As Twitchy reported, there was a closed captioning oops on the night that Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured and taken into custody. According to the closed captioning, the suspect was Zooey Deschanel. It was a much-needed moment of levity, for most.
Naturally, the Huffington Post felt the need to show its idiocy … by blaming Fox News. For an outside party’s closed captioning error. They did update the article, but only to clarify it was a “local affiliate.” Protip for HuffPo: Google is your friend.
“Red Eye” ombudsman Andy Levy took HuffPo to task.
He did. And it was glorious.
Twitter users agree.
We do, too. Keep them coming, Mr. Levy!
