Baltimore Gets The Palm Tree Treatment

During the unrest in Baltimore, a local Fox News affiliate posted this picture (courtesy of ReverbPress):

There's a problem with the photo though.  It's not from Baltimore. And it's not from 2015.

From the article:
This fake Baltimore photo is from the 2014 Venezuela riots. That’s right: Fox posted a photo taken around 2,000 miles away and claimed that it was in the center of Baltimore.
I know I can't be the only one that is reminded of the way Faux News covered the 2011 protests in Madison:

Madison, Wisconsin. Palm Trees. Short sleeves. In February.

The saddest part is that not only do people buy into this propaganda, they deny the truth even when confronted with it.  That should be the definition of insanity.
