We all make mistakes, but it’s been more than a day and NBC’s “Today” website is still reporting that someone named “George Straight” appeared at the Country Music Association Awards. George Strait could not be reached for comment.

Get it Strait, guys.


Next NBC News will tell us all about the family of “Marvin Gay” suing EMI.

The Associated Press Twitter feed committed the same act of “blasphemy.”

The social media editor running the @APEntertainment account admitted the error, issued a corrected tweet and thanked followers for the crowd-editing help.

There’s a lot of love for George Straight on Twitter.

Whoever he is, he should consider recording an album.
