Yes, this is from the news feed, but I have to say, this was almost enough to make me buy a XBox 360. How awesome of a publicity can you get? And how the hell did the BBC screw that up? That seems too hard of a mistake to make.

As long as they model their news after this, I'm not surprised. Anyway - CNN has a track record of being creative with their research.

I thought it was pretty funny as well. Maybe someone intentionally slipped it in?

They probably just did a google image search for "UNSC logo". The first image is the one they ended up using :P

The guy would have to be a 18 year intern to not have an idea what the United Nations logo looks like. Plus I didn't even know the Security Council had their own logo?!

Maybe I should change the title to "The failed and sad state of the current news media"?


NOTE: The irony of that is not lost on me.

NOTE: For those who don't get the irony, please google what the Maquis are.
