Tina Fey’s impersonation of Sarah Palin seems to have been good enough to fool Fox News in the US.

The network has confused the 2008 vice-presidential candidate with the Saturday Night Live comedienne, using a photo of Fey during a story on Palin.

Fox News displayed a photo of Fey dressed as Palin standing at a lectern during one of her SNL sketches in 2008.

Fox released a statement admitting the error.

“This past Sunday during America’s News Headquarters, a graphics error was made during a segment on former Alaska governor Sarah Palin,” the statement said.

“The producer has since been disciplined and an explanation and apology will be made in the same hour next Sunday. Fox News regrets the error.”
