CNN airs photo of Biden and son with Washington Redskins logo removed from son's hat

The NFL team retired the polarizing name and logo in July

CNN appears to have altered a widely-seen photograph of Joe Biden with his young son to remove the logo of the Washington Redskins.

The Democratic nominee and former vice president initially shared the photo in June to commemorate Father's Day.

However, when CNN featured the photograph in its Monday night special "Fight for the White House: Joe Biden's Long Journey," the Redskins logo was removed from the hat.

CNN did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

In July, the Washington Football Team announced it would be retiring the nickname "Redskins" which had long been criticized as being offensive to Native Americans.
