Fox News Mixes Up Mitch Daniels, Jerry Sandusky

Posted: Updated:

Fox News made a BIG mistake while discussing the Jerry Sandusky trial on Saturday.

While the hosts were explaining the verdict, the network accidentally showed stock footage of Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels.

"We had a technical problem and we were showing Gov. Mitch Daniels in the video when we were talking about Jerry Sandusky, so we apologize for that," anchor Uma Pemmaraju said.

Sandusky was on Friday found guilty on 45 counts of child abuse. His sentence will be announced within the coming months.

This is hardly Fox's first case of mistaken identity. Last year, the network accidentally aired footage of Tina Fey impersonating Sarah Palin instead of Palin herself.
