Exclamation TV screwup: "It's...CARNIVAL OASIS!!!"

I don't suppose anybody over there caught tonight's episode of that intermittently interesting tabloid tv show "Inside Edition", did you? They had a segment-- lasting roughly a minute-- on the debut of "Oasis of the Seas". Just one small problem-- literally HALF the shots in the piece were of Carnival Dream, including the unmistakable funnel design, even the bottle of bubbly breaking across the bow with the Dream's name in six-foot-high letters! Aah, truly, friends, this was American journalism at its finest! "Well, how are we supposed to tell them apart? I mean, they're both big ships, right?"

Maybe next week, for a follow-up, they could do a story about Barack Obama, using mostly footage of Bryant Gumbel.

Sounds like they slapped together the story really fast and broke out the first cruise ship file footage they could find. Typical media these days.

I don't think the media care alot about getting stories right.
