photos are from this link):




And here’s the altered photograph of the sign:




And here are the two versions side by side
