NBC Suggests Michael J. Fox Ran Across Canada

Oh NBC, the poor folks there just can’t get it right. Watch this clip as the Today Show crew tries to guess who will light the torch. Katie Couric (kidding) suggests that Betty Fox, mother of the late Terry Fox would be a good choice. Problem is Meredith calls Terry “Michael”. Whomever was in the control booth had a photo up of Terry until Meridith called Terry Michael and replaced the photo of Terry with Alex Keaton, AKA Michael J. Fox!

Now, if you made the mistake on the air, would you post it on your website?????

    Ah, man. I think the first woman meant Terry Fox, but accidentally said ‘Michael’ and then everyone else just went with it.

    Im Canadian and realize the screw up. But Katie Couric didnt mention Micheal Fox, it was meredith vieira. Katie Couric is a CBS report. All screw ups I guess cancel each other out.

    At least Rush Limbaugh didn’t accuse Terry Fox of exaggerating the effects of only having one leg.
