Know your flags!
AOL Is Not Smarter Than A 5th Grader
By Kickntrue on 7/30/08
Mega-media giant AOL (America Online) needs to learn it's geography after a recent gaffe that could've made only Kim Jong Il happy. Leaderboards showed four LPGA players from South Korea with North Korean flags next to their names and scores. While this sounds like an honest mistake it's arguably equivalent to swapping a Nazi flag next to Israeli athletes.
The mistake was fixed and I personally think forgivable, though it seems they should have had a little better handle on things. While a few of the ladies are relativly unknown, one of the golfers they mixed up was Se Ri Pak, an LPGA Hall-of-Famer.
