Fox News airs RBG “memorial” graphic

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is alive and well following surgery to remove a cancerous mass from her lung, according to the latest reports. But this week, Fox News showed a “memorial” graphic that strongly suggested she had died.

A host later apologized for the mistake:

“We need to apologize … A technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of RBG with a date on it. […] We don’t want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. That was an accident.”

Justice Ginsburg’s passing would be major news, and would trigger a major shift on the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, Ginsburg has made no indication that she plans to step down following her health issues.
