Rachel Maddow Apologizes To Ron Paul For Graphic Snafu (VIDEO)

Rachel Maddow apologized to GOP candidate Ron Paul for what she called "an honest mistake."

During Maddow's show on Friday, producers used a graphic of the Republican candidates' heads to accompany a segment. While Maddow discussed Paul's candidacy, his face was mistakenly left out of the image.

At the end of her Monday night show, Maddow apologized for the graphic snafu and addressed a noticeable new graphic that was on display throughout the entire program: Paul's head floating in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

Speaking to her viewers, Maddow said, "In penance, I hope you have enjoyed a little extra time with this tiny Ron Paul head throughout tonight's show. We'll be back tomorrow without Ron Paul's disembodied head...Goodnight."
