Or Print > Print to file > pdf

Like you said, either way they're fucked. I liked the use of Archive sites like archive.is though because you knew it was a legit archive and nothing was edited on that copy

The problem with that is that it’s not an impartial third party. Anyone can edit the HTML of any page, either saved locally or within the browser itself (for the sake of a screenshot), and so it’s far less reputable than a timestamped reproduction of the page’s history.

Do you have more "proof" than an image that originated on 8ch?

People in the comments here already tried to find the original and can't.

The Wayback Machine is very anti-Trump, and moved to Canada after he was elected.

Can't find any verification that NPR is doing this, either.

I give it a couple of days until someone has a way around their "blocking of archive services". Do they not know what a screenshot is? I mean come on. This will do nothing more than cause the creation of more programs that show the truth to the world.

A couple of days? How about less than an hour. Archive the google cache of their page.

Now, they won't block Google. They can't, because it would destroy their business. The cache is copied directly from their site, and so is just as good as the original article for proving that's what Vice said.

This won't work for videos or images, but if they reduce themselves to just that they turn into a pure clickbait site, which also destroys their current business. They don't have the drive or memeology required to survive on images alone.

This is yet another flare fired off the sinking wreck of Leftist Media.

People see these flares, and those with an ounce of self respect just chuckle and row onwards to VOAT and Shit-post Island. There they will find Coconut-Mai Tai's and Goat-Milk White Russians sure to put hair on any pirate's chest (which is not filled with Gold but bitcoins, it is said).

Well, that is pure Orwellian logic right there. In other words,

because we noble censorship promoting Communists here at VICE like to redact or change what we wrote once we get exposed as fake news, which happens so often that we are literally ashamed to look at our own image on reflective surfaces, we will now prevent our very words and deceptions from easily being recorded and then thrown back in our own faces.

And we do this because you are racisssssss!

Does anyone have a link to this post? I can't find it, nor can I find any discussions about it. The Vice Facebook page doesn't have it, and no one has quoted it online.

This is fake as fuck.

I tried archiving on two different services. It doesn't work anymore. I guess that's just a coincidence. Moving along.

It seems the post is fake (no one's been able to find it, and it originated in an 8ch thread) but the issue is real. The picture is a good attention-getter...but it backfires if anyone starts to ask for proof that they posted it.
