LA Times Runs Deceptive Image Depicting Gubernatorial Candidate Larry Elder Slapping Woman .

The Los Angeles Times is being accused of running a deceptive photo alongside a headline concerning a recent attack on Republican California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder.

In a Thursday article titled, “LAPD is investigating altercation involving Larry Elder at Venice homeless encampment,” [archived] editors used an LA Times photo in which it looked like Elder is slapping a woman.

“Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder meets supporters during a tour in Venice on Wednesday,” the image is captioned.

That caption, however, doesn’t appear on Twitter, where the photo paired with the headline made it appear as though LAPD was investigating Elder for slapping a woman – which never happened.

The perceived media dishonesty was immediately caught by many online, including the woman in the photo, Soledad Ursua.

Ursua explained the photo was taken just before she was about to hug Elder.

About 20 hours later and after much outcry, the LA Times swapped its photo out, albeit sans an editor’s note, clarification, or any other explanation for the swap.

The photo used now shows the moments after the incident in which Elder was attacked.

Evidently the same photo was used as a main image in a different article, which attempted to downplay the attack many are referring to as a hate crime by saying Elder was merely met with a “hostile reception.”

The attack from violent leftists on Elder came Wednesday as he toured a homeless encampment in Los Angeles.

A woman wearing a pink-haired gorilla mask threw an egg at him and other protesters hit a member of his group in the face multiple times.
