KGW, the NBC-affiliate in Portland, is under fire after accidentally airing a graphic listing numbers of “stinky people” and “angry people” at Occupy Portland.
The graphic (pictured) aired briefly, for less than a second, in the middle of the opening graphics sequence on the noon newscast Wednesday. “Somebody punched the wrong button, basically,” KGW news director Rick Jacobs told Willamette Week.
“It was just a lapse of judgment,” he said. “I’m going to take appropriate measures to make sure it never happens again.”
