MSNBC apologizes after using photo of white nationalist Richard Spencer when talking about former Navy secretary
MSNBC host Joy Reid issued a correction on Sunday after an image of white nationalist Richard Spencer was mistakenly broadcast during her cable news segment while discussing former Navy secretary Richard Spencer.
Reid, who hosts “AM Joy,” tweeted video of her issuing the “very big correction” later during the segment around noon on Sunday.
“I want to make a quick correction. This is a pretty big correction. Earlier in the segment as we were talking about former Navy Secretary Richard Spencer, we mistakenly showed the wrong image of white supremacist Richard Spencer,” she said in the clip.
