CBS News apologized on Twitter for confusing deceased Congressman Cummings for Congressman Lewis while reporting that he is suffering from stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

During their evening news show, the network showed a photo of late Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, who died in October at 68, when referring to Georgia Democrat John Lewis.

They got hammered on Twitter:

Eric McDaniel suggested CBS must think all African Americans look alike:

Is guess all African Americans still look alike… while reporting on Rep. John Lewis, CBS Evening news displayed a picture of the late Rep. Elijah Cummings while showing a statement from John Lewis.

Stephon Ferguson wrote: “Can’t believe CBS News is showing a picture of the late U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings w/ Congressman John Lewis’ name as they talk about Rep. Lewis’ recent announcement. Get it right!”

Do you think George Soros is behind the protests?

The quote, “While I am clear-eyed about the prognosis… I have a fighting chance,” from Rep. John Lewis appeared next to the deceased lawmaker, Elijah Cummings’ photo.

It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving network.
