A missing letter results in embarrassing mistake for Memphis station

A missing letter in a Memphis station’s lower third drastically altered its meaning.

WMC-TV’s banner should have read “Peeping Tom” but a single letter was dropped, making it read “Peeing Tom.”

That missing letter? “P.”

Oh, the irony.
