Fox News last week accidentally labeled Elie Wiesel a "Holocaust winner" on its chyron, the words appearing at the bottom of the TV program, during a live interview with the Nobel Prize winner and Holocaust survivor.

The mishap occurred during an interview Wiesel gave on the Fox program, "Fox and Friends," and the chyron was immediately changed to "Nobel Prize Winner."

The mistake can be seen at the 35 second mark in clip.

Fox News has since removed the clip from their website, and there has been no response from Elie Wiesel.
