Chicago TV Station Hilariously Blows Olympics Coverage
This is exactly why some people chose radio over television. In radio, you can have a flub and laugh about it (in most cases) and move on. Poor news anchors... if they can't laugh it off it makes us all uncomfortable, unless the error is not their fault, specifically. Take for instance this graphic that appeared while ABC 7 in Chicago was covering Winter Olympic news.
There's no way that happened, right? It did and it's a hilarious fail. It also makes me wonder if there were a food Olympics what games would there be? And, how great of a marketing campaign is this for P.F. Chang's? They should host some sort of Olympic games in their restaurants.
There is an explanation for this "oops", according to Chicago Tribune,
...the goof was the result of a mix-up. The graphic was created for a different “satirical piece” put together on Friday by sports anchor Mark Giangreco in which viewers were encouraged to invent their own Olympic sports...
Even though the graphic was planned for future. the error still makes many people giggle.
