The Hazards of Live TV: #25,223

It’s well documented that networks during breaking news events don’t always vet their sources properly…especially when “eyewitness” phone ins are concerned. Well, it happened to MSNBC today as The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple writes

Not so subliminal messaging

MSNBC tells us a bad template was hidden in the automated ticker. The graphics team has since corrected it.

Wellp, this is pretty bad. You show a picture of a doppleganger as the person who died? Ugh. I will say, having watched the segment, it seemed to appear like the MSNBC control room caught the error while Jansing was doing the V.O. and cut back to her. The obvious question is what idiot cued that B-Roll up in the first place? I bet they were under 40…

Type much?

Yeah…the first thought that lept into my head was this was some sort of play on Ed Schultz’s name…

Uh oh…looks like Caught on Camera is being sued for a case of mistaken identity. The Blaze’s Jason Howerton has more

A man is suing NBC Universal after he says MSNBC misidentified him as a criminal on one of its programs, allegedly causing him public humiliation, crying spells and loss of employment income.

During an episode of “Caught on Camera: Dash Cam Diaries on MSNBC, a man who had reportedly stolen a limousine was arrested by police officers after he was hit with a stun gun in the back of the stolen vehicle.

The man’s name is Todd Keith. He was later convicted of receiving stolen property, resisting arrest and destruction of property. However, MSNBC identified Keith Todd — a construction worker from Michigan — as the perpetrator instead. His name and picture were shown on the national reality TV show.

Ok…kind of a low blow to group Al Sharpton’s teleprompter gaffes into one video. On the other hand, I’m surprised no one has done this sooner…

The Hazards of Live Tweeting: #25,215

Just a little bit wrong…

okay, okay…a lot wrong

Just before Silver’s 2 PM conference, TMZ—which broke the initial news about the recording—tweeted that the league had suspended Sterling “indefinitely.”

Minutes later NBC News jumped on the bandwagon and tweeted same information, adding that Sterling would be fined $5 million.

On MSNBC, host Joy Reid said that the network had “confirmed” those details.

Surprise, surprise the reports were wrong.

Heather…Ronan….Ronan…Heather…

The real question for me is did he catch that himself or did the producer put it in his ear?

I hesitated at first to post this one because it’s an easy gaffe to make and it feeds into an allegedly pre-existing narrative for some but I’ve never discriminated on posting Hazards before and I’m not about to now. Besides, she corrected herself…

Gremlins in the tape room?
Interns at the controls?
Master Control upgraded to Windows 8?
News Corp. free booze night?
Is it live or is it…uh…nevermind…

What a horrendous screw up. It’s not as bad as this…but it’s still pretty damn embarrassing…

It’s one thing to make a mistake on live TV. It’s another thing to make a mistake in tape. And it’s an entirely higher level of screw up when both happen at the same time as is the case here when CNN put out this prized piece of self-infliction by airing live a taped recording that has a huge screw up in it.

How bad is this? Well, it survived the edit bay so the editors should all be fired. And it survived to airtime which means the producers should all be fired.

Basically everyone except Brooke Baldwin and Jake Tapper should all be fired. What a disgrace. It was so bad I had to watch it again just to confirm that my eyes did indeed witness the train wreck my brain thought they witnessed. Total amateur hour time.

Did Bloomberg’s Stephanie Ruhle drop an F-bomb going to break today?

We don’t need to guess since Ruhle confirmed it on Twitter

Haha! Got me! @marketmakers “@johnlowe: What’s f**king upsetting @SRuhle on Bloomberg?!

Uh…binder clips? I thought maybe they were holding some wiring in place except I didn’t see any wiring (though it’s hard to see anything in detail on this notepad). So, what’s their purpose? Too make the dress tighter?
