CBS ‘expands’ leader’s life by 90 years

During a brief report on the death of Iraqi politician Ahmed Chalabi, “CBS Evening News” aired an OTS graphic featuring Chalabi’s photo and date of birth and death.

However, the network’s graphics department inverted two numbers in “2015,” causing it to read as “2105.”

In case you’re wondering, had that date been accurate, that would have made Chalabi 161 years young.
