A picture circulating the Internet shows a screen shot of Chicago TV’s channel WGN-9 during a broadcast of the recent World Cup in South Africa, featuring a map of South America labeled “South Africa.”
I have not been able to find the actual broadcast, but a comments page on Chicago’s News at Nine still shows some viewer’s comments regarding the blunder.
Upon reading about this geographic mistake, I could not help but wonder: in its tireless search for Osama Bin Laden, are Americans looking in the right continent? [I mean, I’m just asking…]
