Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s producers are being accused of editing a photo of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) that was aired during a segment of ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ on Wednesday.

In a since deleted tweet, Daily Beast contributing editor Justin Baragona tweeted an image of of Ocasio-Cortez featured on the show with the caption, “So it appears that Tucker’s producers added ‘googly eyes’ to AOC in this image.”

However, the photo was taken of Ocasio-Cortez in May 2018 and was not edited.

Baragona acknowledged his mistake and took down the tweet.

“Taking down this tweet as the image of AOC has been out there since at least May 2018,” he wrote.

“Anyway, I’ll take the L and the addition to the list @SirajAHashmi,” he added.

In a separate post, Baragona wrote, “Every day you log onto Twitter, you hope to get through it without being it. Tonight, I was it. And I absolutely deserved to be.”

“Word of advice — if you don’t want to be IT, make sure you don’t send out factually inaccurate tweets that can be easily verified and debunked,” he added.
