During its coverage of the protests and grand jury decision in Ferguson, Mo., ABC News used a fullscreen map to show other prominent locations where demonstrations were taking place around the U.S. Somehow, the border between Kansas and Nebraska was removed when the graphic was being prepared, resulting what we presume is now known was […]

Kansas City forecaster Gary Amble had some good news to report — the weather was going to be warmer — but the way it was phrased, as a result of the typo, ended up sounding like a teenager wrote the fullscreen graphic. Instead of reading as “Not As Cold” (notice the single “s” in “As”), the […]

CNN misidentifies houses of worship in L3

CNN made a major faux pas this morning during its coverage of a synagogue attack in Jerusalem. The network’s lower third continually identified the house of worship as a “mosque” despite, as Mediaite points out, that on-screen interviewees verbally referred to the building as a synagogue. Earlier this month, CNN mixed up President Barack Obama […]
