TV chief fired for ter­ri­ble ‘typo’

Sunday Times - - Business Opinion & Bits -

Pak­istan has re­moved the act­ing chief of state-run tele­vi­sion af­ter a cap­tion read “Beg­ging” in­stead of “Bei­jing” dur­ing a broad­cast of Prime Min­is­ter Im­ran Khan’s visit to China, which has promised eco­nomic aid to the im­pov­er­ished South Asian coun­try.

Pak­istan Tele­vi­sion apol­o­gised af­ter “Beg­ging” ran on screens for 20-25 sec­onds on Mon­day while Khan was mak­ing a speech, kick­ing off a de­bate on so­cial me­dia as to whether the mis­spelling was de­lib­er­ate.

A screen grab of the gaffe.
