The crew of “Fox & Friends” apologized on air Monday after accidentally running a graphic announcing that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died.
“We need to apologize,” Steve Doocy said moments later. “A technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of Ruth Bader Ginsburg with a date on it. We don’t want to make it seem anything other than 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,” the network said later in a statement.
85-year-old Ginsburg recently underwent surgery for cancerous nodules that were found in her lungs.
The growths were only discovered after Ginsburg underwent a pre-operative scan when she broke a rib after a fall in November.
Her exact condition and prognosis currently remains unclear, though experts told CNBC that they expected Ginsburg would make a full recover and return to the bench in February.
