Samantha Bee spotted a glaring typo on a Fox News tweet about Wednesday’s bomb deliveries. Someone with the keys to the Twitter account mistakenly wrote ‘white power’ instead of ‘white powder.’ In a clip from Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, the host points out the odd autocorrect while suggesting there’s only one way for Siri to default to the racist catchphrase.
Fox News has since deleted a breaking news tweet that read, “Suspicious package sent to CNN contained ‘some kind’ of ‘white power.’”
The conservative media outlet has had their fair share of mistakes, inaccuracies, and abusive hosts. That may be why Fox News was recently polled to be less reliable than CNN and MSNBC. Known more for its punditry than its ‘fair and balanced’ reporting, the cable news network is frequently a punchline for late night hosts. “Fox News tried to do a journalism,” Bee joked when referencing the embarrassing typo.
The TBS late night weekly recently enjoyed a facelift with a new set design and opening credits sequence. The network is calling it Full Frontal 2.0. Much deserved for a show that was nominated for eight Emmy Awards this year. Full Frontal with Samantha Bee airs on Wednesdays on TBS at 10:30 p.m. ET.
