MSNBC ran the wrong photo of White House aide Raj Shah during anchor Chris Hayes’ show, and then corrected the mistake during the show’s re-run at 3 AM.


While a panel was discussing old text messages Shah sent about the president while he worked for the Republican National Committee, the MSNBC producers flashed a series of images of Shah.

Unfortunately, at one point, they zoomed in on a photo of a different Raj Shah — the one who served under President Barack Obama. (RELATED: CNN Torched By Sarah Sanders For Mistaking Trump WH Staffer For Obama Official) 

They later corrected the mistake during a re-run of the show.


MSNBC joins CNN, who has also mistakingly put up a photo of the wrong Shah and even butchered the White House aide’s name. (RELATED: Chris Cuomo Calls Indian-American Trump Aide ‘Raj Whatever-His-Name-Is’)
