Looking like Hitler isn't always a bad thing.

A pixelation error on the BBC's big screen at Media City in Salford meant Nigel Farage appeared to have grown Hitler-style moustache when speaking to BBC Breakfast on Friday morning.

The BBC said in a statement "The big screen is owned by MediaCity UK, not the BBC. The fault has been reported to them and they are working to rectify it as soon as possible."


One screen.  One location.  A technical issue that the BBC had absolutely no part in.

From a more informative article:

The BBC said in a statement "The big screen is owned by MediaCity UK, not the BBC. The fault has been reported to them and they are working to rectify it as soon as possible."

This happened on a single big screen not owned by the BBC - not on every TV showing the interview.

A BBC sportscaster took a picture and put it on twitter, and later deleted it, with an apology.

Mr. Farage has lately been battling allegations that as a teen/young man he was fond of singing Hitler Youth songs, and had sympathies with Fascism/Naziism

This guy also wanted for questioning in connection with the incident.

Also, did anyone else notice that there's another black square in a different part of the display, above and to the right of Nigel Farage's head? Almost as if this is a digital video artefact from a poor-quality uplink?

And... that blog seems a bit... special: 'In politics there is no such thing as a coincidence.'

Yeah, maybe so, but in broadcasting there *is* such a thing as a screw-up.

This is a joke, right? It's not the feed that was the problem, it was the display.

At least they can admit the BBC is "a  very adept organization", not a liberal commie socialist muslim plot to take over America.

Still sucks though.

Well, Euroskepticism tends to attract, among others, fascists, just like American states' rights parties tend to attract, among others, racists.  It's not a huge stretch.

It is quite the coincidence though, I can see why people would get angry over this one. I agree that it looks like artifacting...

Sure, right up until they found out what actually happened. If, afterwards, they still felt it was a deliberate slander by the BBC, they should, as another poster put it, kill themselves immediately.

You know as someone who has dabbled around in digital video encoding, that really looks like an MPEG distortion error caused by dropped packets in a digital transmission.

I sincerely doubt the BBC had anything to do with this; most likely it was just a bit of interference that occurred for roughly a split second on one TV that experienced a minor signal distortion.


But keep farkin that chicken, ragers.

Considering it happened on a single display, yeah, it's a total non-issue.  That really IS a coincidence.

However, it's a REALLY farkING FUNNY coincidence.  Brilliant.

I have no idea what you're point is, so let's talk about me. Part of my job involves looking at editorial cartoons by kids from around the country. During the Monica Lewinsky scandal, I saw approximately a million cartoons showing Bill Clinton wearing boxer shorts with hearts on them. For some reason, that is the single iconic image that seeded itself in kids' brains. Sometimes the shorts had kissy lips on them, but mostly they were hearts.

Yeah, well, you should read the rest of the site... Second hand smoke is some kind of scam, they call it "passive smoking", they're sure that Putin saved the day completely on Syria and John Kerry made a "gaffe", and so on...

The bottom of that article is a slideshow of "Politician's Orgasm Faces."

It's half amusing, and half terrifying.

Wow. I must be watching too much TED. My head went in a completely different direction with cloud words, kickstarter and 3D printers using kids political cartoons to advance solutions for clean water in some malaria infested country.
Crap, now I have to donate another one hundred to someone. Farkin TED is costing me.
Have fun with the book (magazine, blog) though.

I like how they throw that other meaningless pixel blotch on the screen so they could say 'hey, there's another pixel blotch at the same time so that proves it wasn't intentional!'. They put all that kind of thought into every pixel that reaches the viewer's eye. I bet the journalism schools teach them these tricks today.
