'We Made A Mistake': Laura Ingraham Apologizes For Fani Willis Graphic Flub

The Fox News host acknowledged the lawyer mix-up after airing the image earlier on her show.

Fox NewsLaura Ingraham issued an on-air apology Friday after the network bungled a graphic that was supposed to feature Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis across from Nathan Wade, a prosecutor who resigned from the Georgia election interference case against former President Donald Trump.

The host had appeared on screen next to a graphic that showed a picture of Willis in one half of a broken heart, while a photo of attorney Terrence Bradley, Wade’s former law partner and divorce attorney, was shown in the other half of the heart. Judge Scott McAfee’s picture appeared in the middle of the graphic.

Wade, who had a romantic relationship with Willis, resigned after McAfee ruled Friday that the prosecutor had to remove himself from the case or else Willis had to step away from it.

“Now a note about a graphic we showed at the top of the show,” Ingraham said on Fox News. “It was supposed to be of Fani Willis and Nathan Wade, but accidentally we broadcast Terrence Bradley. That was obviously not intentional. We made a mistake, and we are sorry for that.”

Social media users suggested that Fox News’ mix-up could have stemmed from Wade and Bradley both being Black.

The network has previously flubbed on-air graphics, looping in a photo of singer Patti LaBelle for an Aretha Franklin tribute back in 2018 and showing a map of the Middle East that labeled Iraq as Egypt.
