PolitiFact Rates Fox News Claim That Ginsburg Died As 'Mostly False'

U.S.—After Fox News inadvertently aired a graphic claiming Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died, fact-checking website PolitiFact quickly corrected the cable news channel's error, rating the claim as "mostly false."
