Holland wins the World Cup!

TNW and others report on an embarrassing episode for large USA based broadcaster, CBS News.

From the end of the World Cup final, until well into the following day, CBS News’ coverage of the event stated that The Netherlands beat Spain for the title, and even provided a detailed match report to substantiate the claim!

Before you start thinking that Americans understanding of football is even worse than assumed, we should point out that the report stated “The Netherlands defeated Spain by a score of SCORE to SCORE”, thus indicating that it was a holding article. But why it took almost a whole day to fix is another matter!
