Oops! Moment Fox channel’s closed captioning identified bombing suspect as ’19-year-old Zooey Deschanel’… and a local TV reporter who admitted on air ‘I don’t know sh*t’

The Boston bombings and the subsequent hunt for the suspects had put all mainstream media outlets to the test with rapid developments and unexpected twists – and many of them failed miserably.

New Girl wanted: Viewers who tuned in to Fox 4 and had their closed captioning option turned on were treated to the following script: ‘Marathon bombing, he is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel’

On Friday night, a tense police standoff with a bombing suspect unfolded in real time on live TV in Watertown, Mass., giving rise to much confusion that left some reporters feeling exasperated.

And one correspondent for the channel New England Cable News let his frustration show – and be heard – on air.

As veteran NBC presenter Brian Williams cut to the channel to get an update on the situation in Watertown, the unnamed reporter could be heard saying: ‘Oh, you’re not listening? Well, I don’t know sh*t,’ Gawker reported.
