Today on Happening Now, anchor Jon Scott responded to a Media Matters report that FNC copied a press release from the Senate Republican Communications Center during yesterday’s broadcast. The segment included the same typo (an incorrect date) in a full-screen graphic as there was in the original Republican release.
