Bolivian TV Broadcasts Photos from LOST and Calls Them Photos from Air France 447

In the most blatant display of broadcast news stupidity I have ever seen, a Bolivian news station has broadcast images from Lost as if they were images of the real life crash of Air France Flight 447. This comes to us from True/Slant, and it’s unfuckingbelievable. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. I mean, you’ve got to laugh, right? But the stupidity on display here is really, really, depressingly sad, isn’t it?

I mean, why did they not ask the questions that True/Slant does: “1) How did the camera survive? and 2) Why are the photos in wide-screen format?” And why did they not, as the YouTube uploader asks, “appreciate that while the flight 447 disaster occurred at night, the images represent the daytime fictional break-up of Oceanic Flight 815”?

The most tragic part of all this is that the person who pulled the prank attributed the photos in question to a man named Paulo. So, Nikki and Paulo strike again.

Damn.
