MSNBC contributor apologizes, deletes tweet about Fox

MSNBC contributor Joyce Vance apologized and deleted a tweet that falsely claimed Fox News Channel was not televising special prosecutor Robert Mueller's congressional testimony

NEW YORK -- An MSNBC contributor apologized and deleted a tweet that appeared to confuse readers about Fox News Channel's plans to cover special prosecutor Robert Mueller's testimony before Congress this week.

But Fox is airing the testimony Wednesday, along with ABC, CBS , NBC and the cable news networks.

Vance tweeted later Sunday that while she meant it ironically, "my apologies to anyone I confused."

MSNBC had no comment Monday. Fox noted it had been running promos of its Mueller coverage since Friday.

Vance's original message had been retweeted nearly 10,000 times.
