An Obama rape graphic (shown above) is probably one of those facepalm moments that the producers behind Fox 5 News wish they had back.
The President of the United States was implicated in a San Diego sexual assault case when his picture was mistakenly shown during a live broadcast.
Unfortunately for the network, it went viral and ended up on the front page of reddit before it could be scrubbed from the Internet.
Anchorwoman Kathleen Bade gave the details on this story, not aware that she was about to become a central player in a viral mishap.
"The only suspect in a sex assault at SDSU will not be charged," she stated as the "NO CHARGES" caption ran along with a picture of the President.
Mike Wille, an assignment editor, said that everyone in the newsroom noticed the foul-up immediately, but the broadcast continued for 56 minutes longer with no acknowledgment of what had occurred.
"Yeah, there was an accident when they had an over-the-shoulder" display, Wille told Times of San Diego. "It wasn't on purpose."
Wille also explained why there was no apology or acknowledgement.
"They really don't do that when it's a small thing like that."
Here's the video from the broadcast.
