Sky News: Harold Pinter Dead, um, No, He's the Nobel Winner

I was wondering who won the Nobel Prize in literature, and both CNN and BBC were discussing the horrible earthquake in Pakistan. So I reluctantly turned to Sky News. Good thing though. A very confused anchorwoman had this amusing monologue to say (more or less):

"British playwright Harold Pinter is joining us now. [pause]
[in a grim tone]: Harold Pinter has just died. [another pause]
Harold Pinter has won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Sorry about that. More about Pinter later."

Oh, the beauty of live, unedited television!

  1. I repeat my reply to your comment on my blog : I am concerned about exposing zionist crimes and about refuting zionist lies. Noam Chomsky has been covering them up because he is a zionist, and in doing so he has been misleading the Left and other people in the West. Should he not be exposed to criticism from the Left ?
