LAT gets “Jackass” and Countdown with Keith Olbermann mixed up

I literally LOL’d when I read this:

Here is an actual correction from Page A4 of today’s print edition:


TV listings: The Prime-Time TV grid in Thursday’s Calendar section mistakenly listed MTV’s “Jackass” show on the MSNBC cable schedule at 7 and 10 p.m. where instead MSNBC’s “Countdown With Keith Olbermann” should have been listed.

It’s not the Worst Mistake in the World.

But without this kind of correction, online too, a few thousand people might have tuned into MSNBC, the Obama administration’s favorite cable channel, expecting to see a ‘Jackass’ show and instead they’d have found Keith Olbermann.

Worse, what if nobody noticed the difference?

Ya think? ;)
