On Friday, the Virginian-Pilot broke the news that a yearbook photo for Virginia’s Democratic governor, Ralph Northam, had a man in blackface standing next to a man in a Ku Klux Klan hood.

On Saturday, Northam held a press conference where he claimed that the photos he had apologized for Friday were not him and that he would not resign.

The statement was immediately met with scorn on the internet, where calls for his resignation were renewed.

CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter and Washington Examiner correspondent Susan Ferrechio tangled on BBC radio on Wednesday during a discussion about how conservative media have hyped a political attack on Joe Biden's son.

During a panel discussion that included the corruption allegations against Biden and his son, Ferrechio complained that most mainstream media outlets have not publicized the report, which was first published by the New York Post.

However, many Twitter users noticed that one photograph showed Stahl opening the binder – revealing a blank page.

"Are there Nobel prizes for most humiliating self-owns? If so, Trump definitely deserves one for presenting Lesley Stahl with a blank book and claiming it's some huge gotcha moment," remarked author Steve Silberman.
