    Getting in to the spirit of an event and got suspended

    German reporter suspended after footage showed her smearing mud on herself while reporting on floods

    Have to say I think she has a future myself. Actions speak louder than words

    unique descriptions gangnam style

    Meat Pies, Kangaroos and .... I think some may be a bit sensitive- Convicts for us perhaps

    "S Korea TV sorry for using pizza to depict Italy" gangnam style also added
    1. "Haiti's athletes walked on to the stadium, for instance, an on-screen caption described the country as one "with an unstable political situation due to the assassination of the president"."
    2. Syrian team entered, a caption read: "A civil war that has been going on for 10 years."
    3. a piece of salmon for Norway
    4. Chad which was described as the "dark heart of Africa"
    5. ...


    MBC has since apologised for offending viewers, after complaints the visuals were "offensive" and "ridiculous".The channel said it wanted to make it easier for viewers to understand the entering countries quickly but said it was an "inexcusable mistake".In a statement posted to Twitter, MBC said the decision showed a lack of consideration for the countries concerned.It added it would start a probe into how the images and captions were decided.



    The head of the channel is also expected to make a public apology later on Monday.
