Fox News says that a chyron describing President Joe Biden as a “wannabe dictator” under the banner of a “Fox News Alert” on Tuesday was taken down quickly and addressed with staff internally.

A spokesperson for the network provided news outlets with a response to questions about the stark imagery that blared across Fox viewers’ screens Tuesday evening as the network played a split-screen of Mr Biden at a White House Juneteenth event and the former president’s speech denouncing his criminal indictment.

“The chyron was taken down immediately and was addressed,” read the short statement in full.

It came more than twelve hours after the actual incident and nearly as long after disbelieving and disgusted reactions began pouring in.

“This country is completely unprepared for a full-time propaganda network,” wrote David Lazarus, a journalist for KTLA in Los Angeles.
