Earlier this morning Fox & Friends Briefly Aired a graphic that incorrectly suggested Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is Dead.
According to Breitbart, Upon returning from a commercial break, a graphic of the 85-year-old justice briefly came onscreen with the dates “1933-2019,” before a teaser of co-host Ainsley Earhardt’s upcoming interview about college culture appeared.

“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 show. “We don’t want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. That was an accident.”
“We apologize, big mistake,” added Earhardt.
The latest news that anyone has is Ginsburg is currently recovering from a December 21 surgery to remove cancerous growths from her left lung. No furhter updates have been given.
