Fox News Anchor Calls UConn 'NAACP National Champs'

Tuesday April 8th, 2014


I can't help but cringe when I watch this clip of Fox News anchor Heather Childers declaring UConn "NAACP" national champs following the Huskies' win over the Kentucky Wildcats on Monday night.

Childers did offer an apology of sorts, though, taking to Twitter to say she simply "misspoke." Hopefully now we can return to our treating Fox News like the leader of sports news it is.
