CNBC uses wrong photos for Andrew Yang, Tulsi Gabbard

CNBC displayed the wrong photos Monday of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates Andrew YangAndrew YangGroups seek to get Black vote out for Democrats in Georgia runoffs Media and Hollywood should stop their marching-to-Georgia talk Andrew Yang: Democrats need to adopt message that government is 'working for them' MORE and Rep.

The error came as the show was discussing fourth quarter fundraising numbers.

Redpoint Ventures founding partner Geoff Yang was shown in place of Andrew Yang, while Gabbard's photo was that of former 2020 presidential candidate Sen.

Ben Mitchell of CBS News also pointed out the mistake in a tweet "liked" by Gabbard.


Yang has repeatedly criticized the media for its coverage of his campaign. In November, he boycotted MSNBC because of what he argued was a blackout against his campaign. The 44-year-old tech entrepreneur lifted the boycott in December and appeared on the network last month.


Gabbard has also been critical of media coverage of her campaign.

At the Oct. 15 Democratic debate, she lashed out at The New York Times and CNN.

"Just two days ago, The New York Times put out an article saying that I'm a Russian asset and an Assad apologist and all these different smears. This morning, a CNN commentator said on national television that I'm an asset of Russia. Completely despicable," Gabbard said on Oct. 15.

Gabbard visited Syria and met with President Bashar Assad in 2017, a meeting that caught other Democrats by surprise and has attracted criticism given Assad's chemical attacks on civilians during the Syrian war.
