Fox News Apologizes For Identifying Sanford As Democrat

On Wednesday, a Fox News chyron mistakenly identified Republican South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford as a Democrat during his press conference announcing his extramarital affair.

At about 2:30 Thursday afternoon, Trace Gallagher, of Fox News' "Live Desk," offered this on-air apology:

"We just want to make a correction to something we put up on the screen during our coverage of the governor's press conference yesterday. We briefly identified Governor Sanford as a Democrat. He is, of course, a Republican and we apologize for getting it wrong."
