You don’t have to be a political junkie to identify Sarah Palin. Anyone would recognize her. Anyone, that is, except her employer, Fox News.

On Sunday, the station aired a segment about Palin being “50-50″ on getting into the 2012 campaign. Thinking it was the former Alaska governor, Fox used a picture of 30 Rock’s Tina Fey, starring as Palin, in an SNL skit from 2008. Oops.

Let’s hope the channel gets the real picture next time. A statement from Fox News noted:

“This past Sunday during ‘America’s News Headquarters,’ a graphics error was made during a segment on former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The producer has since been disciplined and an explanation and apology will be made in the same hour next Sunday. Fox News regrets the error.”
