BUSTED: Fox News forced to apologize after using photo of Kamala Harris to depict a murder suspect

Published

on

Fox News on Tuesday was forced to issue a correction and apology after it used a photograph of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) to depict a murder suspect in Utah.

While reporting on a shooting at the University of Utah that left one female student dead, Fox News informed viewers that the suspected shooter, a registered sex offender named Melvin Rowland, had already been found dead in a Salt Lake City church after being chased there by police.

Instead of showing Rowland’s mugshot, however, they flashed a picture of Harris up on the screen, as seen in the video below.

Shortly after the report aired, Fox News’ Jillian Mele went on air to issue a formal correction for making it look like Harris was suspected of killing a college student.

“In an earlier version of this story, we showed you the wrong video,” she admitted. “We showed you pictures of Sen. Kamala Harris instead of Melvin Rowland’s mugshot. We apologize for that error.”

Dan Helm, a candidate for Supervisor of Elections in Pinellas County, sent a letter to the State Attorney of Orange County outlining the allegations.

"I write to inform you that, Derek Chauvin, the police officer who killed George Floyd in Minnesota, voted in Orange County Floriday in 2016 and 2018 as a registered Republican," Helm wrote to Aramis Ayala.

He said he discovered the information in the voter file.

"While living in Minnesota, working there, paying taxes there, Derek Chauvin cannot claim residency in Orange County. His home, residency and where he intends to live is in Minnesota, not Florida," he charged. "This is a violation of our election laws, specifically Fla. Stat. 104.011 (2)."
