Why the Media Keep Having to Apologize to Andrew Yang

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang said media networks have had to apologize to him a dozen times since he launched his campaign. 

Appearing on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” the tech entrepreneur joked about the most recent apology he received from CNBC, which erroneously published a graphic with a picture of a different Yang.

Colbert held up the image about the state of 2020 campaign fundraising showing venture capitalist Geoff Yang.

“Did they apologize to you?” Colbert asked.

“They had a public apology some number of hours later after it was called to their attention,” Yang replied. “I think that’s about the 12th apology I’ve gotten from a media network.”

“And who is Geoff Yang?” Colbert inquired. 

“Geoff Yang is a venture capitalist in California who is a very handsome man,” Yang answered. 

The host then joked that they should team up for a Yang-Yang ticket. 

“One of the great things, if I didn’t want to attend an event and he went…” Yang began. “CNBC wouldn’t know the difference,” Colbert said finishing his thought. 


Yang has also been slighted in other ways, particularly by MSNBC, for being misidentified and excluded from reporting and graphics.

“They’ve omitted me from their graphics 12+ times, called me John Yang on air, and given me a fraction of the speaking time over 2 debates despite my polling higher than other candidates on stage. At some point you have to call it,” he tweeted in November.
