HUNGER Games? The level of OOPS in this local news graphic about the Olympics’ host city MIGHT whet your appetite

The main city in South Korea hosting the Winter Olympics is Pyeongchang, but for one media outlet that hails from Chicago, there was a little mix-up recently. What’s wrong with this picture?

WLS-Ch.7 blames a graphics “mix-up” for confusion between P.F. Chang’s and Pyeongchang. It says logo was created for a “satirical piece.” https://t.co/mBhvXZfq98 pic.twitter.com/0i59xFzWBL

There are mistakes, and then there’s this from WLS in Chicago. pic.twitter.com/uP1tSJwNpQ

Missed it by THAT much.

From the Chicago Tribune:

PyeongChang and P.F. Chang’s are not the same thing, and beyond the fact that they both begin with the letter P and end in “Chang,” they have little in common.

This distinction, however, appears to have eluded WLS-Ch.7’s news team, which on Saturday morning accidentally broadcast a report about the political backdrop to the Winter Olympics, illustrated with the graphic, “P.F. Chang 2018.”

Whoops!

One thing’s for sure, the WLS goof has increased appetites:
