The ABC News division of the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) has used a fake image to promote its first interview with US President Donald Trump.

The image, allegedly showing Trump in the Oval Office, with the caption “No Questions Off Limits,” was earlier published in the New Yorker magazine in September 2016. The photo accompanied an article, entitled ‘President Trump’s First Term’. Its credit reads: “Photo Illustration by Ji Lee; Source: Pete Souza / White House (Office); Tom Williams / CQ Roll Call / AP (Trump).”

The fake photo was showed on Tuesday night and was aimed to promote the first interview with Trump, since he took office, for Wednesday’s nightly news.

Apparently, ABC didn’t realize that it was photoshopped or another outlet’s work.

Reportedly, later, the photo has been replaced. ABC has admitted the mistake of its marketing team and apologized.
