FTVLive was the FIRST to tell you about a horrific mistake made by WGN in Chicago.
The station was doing a story on Yom Kippur, the Jewish holiday and it included a graphic of the yellow badge that Jews were forced to wear in Nazi Germany as a badge of shame.
The station apologized on the air for the mistake and then WGN General Manager Greg Easterly and WGN News Director Jennifer Lyons issued another apology yesterday:
"Last night we ran a story to recognize Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement. Regrettably, we failed to recognize that the artwork we chose to accompany the story contained an offensive symbol. This was an unfortunate mistake. Ignorance is not an excuse. We are extremely embarrassed and we deeply apologize to our viewers and to the Jewish community for this mistake.
We are investigating how this situation occurred, reviewing our in-house policies and making changes in order to avoid such mistakes happening in the future. Thank you for your understanding. We promise to do better."
