BBC interviews wrong dude on TV



Here is the classic video of the BBC TV program in which they interviewed the wrong guy. Newswireless.net editor Guy Kewney was supposed to be interviewed during the show but Guy Goma, who was at the BBC office to apply for an IT position, was mistakenly brought on air. Check out his expression when he's being introduced. I wonder what he was thinking. Maybe along the lines of, "Shit man, I'm not Guy Kewney. Oh nevermind, let's play along." HA!!! Seriously, you have to hand it to the guy. He did a fantastic job. I do hope he gets the IT job though. Come on BBC. Give it to him.

How can such a thing happen for the BBC? Didn't they check their interviewees identities first?

I read about this in the papers. I wonder if it's a joke or what to give stupid BBC more publicity. How can anyone make such a dumb mistake as to interview the wrong person. Sheesh.

BBC has been deteriorating in quality over the years. Biased reports (pro-Palestinian, anti-Israeli, anti-American), mistakes, etc. This is just the latest example. Oh well, it is still the outlet I turn to for news.

Tragic.
