‘Begging’ instead of ‘Beijing’: Pak TV error on Imran Khan’s LIVE speech

Islamabad, Nov 5 (IECurrentAffairs) In a serious error by Pak TV, during the live telecast of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s address at the Central Party School yesterday, his location was misspelled from ‘Beijing’ to ‘Begging’.

The mistake gave fodder to social media platforms to attack Imran Khan who is looking to secure support from China to overcome massive economic hurdles in the country.

The typo reportedly remained onscreen for a good 20 seconds or so before it was rectified. However, in the world of screenshots, that’s 20 seconds too many.

The incident provoked all kinds of reactions from people on Twitter, from some calling the act “disgraceful” to others lauding PTV for becoming “drastically independent”:

The broadcaster has apologised via Twitter saying “Today, during a live address of the Prime Minister during his ongoing visit to China, a typographical error took place, which remained on screen for 20 seconds and later removed. This incident is regrettable. Strict action has been initiated under rules against concerned officials”.
