FNC Apologizes To Conyers Again: “We Regret This Mistake”

By Brian 

FNC’s Martha MacCallum read a detailed apology about the Jefferson/Conyers mix-up on The Live Desk this afternoon, one day after Conyers said this apology wasn’t sufficient.

Coming back from a commercial, MacCallum said:

“On Monday in our report on the indictment of William Jefferson, in errror we aired some video of Congressman John Conyers of Michigan.

That tape was labeled ‘a meeting about William Jefferson’ and it was mistaken as video portraying Mr. Jefferson. We regret this mistake. We in no way meant to suggest there was any connection between the Jefferson indictment and Congressman Conyers.

We have extended our apology privately to the congressman, and we do so here as well.”
