According to multiple conservative websites, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away quietly last week.
For the first time in her 25-year career on the Supreme Court, Ginsburg was not on the bench at the start of the new year.
The tumors were discovered by her doctors soon after Ginsburg fell at home and fractured three ribs. Ginsburg had previous bouts with colon and pancreatic cancer in 1999 and 2009 - suggesting the cancer metastasized (spread from one part of her body to another).
Since the start of the new year, there have been scant reports in the news about Ginsburg. No pictures of her working from home; no video conferencing images to confirm she is still alive.
Then, on Monday, Jan. 21, Fox News' daytime talk show Fox & Friends briefly mentioned Ginsburg's passing by airing the above graphic bearing the dates of the justice's birth and death. About 20 minutes later Fox & Friends co-hosts Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt apologized for accidentally airing the graphic.
"We need to apologize," Doocy told viewers. "A technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of Ruth Bader Ginsburg with a date on it. We don't want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. That was an accident."
Earhardt added it was a "big mistake."
But conservative bloggers aren't buying their explanation. The bloggers say Fox News and other media outlets conspired to conceal Ginsburg's death from the public in order to prevent President Donald Trump from appointing another conservative judge to the Supreme Court.
If true, this is the biggest media cover-up in US history.
