Fox News apologizes after showing graphic suggesting Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died

Hosts of a Fox News show on Monday apologized for a graphic briefly shown on screen that suggested Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died, Mediaite reported.

The graphic showed a photo of Ginsburg, now recovering from surgery for lung cancer, with the dates 1933 — the year of her birth — and 2019. It aired briefly after a commercial break.

“We need to apologize,” host Steve Doocy said, The Washington Examiner reported. “That was a mistake, that was an accident. We believe she is still at home recovering from surgery.”

“This was a technical error that emanated from the graphics team.” a Fox News spokesperson wrote in an email.
