We all make mistakes, but when you’re the AP, the mistakes tend to stick out a bit more. Check out this screencap of a “story” on director Polanski getting arrested in Switzerland for rape today. Instead of posting the story, someone accidentally posted the chat log between the reporters discussing how to cover the case.
Screencap of part of the article plus link below.
See what happens when you take a day off Frank?
I look at a lot of things and think, “This could be better — ” but I’ve rarely ended that sentence with ” — if only someone added some blood splatter!”
