Fox & Friends hosts apologized Monday after briefly airing a graphic that appeared to suggest Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died. The graphic which showed a photo of Ginsburg along with the dates 1933-2019 appeared briefly before a segment on campus culture. Co-hosts Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt apologized for the error later in the segment. “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 apologize, big mistake,” Earhardt added. "This was a technical error that emanated from the graphics team," a Fox News spokesperson confirmed in a statement to USA TODAY. Ginsburg, 85, underwent a pulmonary lobectomy last month to remove two nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung discovered during tests to diagnose and treat rib fractures suffered in a fall on Nov. 7. The court said in a Jan. 11 statement that she had no remaining signs of cancer and her recovery is “on track.” The 25-year veteran of the nation's highest court and a cultural icon among liberals and proponents of women's rights has been closely monitored by those on the left and right for her health.
