When there is a graphics error on TV news, it usually falls into one of two categories: politics or cartography. Some other recent examples:

Earlier this month Fox News made an unfortunate error in a story about the GOP candidates.

In August CNN had a graphic showing Tripoli, Lebanon instead of Tripoli, Libya.

In June Fox News used a picture of Tina Fey playing Sarah Palin in a story about Palin.
