The BBC ran a report about Syria, Amnesty International and the United Nations Security Council. Next to the Syrian flag and the logo of Amnesty International was what was supposed to be the logo of the United Nations Security Council.
I had never seen this logo before, but I was quite sure that the logo of the United Nations Security Council is closer to the UN flag:
The BBC’s choice for the “UNSC” logo seemed a bit odd, too modern, extraterrestrial. And indeed, it turned out that it was the logo of the fictional “United Nations Space Command” from the computer game “Halo”.
Somebody at the BBC must have used Google image search and not noticed the mistake. This somebody was working at the “News” or “Current Affairs” department of the BBC of all places. He or she did not know anything about the Security Council of the United Nations, a body that has not only been in existence since 1946 but that has been covered in the news at least once a week since then. In addition to that, stumbling across a logo that looks like an alien with forks as extremities did not even raise an eyebrow with these people.
That level of incompetence makes me doubt the quality of the rest of the news on the BBC.
Dear BBC, I live in London and I still have some time on my hands. I am smart, educated and a meticulous and fast researcher. Why don’t you invite me for an interview?
