Trump campaign uses unauthorized and altered Gazette photo to criticize Biden

A new ad from President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign uses a manipulated version of a news photo taken in Coralville by a Gazette photographer to falsely say it shows presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden hiding in his Delaware basement.

The image, which was used without The Gazette’s permission, was taken by Photo Editor Liz Martin in December 2019 when Biden was visiting the home of Coralville Mayor John Lundell.

About three dozen supporters and journalists were at the event, Martin said, and Biden sat on the floor to give someone else his seat.

The Gazette’s policy forbids the use of Gazette news photos for any political advertising. Neither Martin nor Diana Pesek, who handles the newspaper’s licensing requests, gave the campaign permission to republish the image.

Original photo:

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden sits on the floor Dec. 27, 2019, during a Holiday Bowl watch party at Coralville Mayor John Lundell’s home in Coralville. A new re-election ad for President Donald Trump manipulated the image to falsely say Biden was hiding in his Delaware basement. (Liz Martin/The Gazette)

Altered photo:

This screenshot of a video published on Facebook by the Donald Trump campaign for president shows a manipulated photo taken by Gazette photojournalist Liz Martin in December 2019. The photo was taken at the home of the Coralville mayor during a Holiday Bowl watch party. It was digitally manipulated and misrepresented as being in the Delaware basement of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
