|Fox News apologized on Tuesday for showing photos of Philadelphia Eagles players kneeling in prayer – not in protest – during a story about President Trump canceling a White House ceremony honoring the team for its Super Bowl victory.
The 33-second report aired late Monday with four still pictures of the Eagles shown in the background of Shannon Bream’s narration. She said that the cancellation was due to ”the national anthem controversy 49ers Elite Jerseys ,” where some NFL players knelt during the ”The Star-Spangled Banner” last season to protest police brutality.
”To clarify, no members of the team knelt in protest during the national anthem throughout the regular or postseason last year,” said Christopher Wallace, executive producer of the 11 p.m. Eastern program where the report aired Monday. ”We apologize for the error.”
Fox tweeted a copy of Wallace’s apology on its news account Tuesday and said the error would be addressed on the television show.
President Donald Trump abruptly canceled the ceremony planned to celebrate the Eagles’ Super Bowl victory after it became clear that the majority of players would not attend, renewing controversy over players taking a knee.
Eagles player Zach Ertz, who was in two of the pictures used by Fox during the segment, tweeted ”this can’t be serious.”
”Praying before games with my teammates well before the anthem is being used for your propaganda?” Ertz tweeted. ”Just sad. I feel like you guys should have to be better than this.”
The two pictures with Ertz, one that also included teammate Corey Clement, were taken by The Associated Press. Both knelt at the goal line, heads down. The AP’s photo caption said nothing about prayer or protest. In one picture, there were players in the background scattered about, a clear indication that it was not taken as the national anthem played.
A third picture used in the segment, also taken by the AP Justin Bethel Color Rush Jersey , depicted Eagles players Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod and Chris Long standing during the anthem before an Oct. 8 game last year. Long held his right hand over his heart, while Jenkins and McLeod raised their right arms in a clenched-fist salute.
Long tweeted on Tuesday that ”Fox News used the faith of Christian men dishonestly to push an agenda. That wasn’t an `error,’ but intentional and strategic.”
”You’re complicit in PLAYING America,” Long wrote. ”This is just another day at the office for you, though.”
Long also wrote that most players who decided not to visit the White House on Tuesday had decided long before the NFL issued a new edict last month that players in the future would be fined if they knelt during the playing of the national anthem.
Fox News would not discuss how the error was made or whether anyone would face disciplinary action. Fox, which deleted online video copies of the error, made the correction swiftly. They’ve been criticized in the past for being reluctant to correct misstatements promptly.
Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari was taken off the field on a cart Saturday, dampening the spirits at Family Night at Lambeau Field.
Bakhtiari walked to the cart with his left shoe removed.
"I don't have enough information to answer that," coach Mike McCarthy said about the severity of the injury. "I know it's his ankle but that's all I know."
Bakhtiari was named a second-team All-Pro each of the last two seasons, the first Packers offensive tackle to earn back-to-back All-Pro accolades since Hall of Famer Forrest Gregg.
"I think he said he got his foot caught underneath him," left guard Lane Taylor said. "Not 100 percent sure, but I'm sure he'll be fine."
The Packers have been getting through training camp without one of their starting offensive tackles. Right tackle Bryan Bulaga practiced on Friday for the first time since suffering a torn right ACL against Detroit on Nov. 6 but did not practice on Saturday as the team brings him along slowly.
Without Bakhtiari and Bulaga http://www.texansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jordan-akins-jersey , Kyle Murphy played left tackle and Jason Spriggs played right tackle for the two-minute drill that ended the night.
"Just got to be ready to take reps whenever," Murphy said. "Yeah, Dave got nicked up a little bit but probably not too bad, tough guy. It's always next man up."
Depending on the severity of Bakhtiari's injury, it could further delay the creation of continuity up front. Last season, the Packers churned through 11 different starting offensive line combinations.
"The sooner we can get the five we think are going to be the first five kind of starting to get a chance to jell together, the better," quarterback Aaron Rodgers said on Friday.
With 64,702 in attendance, 10 players did not practice for the Packers, including receiver Randall Cobb (ankle) and defensive tackle Mike Daniels (quad).
