CNN misidentifies a woman as first lady Nancy Reagan

When an elderly woman was spotted live on CNN in the debate hall, it was decided that she was former first lady Nancy Reagan. As a result, ‘NANCY REAGAN VISITING DEBATE HALL’ was plastered on the CNN chyron.

But, about 7 minutes later by Politico’s count, CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer was forced to apologize for the error, because the woman was not, in fact, Reagan.

“By the way, we want to apologize to our viewers. We thought we saw Nancy Reagan here in the hall. We are now told that was not Nancy Reagan.” He then added, “We’re going to find out what exactly happened, but that’s an apology from all of us here.”
