In honoring The Queen of Soul, the cable news network used an image in the background of Patti LaBelle performing for President Obama on PBS' Women of Soul: In Performance at the White House special, which aired in 2014. “We sincerely apologize to Aretha Franklin’s family and friends," Fox News spokesperson Jessica Santostefano explained in a statement. "Our intention was to honor the icon using a secondary image of her performing with Patti LaBelle in the full screen graphic, but the image of Ms. Franklin was obscured in that process, which we deeply regret." The problem is that LaBelle and Franklin never performed together on the special. Franklin did perform at the same event. When EW inquired about the second mistake, Fox News was unable to explain why its statement of apology was erroneous.

All he really did — regardless of what he meant — was express a still shockingly common opinion among many showrunners: 'Inclusion' is a nuisance, minority writers are a burden to hire and promote, and experienced minority writers are nigh-impossible to find."
