Colorado News Station Apologizes for Naughty Picture Shown on Live TV
They say that all publicity is good publicity, but I am willing to bet that the folks at Fox 31 in Denver would disagree with that today. The Colorado news station is getting a ton of national attention after accidentally showing a not so TV friendly picture on live TV this morning (March 18th). The station has issued a formal apology for the incident.
The show Good Day Colorado was reporting on the horrible helicopter crash in Seattle the morning of March 18, and were showing some pictures of the news from Twitter. But the news pictures quickly became un-newsworthy. One of the pictures was of a certain part of the male anatomy that isn't allowed on live TV.
The internet has been a buzz over the incident all day, with multiple websites and news organizations reporting on the incident.
But Fox 31 Denver hasn't ignored the situation. They issued this statement via their website:
The photo was mistakenly broadcast by our control room. It did not come from the tablet many viewers saw being used by one of our anchors.
We apologize for the inadvertent broadcast of the image and we are taking immediate steps to prevent such an accident from happening again.
