Shortly after Roberts’ family announced her passing due to her long-battle with breast cancer, Sharpton took to Twitter to state that he is “saddened to hear of the passing of legendary journalist Cookie Roberts.” Aside from botching her name, the PoliticsNation host also misidentified Roberts by including photos of CNNi and PBS anchor Christiane Amanpour, who is still very much alive; he promptly deleted the remembrance post.
