During his news conference this afternoon, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford was identified as a (D) on Fox News. Not only is he not a (D) he was, until today, the head of the RGA – Republican Governor’s Association. The (D) on the lower third banner appeared for about 7 seconds. The banner was then switched to quotes Sanford was giving before the correct (R) designation was inserted.

And this is not the first time this has happened. In Oct. 2006, Fox News mislabeled disgraced Florida GOP congressman Mark Foley as a Democrat.
