MSNBC Host Apologizes After Falsely Reporting Fox News Held Christmas Party at Trump Hotel

“I was wrong … I stand corrected,” Stephanie Ruhle says

MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle apologized on Friday for saying that Fox News held its Christmas party at Donald Trump’s Washington D.C. hotel given that the party is not at a Trump property and hasn’t even happened yet.

“I apologize for the error. I am truly, truly sorry,” Ruhle said.

The actual Fox News party will be at the Liaison Hotel, which was confirmed by a network spokesperson. However, this morning when discussing potential conflicts of interest for President-elect Trump, Ruhle said, “Think about the hotel in Washington now. The RNC is having their Christmas party there. Fox News had their Christmas party there.”

A few hours later, Ruhle addressed the mistake live on MSNBC.

“I need to apologize to the audience. Earlier today in a segment I stated that the Fox network held their holiday party at Trump’s D.C. hotel. I was wrong. We’ve since learned that neither Fox network nor an affiliate held any party at Trump’s Washington hotel. I stand corrected,” she said. “I apologize for the error. I am truly, truly sorry. The mistake, entirely my fault. And of course, I wish all my friends over at Fox a very happy holiday no matter where you have your party.”
