Fox News SVP: Heather Childers’ Tweets on Obama Were ‘A Mistake’

Heather Childers is the latest cable newser to find herself at the center of a social media firestorm.

The Fox News anchor tweeted links to several articles from Godfather Politics earlier this week that caused a stir, including one which questioned whether the Obama campaign had threatened Chelsea Clinton‘s life and one that said Obama “Channels Joseph Stalin, Attacks Supreme Court Justices.”

“The tweets have been addressed with Heather and she understands this was a mistake,” Fox News SVP Michael Clemente told Mediaite Tuesday.

After a flood of responses, Childers was quick to offer an apology. “Here’s the thing folks … that ONE topic sure got a lot of you tweeting,” she wrote. “Why? I apologize if the article offended anyone. Very interesting.” She has since protected her tweets.
