Fox News Apologizes for Airing Graphic Implying Ruth Bader Ginsburg Has Died

Compartir

Fox & Friends on Monday apologized after displaying a graphic that made it appear Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died in 2019.

In the graphic that aired briefly on the show after a return from an advert break, Bader Ginsburg is pictured next to the dates 1933-2019, before a segment on "campus culture".

The graphic, which presumably shocked a number of viewers, quickly led to an on-air apology from "Fox & Friends" hosts, who say it was a control room error.

"We apologize, big mistake", co-host Ainsley Earhardt added. "It was an accident", host Steve Doocy later said.

"We need to apologize".

A Fox News spokeswoman said: "This was a technical error that emanated from the graphics team". "We don't want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake".

Ginsburg has dealt with a series of health ailments in recent months.

She missed oral arguments this month for the Supreme Court's first case since her operation. She continues to recover from the surgery, which was dubbed a success.

Ginsburg, 85, missed oral arguments last week for the first time since her appointment to the court in 1993 as she recovers from a pulmonary lobectomy in December, The Huffington Post reported.

Bader Ginsburg has previously battled cancer twice, colon cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer in 2009.

The justice was released from the hospital on the morning of Friday, Nov. 9, where she was admitted on Thursday, Nov. 8. The cancerous growths were discovered while receiving treatment for a November 7 fall in her chambers. She had initially fallen at her office on that Wednesday.
