Fox News labels Elie Wiesel “Holocaust Winner”

Pin it

So it's pretty on the table at this point that Fox News plays fast and loose with its facts — the hallmark of any good news outlet, of course — but this is a new level. In a segment on human rights last week, Fox and Friends accidentally labeled Holocaust survivor,  Elie Wiesel as "Holocaust Winner." Oof.

In all fairness, the mistake was likely made in an attempt to combine the titles "Holocaust survivor" and "Nobel Prize Winner" for Wiesel's appearance, but still… really not good. The mistake was corrected quickly, and comes at about :50 in the above clip.
