The BBC has issued an apology for mistakenly broadcasting an emblem from the Halo series and representing it as the logo of the United Nations.
In its News at One show last week the company used the fictional logo of the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) during a report on the conflict in Syria. The broadcaster has since issued a statement apologizing for the mistake.
“BBC News makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of all images broadcast, however very occasionally mistakes do happen,” it told Eurogamer. “Unfortunately an incorrect logo was used during a segment on last week’s News at One bulletin and we apologise to viewers for the mistake. The image was not broadcast in our later bulletins.”
It appears that the curse of Google image search has struck again, how stupid must the guy who allowed that to happen feel. The majority of people watching that bulletin probably didn’t even realize anything was wrong, but any gamers watching were not going to let it just slide by.
