Fox & Friends Apologizes for Accidental Graphic Saying Ruth Bader Ginsburg is Dead

Fox & Friends apologized on Monday after briefly airing a graphic suggesting that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead.

As the show came back from commercials, they briefly showed a graphic of Ginsburg with the caption 1933-2019. The image was on screen for only a brief period of time before it was dismissed for Ainsley Earhardt‘s upcoming interview on campus culture.

A screen capture of that graphic:

Later in the show, the hosts acknowledged the graphic by saying it was a control room error, and that their understanding is Ginsburg is still recovering from lung surgery, but alive nonetheless.

“We don’t want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. It was an accident,” Steve Doocy said.

“We apologize, big mistake,” Earhardt followed.

Mediaite reached out to the network for comment, and a Fox News spokesperson responded: “This was a technical error that emanated from the graphics team.”

UPDATE: Mediaite explains how this mistake was made.

The only mistake was letting the cat out of the bag. Prove that she is alive!

Interview on the camera should do...

Curious to see if she ever surfaces in the public again. Proof of life would be good.

I have a feeling it's going to be a long weekend............
