Fail
I feel like watching my local news programs is like hanging out with my grandparents. You would think these people grew up in the 1940’s and never got with the times. The easily noticed errors and blunders just slip right by them. They seem so clueless at times. I wonder how they get by in...

Somehow yet another huge blunder has gotten by the producers of a local news program. The people over at Greenbay’s NBC 26 need to do a little better with their image gathering. My guess is that some intern went quickly to Google Images, nabbed the first photo that looked right for the piece (without giving...
With FOX News constantly getting lambasted for allegedly being biased and not necessarily telling the truth, they’ve started a new policy to be more honest.

One reporter thought she’d get the opinion of some...
With the speed of news now a days, it’s becoming increasing common to find typos from major news outlets. Sadly it’s more common than it should be. You would imagine that a site as high profile as NPR would not make these mistakes, but I guess with lack of funding this is the type of...
Well I had a meeting to attend in Newark but I think I’ll be skipping that. Looks like Accuweather isn’t so accurate after all.
reporter ruins world record, reporter messes up world record
At the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, California, a group of bubbly people gathered. About 150 folks wanted to set a Guinness World Record for the most people to step inside a bubble. Fan Yang is the “bubble scientist” behind the feat. He helped organized and direct the people into the massive bubble of...
