As an old production manager for a local affiliate, if anything like this ever got close to air, graphic artist, chyron, AD, and director would get to answer a lot of extraordinarily uncomfortable questions before their three day unpaid vacation. Integrity of the product is paramount, no matter your affiliation.

Sounds to me rather like someone in Chicago was auditioning for a spot at fox news.

If they work their resume and work tape right, they could end up head of graphics by 2nd breakfast.

I'm no news guy but can remember making the same mistake.  On returning home from a lunch at PJ Lee's feeling a bit slightly very drunkish and not in the clearest of mind, the neighborhood welcoming committee stopped me to inquire as to where I'd been.  Now, as you may be surprised to read, I was not expecting the Spanish Inquisition and on short notice replied that I'd just had lunch at P.F. Chang's.

They took this as likely truth because there is one closer than PJ Lee's and I am known for doing things like going a week without food to save up for a really nice piece of cheese.....

Anyway, upon realization of what I'd said, I immediately apologized and corrected, but to this day I feel a bit guilty about making that claim.  I've never been to P.F. Chang's and probably never will.  Nothing against the house, mind you, just their reputation for being overpriced is a bit of a deterrent.

To be fair, Laquan McDonald was at a McDonald's before the fatal shooting and there were some associated shenanigans with the security tape footage from the restaurant.

As for this particular mix-up, I'm half surprised it wasn't a WGN Morning News screw-up. This kind of thing is more their forte.

As an oft disgruntled graphics gal myself... I'd say chances are very good this was no accident. Job be damned!

I would wager that was a story about Harry and whales, and someone made a clever joke, not an error.

Charles, Harry's father, is Prince of Wales.

You'd lose that wager. It was just a story about him IIRC.
