CBS News was mocked after Twitter users accused the network of trying to pass off “Latinos for Trump” as Biden supporters during a segment about Hispanic voters.
The blunder came shortly after Joe Biden’s cringeworthy pandering to a Hispanic audience by playing “Despacito” from his cell phone at a campaign event.
The brouhaha erupted after an eagle-eyed Twitter user remarked: “CBS stole a photo from Latinos for Trump in Phoenix and tagged it as a Biden event.”
In the CBS screenshot, a group of exuberant Hispanic voters are pictured cheerfully waving their hands and clapping at a “Latinos for Trump” event in Phoenix.
The CBS photo caption reads: “Biden Pitches Latino Voters During Florida Campaign Stop.”
In the CBS News screenshot, the Trump supporters are holding signs that read: “Make America Great Again” and wearing caps with the words “I love Trump.”
Trump supporters reacted by lampooning CBS News and accusing it of promoting a false narrative to help Joe Biden.
One person tweeted: “The MAGA signs give it away but the average Democrat won’t even notice.”
Another quipped: “What’s the purpose of all this fakery? Why do they have to lie to convince people that he has a lot of people there?”
A Twitter user responded: “Because they are planning to steal the vote with fraudulent ballots flooding the ballots. Barely anyone shows up for Biden speeches.”
The screenshots don’t lie. Many Trump supporters said the CBS News chyrons looked deceptive.
CBS News host Norah O’Donnell denied accusations that her network had tried to deceive viewers.
Please listen to the piece. In fact, we reported that President Trump HAS CUT INTO BIDEN'S ADVANTAGE BY WOOING *CONSERVATIVE* LATINOS.

Twitter users reacted by reminding O’Donnell that CBS News got busted in March for hyping the coronavirus crisis in the United States by using alarming hospital footage from Italy.

Other Twitter users pointed out that CBS News has repeatedly been biased against President Trump.
This week, CBS and other mainstream media outlets seemingly downplayed the historic peace accord the president engineered between Israel, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates.
Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize for his role in brokering the unprecedented Mideast peace agreement.
Two days later, the entire Trump Administration was nominated for a second Nobel Peace Prize for promoting peace between Serbia and breakaway republic Kosovo.
Meanwhile, climate-change fanatic Joe Biden waved to an empty field while disembarking from a gas-guzzling private jet at a Florida airport.
There are now two weeks before the first of three presidential debates. The first debate is scheduled for September 29.
In August, President Trump called for drug tests to be administered before the debate. Trump cited Biden’s curious performance in his final Democratic primary debate in March for fueling suspicions that he may have taken drugs to improve his coherence.
Biden has been dogged by rampant speculation over his flailing mental health, which was spotlighted by his numerous gaffes on the campaign trail.
Yesterday, Biden reacted by trashing President Trump’s proposal for a drug test.
“I’m looking forward to the debate and he’s a fool,” Biden told WFLA. “The comments are just foolish. Get ready, Mr. President. Here I come!”
President Trump responded by tweeting a video of Biden promising voters: “If you elect me, your taxes are gonna be raised — not cut.”
