Well That's An Unfortunate Typo

Wednesday, February 06, 2008

A good number of you emailed me last night to ask if I was watching PTI, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out why. Well now I know thanks to With Leather. There was a small and unfortunate typo from the graphics department near the end of the show (bottom right corner)...

I know the "N" key is next to the "B" key, but don't they have a graphics template that automatically fills that in for them everyday? I don't really know the AV side of things, but it seems like a pretty odd mistake to make if those words are there everyday.

For those wondering why they couldn't/didn't fix it once it popped up there, the general rule in production-land is that once it's up there, it's up there, and fixing it is going to draw more attention, so your best hope is to cross your fingers and hope people don't notice. That happens about 1% of the time.

Unfortunately for this guy, everyone's sensitivity to recent events and the racial makeup of this show's hosts probably turned this typo from this guy being picked on by co-workers for the rest of the day into him being reprimanded.

I knew I wasn't the only one who saw that.

PTI doesn't like black people.
