Halo logo shown in place of UN’s during BBC report

A bit of a wince and a giggle out of the UK to kick the morning off; during a report on the ongoing struggles in Syria, BBC News accidentally flashed Halo’s UNSC logo in place of the United Nation’s. Naturally it was captured and YouTubed; check it out through the break.

The BBC corrected the error for later reports and issued a statement to Eurogamer.

“BBC News makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of all images broadcast, however very occasionally mistakes do happen. Unfortunately an incorrect logo was used during a segment on last week’s News at One bulletin and we apologise to viewers for the mistake. The image was not broadcast in our later bulletins.”

It could be worse, right? Remember when ITV broadcast Arma 2 footage as real combat?

    So what is it that makes British journalists completely unable to distinguish videogames from reality?
