Fox News Uses Photo Of Kamala Harris To Depict a Murder Suspect, Then Apologize After Being Busted

To say that Fox News misinforms their audience is an understatement. They constantly lie to their viewers and most of the time get away with it. But on Tuesday, the right-wing network was forced to publicly apologize and issue a correction after it used a photograph of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) to depict a murder suspect in Utah.

While reporting on a shooting at the University of Utah that left one female student dead, Fox News informed viewers that the suspected shooter, a registered sex offender named Melvin Rowland, had already been found dead in a Salt Lake City church after being chased there by police.

However, instead of showing Rowland’s mugshot, they decided to flash a photo of the Democratic Senator, as you’ll see in the video below.

Shortly after the report aired, Fox News’ Jillian Mele went on air to issue a formal correction for making it look like Harris was suspected of killing a college student.

“In an earlier version of this story, we showed you the wrong video,” she admitted. “We showed you pictures of Sen. Kamala Harris instead of Melvin Rowland’s mugshot. We apologize for that error.”
