Rebuke to Jerry Falwell Jr.'s Comment to Politico's "'Someone's Gotta Tell the Freakin' Truth':

Source: WorldRedeye

Miami Beach, FL – September 10, 2019 – For 21 years, I have maintained an impeccable reputation for documenting Miami Beach’s storied social scene.

We wholly reject Jerry Falwell Jr.’s baseless allegation in yesterday’s Politico report by Brandon Ambrosino that one of our pictures was “photo-shopped” or manipulated in any fashion.

We, in fact, did not know Politico’s purpose for licensing the image and were as surprised as anyone to discover that Mr. Falwell was among the partygoers we photographed on July 19, 2014 at WALL Lounge.

As a result, we reviewed all the images we have from the event and discovered an additional four photos that include Mr. Falwell and two more of his son.

context:

On July 19, 2014, popular Swedish DJ John Dahlbäck performed at Wall, a nightclub in Miami Beach, Fla. That night, the club happened to have a photographer on-site to grab candid shots of the revelry. The photos were shared online by World Red Eye, an outlet that documents Miami’s nightlife scene, and Jerry and Trey Falwell were visible in some of the pictures—the outlet identified Trey by name.

In a statement on August 21, Jerry Falwell denied the existence of any photo of him at the club. “There was no picture snapped of me at WALL nightclub or any other nightclub,” Falwell wrote. “I’m sure you already knew that though.”

When told that I had obtained a photo of him for this article, Falwell said I was “terribly mistaken.” “If you show me the picture, I can probably help you out,” he wrote. “I think you are making some incorrect assumptions, or have been told false things or are seeing something that was photo--shopped.”

After I sent him the photo, as well as a photo of Trey at Wall, Falwell responded: “I never asked anyone to get rid of any pictures on the internet of me and I never have seen the picture you claim is of me below. If the person in the picture is me, it was likely photo-shopped.” In a second email sent 23 minutes later, Falwell wrote: “But the bigger question, Brandon, is why would I want a picture like that taken down if I had seen it?”

1. Out Clubbing To Find A New Paramour?

What's the matter, Jerry -- getting tired of the pool boy?

3. I shouldn't love this story.

But I do.

The younger Ms. Falwell has a cute clubbing outfit. Almost like she left her Liberty University clothes at home.

And are we sure Mrs. Jerry Falwell wasn’t there? That dark hair lady near Jerry (on his right) wearing glow ring on head could be a match.

I’d bet a three layer chocolate cake that Beckilu is there, too! What, the Queen of Liberty U stayed back at the hotel?

Yeah, no.

8. Not a duplicate.

Yesterday's article was from Politico. Politico had gotten a pic that was originally put online by the outlet "World Red Eye" (whose photographer had taken the pic). Politico posted their article detailing the response from Falwell when he was asked for comment. Falwell stated that the pic was photo-shopped, or at least was most likely to have been.

This post today is World Red Eye's response to the photo-shopping allegation -- plus more pics of the Falwells that they found in their set of pictures from that event.

7. The answer to your bigger question, Jerry Jr., is

'because you're a crooked degenerate partyboy scammer, disguising yourself as a uber moral holy roller to make big money and push reichwing politics.'

Is this asshole skull & bones, too, like his dad?
