NEWSROOMS ARE BUSY places, so it’s understandable that a mistake is made from time to time.
Unfortunately, those mistakes are often made in front of thousands of people on live new broadcasts.
These news graphic fails demonstrate just how wrong things can go.
The time someone mixed up South Africa with South America
The time someone got a little bit too honest
The time a few letters being missing made a big statement
The time a state’s abbreviation took on a new meaning
The time someone’s brain had an actual meltdown
The time a viewer got one over on the network
The time a lesson in writing captions made it to air
The time a caption was just deeply ill-thought-out
The time someone writing about education forgot how to spell education
The time someone was just entirely wrong
