CNN Needs Better B-Roll

CNN did a video story on the verdict in the horrendous Neil Entwhistle trial. Stock shots of the Massachusetts State House led the piece, along with footage from the verdict being read.


Then as the voiceover intoned what steps may happen next in the case a little b-roll courtoom footage floated in. But, uh, that's not the flag of Massachusetts in that courtroom - that's Tennessee. Oops.
See, Tennessee:
Massachusetts:

CNN, I'm not opposed to using interns, hell, someone has to get my lunch - but this is just plain stupid. Fix it.

At least they didn't run some Judge Judy footage.
