BBC interviews wrong Guy on Apple court case
Television networks have been known to put just about anyone on the air as an "expert." But the BBC elevated the practice to pure farce last week when, instead of interviewing NewsWireless.net editor Guy Kewney, they accidentally interviewed a man there for a job interview instead. Kewney was supposed to go on air to discuss Apple Computer's victory in a trademark lawsuit filed by The Beatles' Apple Corp. over its use of the Apple logo in iTunes. But a producer grabbed the baffled Guy Goma instead, who was waiting in reception for a job interview. YouTube and other video-sharing websites featured the instant-classic clip, where Goma's look of horror was quickly replaced by a game face as he tried to answer BBC interviewer Karen Bowman's questions.
