Where the penguins are

“Nightly News” used some file footage of penguins for a piece on the North Pole. Turns out there are no penguins in the Northern Hemisphere. From the “Daily Nightly”…

“A mea culpa and a thank you to the sharp-eyed Newsviners who wrote us (along with others) to tell us we had used file tape of penguins in a piece on the North Pole! There are no penguins on the North Pole. I must admit I was watching from home, and muted the sound to talk to a family member. Something registered, and I’d like to think I’m smart enough to have noticed. It was the visual equivalent of a kangaroo bouncing through Central Park.”
