WSAV’s Obama Oops

On July 10, 2008, in journalism, by Barbara Nixon
My husband noticed this on the news at 6:31 this morning (July 8, 2008). I jumped out of bed, grabbed the camera and took a picture of the TV screen. WSAV had a video of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama, with the caption saying “Ardsley Park Shooting Suspect.” They ran this not once, but twice. I bet someone’s in trouble now. . .

It will be interesting to see if WSAV apologizes for this mistake.


UPDATE: During the 6:30 a.m. hour on July 9, I heard Kim Gusby apologize for the mis-captioned video clip.
