MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle issued an on-the-air apology this afternoon for claiming earlier in the day that Fox News held its Christmas party at a hotel owned by President-elect Donald Trump.
In a panel discussion this morning on MSNBC about potential conflicts of interest between Trump the businessman and Trump the politician in terms of alleged self-dealing, the host of MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle claimed that "Think about the hotel in Washington right now. The RNC is having their Christmas party there. Fox News had their Christmas party there. That doesn't feel a little hinky?"
The RNC is the Republican National Committee.
"Amidst the media's obsession with supposedly stopping fake news, MSNBC Live aired a fake news story of their own on Friday morning," NewsBusters noted about the fake news about Fox News partying at Donald Trump's new hotel in the nation's capitol.
