Zooey ID'd as Marathon bomber

WTF OF THE DAY: A TV captioning service has apologized for misidentifying Zooey Deschanel as one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects on a Dallas news broadcast, the N.Y. Daily News reports. Lawrence, KA-based Caption Solutions says it and its captioner “deeply regret” the mistake and “sincerely apologize for this error.” The erroneous onscreen text—“Marathon Bomber. He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel”—appeared during coverage by the Fox affiliate KDFW of Friday’s manhunt for a bombing suspect. Deschanel learned of the TV captioning blunder over the weekend and tweeted, “Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!” Not the She & Him she had in mind, no doubt. (4/25a)
