We may not talk much about trivial matters, so here's a good anecdote for you:
A guy who was in charge of making subtitles in English of Sarkozy's speech made a bad joke which was eventually broadcast by mistake: he wrote that Sarkozy invited the French "to rally [his] inflated ego" (when he actually said "to rally to me"). According to Le Figaro
, the "mistake" was not corrected before it was aired on many cable news networks in the US. (although I have not heard of it... have you?)
The "subtitler" (this, I found out, is the name of that profession) was eventually fired. Was he politically motivated? I doubt it - the guy was American. So was it some conspiracy by the CIA? I doubt it even more - Sarkozy is the U.S.'s favorite and the CIA is too busy discussing George Tenet's book
at this point.
