‘Fox & Friends’ Accidentally Airs Graphic Stating Ruth Bader Ginsburg Is Dead

The hosts of “Fox & Friends” on Monday apologized for showing a graphic saying Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead, blaming a control room error.

The graphic, similar to those marking the deaths of other famous figures, briefly showed a photo of Ginsburg and the dates “1933-2019.”

“We need to apologize … A technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of RBG with a date on it,” co-host Steve Doocy said later in the program. “We don’t want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. That was an accident.”

“We apologize, big mistake,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt added.

Ginsburg, 85, is working from home as she continues to recover from surgery to remove cancerous nodules from her lung.

The court announced that there is no evidence of remaining cancer and Ginsburg is expected to return to the bench.

She missed oral arguments this month for the first time in her over 25 years on the bench.

The cancerous nodules were discovered during Ginsburg’s brief hospital stay after falling in her office at the Supreme Court. The health scares have raised concerns among her supporters, especially amid reports that the White House is preparing for her eventual departure or death.
