Good, Bad, and Ugly

Reader reaction to Reuters news

The wrong year…

June 14, 2010

 gbu olympicsI was just watching a news clip with a voice-over by a woman with an American accent.

It was about the 100-yr-old table tennis champion lady. During the story, it was mentioned that the lady was also in the Guinness Book of Records for being the oldest volunteer at the “2004″ Sydney Olympics.

I thought this was just a tad sloppy for Reuters, especially as the Athens Olympics were such a historic event.
