Fox News "mistakes" Patti LaBelle for Aretha Franklin

You had one job, Fox News. ONE JOB.

And it's not like they didn't have time to get it right. We were told that Miss Franklin's extraordinary life was coming to a close at the beginning of the week. Although, I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise that they think all black women look alike.

UPDATE: Fox VP Jessica Santostefano apologizes. — Ed.

“We sincerely apologize to Aretha Franklin’s family and friends. 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.”
