Fox mixes up Korean Ferry footage with random AsianFox News has confirmed it mixed up footage of South Koreans mourning the recent ferry disaster with video from the Mount Everest avalanche two days later, reports the Washington Post.

The cable network’s executive producer for weekend news and programming told the Post it has corrected the mistake on line and will address it on air.

“The wrong video was mistakenly pulled from the international feed. We regret this error and have corrected the footage online and will address it on air, as well,” says David Clark.

What’s unclear is why it took Fox News so long to acknowledge its mistake.

The Korean Cultural Center of Los Angeles says it wrote three letters to Fox News questioning the news segment.

A Fox News spokeswoman says the network was not aware of any complaints about its report.
