E Online - Boston Manhunt Boo-Boo
Zooey Deschanel had nothing to do with the Boston Marathon bombings.
Not exactly breaking news, right?
Tell that to Peter Ogburn's television set, which, while the radio show producer and writer was watching the manhunt for a second suspect unfold on his local Fox station, misidentified the 19-year-old man police were looking for as...
"Marathon bombing, he is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel," read the errant caption, which flubbed the name of Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, who was ultimately arrested Friday night after he was found hiding in a boat behind a home in Watertown, Mass.
Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL! “@joelmchale: Oh my RT @peterogburn: twitter.com/peterogburn/st…”

I knew she was trouble when I saw that Elf movie.

Can we blame this on an auto-correct fail? I mean everything else is!

This comes from a news channel that thinks Mitt Romney is the president.

Wow I won the office pool. It was Zooey in the pantry with an ice pick.

CNN = Bad
Fox = Mega Bad

Fox news reports that Zooey Deschanel and the the janitor of the school that White Hat attended both happened to be seen driving past the same Popeyes Chicken store within the past 10 years. Fox is about to interview the brother of a one time customer of that store for his take on how this is related to Benghazi.

Maybe Fox just got tired of blaming everything on Obama… Naaaa just joking! They will never get tired of that.

Well Zooey is a bombshell - so I can see how Fox got confused

I feel so much safer now that Zooey Deschanel is in custody.

Fox News stands by their reporting. Sean Hannity demands "to know why Zooey Deschanel is still at large!"

A DFW TV station mistakenly named Zooey Deschanel a bomb suspect?Zooey doesn't make bombs. Katherine Heigl does.

Oh, I see—it's *spelled* "Dzhokar Tsarnaev" but *pronounced* "Zooey Deschanel." Chechen names are apparently tricky that way.
