United Nations Space Command criticised for al-Assad soft touchhttp://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4343319/Beeb-blooper-as-UN-is-confused-with-computer-game.html
The BBC has apologised after criticising a fictional space empire from the 22nd century for not intervening against ongoing atrocities in Syria.
In a News at One telly segment reporting Amnesty International's disapproval of the United Nations Security Council's (UNSC) lack of action in the blood-soaked nation, the Beeb mistakenly broadcast a United Nations Space Command (UNSC) emblem from the smash-hit computer game series Halo. The real security council uses the UN's famous blue globe design.
The incorrect insignia could be seen behind anchorwoman Sophie Raworth as she introduced a piece about the Bashar al-Assad-led regime. A clip of the gaffe has appeared on YouTube.
Master Chief could not be reached for comment.
