Danish TV Channel Apologises for Using Assassin's Creed Image as Syria Backdrop
Whoops! A Danish TV station has apologised for accidentally using a screenshot from Assassin's Creed to illustrate a news report about Syria.

Head of TV2 Jacob Nybroe said that the image, used as a backdrop behind news anchor Cecile Beck on February 26, was thought by an employee to be a photo of Damascus' skyline. Nybroe added that he learned of the mistake following speculation on social media websites.

The exec said that it was a terrible mistake and a ?reminder to us all of the importance of verifying the sources of pictures.? Guess we can't complain too much about the graphical fidelity of computer games anymore!
