Fox & Friends misidentifies Hispanic woman Senate candidate as black woman Senate candidate
Fox & Friends on Tuesday confused two women of color who are running for the U.S. Senate in two different states.
During an interview with Nevada Republican Senate candidate Joe Heck, host Steve Doocy noted the importance of Hispanic voters in the state.
“Republican Representative Joe Heck takes on [Sen. Harry Reid’s] hand-picked successor, Catherine Cortez Masto,” Doocy explained.
However, the on-screen graphic of Reid and the two candidates used video of California Senate candidate Kamala Harris, who is black, instead of Masto, who is Hispanic.
