TV3 awards the vice presidency to McCain

I’m watching the 5:30 news on TV3 right now, and they’ve just had a piece on the protests in Iran. The reporter commented that US Vice President Joe Biden stated he has doubts on the elections, which was followed by a soundbite from the Veep himself.

Only it wasn’t him. The on-screen caption clearly stated “US Vice President Joe Biden”, but it was John McCain telling us about his concerns over the disputed election results.

What are the chances of the same mistake being repeated on the 6:30 bulletin?
