Springfield Anchor Kent Brokman once made an on-air correction in which he reported that “Mr. Burns was then transferred to a better hospital where his condition was updated to… alive.”
According to the NY Post, WABC-NY’s Bill Ritter was highlighting a local story about Jack Allard, 26, who was placed in a medically induced coma after becoming ill with the virus.
“After spending time on a ventilator and five full weeks in the hospital, the governor announced that Jack has died,” Ritter said on WABC-TV’s nightly broadcast.
The only problem, Jack is very much alive.
As soon as Murphy’s audio ended, Ritter realized Allard was very much alive and backtracked his comments.
“I feel horrible. Jack is very much alive. Jack, we love you,” the anchor remarked.
This all, in no way, shape or form, reminds of this scene from ‘Top Secret’
