Fox News broadcasts horrific visual claiming Justice Ginsburg is dead
Fox and Friends has a lot of explaining to do.
On Monday they released a graphic on their program claiming that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead.
Except, she's not. She's alive and well.
Hosts Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt issued this apologize later on in the show:
“We need to apologize. A technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of Ruth Bader Ginsburg with a date on it,” Doocy said. “We don’t want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. That was an accident. We believe she is still at home recovering from surgery."
Why is the graphics team making images about her possible death when she's still alive? It's all just too revealing. What else do they have cooking up over there in that newsroom?
Below is a short video of the graphic, released via Twitter.
Ginsburg, 85, is still recovering after having a procedure to surgically remove cancerous nodules from inside her lung but the good news is that doctors say she is no cancer free and can return to her work up on the bench in just a few weeks.
In the meantime, Justice Ginsburg is still reviewing cases from home and is able to function just fine.
Ginsburg says she plans on staying on the Supreme Court at least another five years, even despite all her past health issues. That will give a Democratic president (should they win the next election), the ability to appoint her replacement.
