This past weekend, Fox News “mistakenly posted a picture of Tina Fey impersonating former Alaska governor Sarah Palin” in a report on Palin, The Huffington Post reported.
The Fox News report, entitled “Tracking The Movements of Some 2012 Contenders,” mentioned Palin as a possible candidate in 2012, though she has yet to declare a candidacy. The report cited an “exclusive” Fox News interview with Palin, who also works for Fox News. In the interview, Palin said she felt “50-50 about a 2012 run.”
The image first appeared in a 2008 Saturday Night Live skit parodying the vice presidential debate.
“This past Sunday during ‘America’s News Headquarters,’ a graphics error was made during a segment on former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The producer has since been disciplined and an explanation and apology will be made in the same hour next Sunday. Fox News regrets the error.”
