Fox News host apologizes for ‘3 Mexican Countries’ chyron: ‘It never should have happened’

Fox News host apologizes for ‘3 Mexican Countries’ chyron: ‘It never should have happened’ The erroneous caption referred to the president’s plans to cut hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to three Central American countries. We apologize for the error.” But before the apology came the tweet, the disbelief, the jokes and the reflection. And before all that, there was the chyron. On Sunday, “Fox & Friends” quickly jumped to news of the president’s plans to cut hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to three Central American countries over the flow of migrants to the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump has already warned of closing the border.

Talk Show Host Dr. Phil McGraw visits SiriusXM Studios on April 24, 2019 in New York City. Dr. Phil McGraw is walking back his comments about Slippery Rock University.

The daytime talk show host, 68, offered his take on the ongoing college admissions scandal that actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are caught up in.

"I don’t think it has anything to do with the education. I think this is jewelry for a lot of these (parents)," McGraw told People. "The kids are leaving high school, they don’t want to say, 'My kid’s going to the junior college.' They want to say, ‘My kid’s going to Harvard, my kid’s going to USC or Yale.' I think it’s bragging rights for them."

He added that wealthy parents allegedly bribed college coaches and insiders at testing centers because, "they don't want to be the one parent that says, 'Well, yeah, my kid’s going to, you know, Slippery Rock.'"

However, unbeknownst to McGraw, Slippery Rock is a real university in Butler County, Pennsylvania, and the college's faculty, students and alumni didn't appreciate being referred to as the "antithesis of a trophy school."

"Dr. Phil, for less than the price tag of your lovely ’57 Chevy Bel Air Convertible, Slippery Rock University students can secure an education that will change the trajectory of their lives," SRU President Bill Behre wrote in a statement posted to their Facebook account Saturday.

McGraw issued a 'sincere apology' on Twitter a day later, taking 'one hundred percent' responsibility for his mistake.

"It was definitely not aimed at the real Slippery Rock University (SRU)," he responded Sunday in his own open letter. "It was from ignorance, no intention, that I made the comment, as I was unaware of your school and intended to use a fictitious example. One hundred percent my mistake. I have since educated myself about SRU and could not be more impressed with your fine institution."

His apology was received by SRU's president, who thanked McGraw for his "kind words" and invited the talk show host to "come and speak to our students in the fall."
