Chicago TV Station Confuses Pyeongchang with PF Chang's

Chicago TV station uses graphics that confuse Pyeongchang with P.F. Chang's Pyeongchang is a mountainous county 110 miles southeast of Seoul in South Korea, and the host of the 2018 Winter Olympics.

 

A TV station in Chicago accidentally confused Pyeongchang (the host of the 2018 Winter Olympics) and P.F. Chang’s (the Asian-themed chain restaurant) in a news graphic over the weekend. A spokesperson for WLS-TV has since apologized and told the Chicago Tribune that the graphic was intended to be used in a satirical sports broadcast that aired Friday. Twitter users were quick to mock the station for its gaffe. "Hey, this mistake could happen to... PRACTICALLY NO ONE," one tweeted. Another joked, "If the Olympics were held at P.F. Chang’s, I’d be a gold medalist." P.F. Chang's also got in on the fun by tweeting, "Contrary to this broadcast, we’re not hosting the games."  Source
