Anchor Mistakenly Announces Death of Hillary Clinton

screen-shot-2016-09-13-at-1-41-29-pmOh no.

On Sunday, Hillary Clinton had very public bout of illness. Her supporters and detractors were equally invested in her health and finding out what had happened. ABC7’s Joe Torres did not make that easy for New Yorkers watching the evening news.

“We begin with the breaking news about Hillary Clinton’s death,” he announced at the top of the hour before he and Sandra Bookman plowed on into the discussion on Clinton’s sickness.

Okay. Just to clarify for everyone, Hillary Clinton is not dead. She is alive. She makes her own public appearances. She is very much alive, well, and still the Democratic nominee for President.

Carry on.
