But Young is still alive, although his office told TPM in an email that his "condition turned for the worse over night and he is gravely ill." Carlson corrected the error later in the broadcast.

"Alright, I'm really sorry to report that earlier we did report that Congressman Bill Young had passed away," Carlson said. "We are now told that is not the case and we of course sincerely apologize for that error.  Hopefully that won't happen again."
