CBS News issued a sincere apology on Monday night for mixing up photos of the late Congressman Elijah Cummings and U.S. Rep. John Lewis, who announced he has stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

The mixup occurred on Monday's broadcast of CBS Evening News. A photograph of Cummings was mistakenly identified as Lewis. Cummings died of natural causes on Oct. 17, at age 68.

"Tonight on the 6:30 p.m. ET broadcast of the CBS Evening News, one photograph was misidentified as Congressman John Lewis. We have replaced the photo in all broadcasts and platforms. We deeply regret the error," CBS tweeted.

News of Lewis' cancer diagnosis prompted reactions from celebrities and lawmakers on social media.

Lewis, 79, said he will continue to serve in the House of Representatives while undergoing chemotherapy treatment for his cancer.

The civil rights leader once marched alongside Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to fight for the freedom of Black people to vote in U.S. elections.

But on Sunday, Lewis announced he is in the biggest fight of his life.

"I have been in some kind of fight - for freedom, equality, basic human rights - for nearly my entire life," he said.

"I have never faced a fight quite like the one I have now."

Lewis added: "I have a fighting chance."

Pancreatic cancer is one of the few cancers that can go undetected until it is too far advanced to treat.

“Let me tell you something,” Burdo said during a live discussion with an African-American hair expert, “I’m not a colored woman but I have kinky hair just like her and when you straighten it every day, it’s...” she paused, searching for the right word. "Healthier," she added.

CNN drops the ball

CNN drops the ball

From CNN Anchor John King reading the news off his cell phone, to bungling contributor Fran Townsend citing sources who probably don't exist, CNN dropped the ball again.

Yesterday, CNN reported that an arrest had been made in Monday's bombings that rocked the Boston Marathon. 30 minutes later, the once mighty news leader retracted its report, leaving millions of viewers wondering if CNN still employs editors who fact check the news before it goes out over the air.
