The Associated Press chimed in Wednesday to spread word of a doctored image that’s been making the rounds. There are a lot of doctored images making the rounds every day, but this one appeared to show an anti-fascist activist beating a police officer.

The AP helpfully explained that the antifa “is comprised of far-left-leaning militant groups that resist neo-Nazis and white supremacists.” Unfortunately for some of those who’ve been brutalized by members of the antifa, the movement’s definition of neo-Nazis is awfully broad, often including Trump supporters in general.

CNN’s Jake Tapper on Wednesday also made mention of a couple of journalists who were attacked by counter-protesters at last weekend’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va.

It’s not entirely clear why the AP was anxious to clear up a Photoshop job that made the antifa look bad, but as Twitchy reported, the effort is in full swing to rehabilitate the image of the anti-fascists, with some comparing them to World War II veterans.

Let’s hope so.
