Fox News labels Nancy Pelosi as a Republican
Fox News on Wednesday identified as Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi as a Republican.
During a the 10 a.m. ET hour, Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum and reporter Peter Doocy broke the news that Pelosi would be remaining as the minority leader while an on-screen graphic indicated that the California Democrat belonged to the other party.
“Awaiting Announcement From House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (R-CA),” the chyron read. The incorrect graphic continued to cycle on the lower-third of the screen throughout the two and half minute report.
Fox News has a history of chyron flubs: They have incorrectly labeled disgraced South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, disgraced Florida Congressman Mark Foley, moderate Rhode Island Republican candidate Lincoln Chafee and Arizona Sen. John McCain all as Democrats.
