No beating around the bush here...

What is a "completely unintentional mistake" anyway?

New Zealand's TV3 mistakenly labelled President Bush a "professional fascist" when a "mislabelled graphic" flashed up during its primetime news, airing to 360,000 viewers in about the 30 seconds that it remained on the air.

TV3 spokesman Roger Beaumont, on behalf of the network, said "It was an absolute case of human error. The fact that it made it to air was extremely unfortunate... What I can assure you is that it was a completely unintentional mistake."

Unfortunate? Not really. If it makes people think, nothing is unfortunate.

Remember the Early Signs of Fascism?
