MSNBC Uses Photo of Wrong Raj Shah


Amber Athey White House Correspondent

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’)
