World Cup Photo Fail: Chicago TV Station Confuses South Africa with South America

It’s sad to say, but this is the type of media coverage that gives the U.S. a bad name . Not only did they confuse South Africa with South America, which makes Chicago station WGN look stupid, but it looks like they may have already begun with the soccer bashing by reporting on a controversy from the World Cup. What the controversy was, who knows. But it’d be nice for a news station to report on a feel good World Cup story for once.
