George Wallace Flap

Hayes Issues Terse Correction on George Wallace Flap


MSNBC host Chris Hayes delivered a terse correction on a graphic that misidentified former Alabama Governor George Wallace as a Republican from last evening’s broadcast Wednesday night:
CHRIS HAYES: [...] First a quick and important correction. On last night’s program we played a sound bite of former Alabama Governor George Wallace. The graphic at the bottom of the screen depicted Wallace as Republican, when in fact he was quite famously a Democrat. We regret the error, and we’ll be right back.
The embarrassing mishap comes amid a severe ratings skid for Hayes, with total viewers down 32 percent from the same hour hour in 2012.
