APCs and the TV journalist! What a reporter!

When the army was going into the BDR headquarters this morning, 27 February 09, to run the search operation, the Bangladesh media started reporting that the army was advancing with tanks. By noon, the home affairs minister was found alerting the journalists at a briefing, saying that they weren’t tanks, but APCs [armoured personnel carrier]. Interestingly, an ATN Bangla’s correspondent was present at the briefing and used the minister’s clip in his video report later. Surprisingly and funnily, the reporter himself began his report, saying that “the army went into BDR headquarters with ‘tanks’. What a pity! He was committing the same mistake in his video report that the home minister corrected. He was present at the briefing and still he went on-air with that!
What an efficient journalist!
