The live report said the iPhone 5 has a "laser keyboard" and "holographic images"
A news outlet in New York made a huge goof in its recent
iPhone 5 coverage
, saying that the new Apple device has new features like a laser keyboard.
Fox 5 New York (WNYW), a local television station in NYC, recently ran a live report ahead of
the iPhone 5 release
in front of a 5th Avenue Apple store. The broadcast aimed to interview hardcore Apple fans sleeping outside of the store until the iPhone 5's release this Friday.
However, the live broadcast went seriously wrong when the reporter described the iPhone 5's features. Instead of talking about the iPhone's new screen size or 4G LTE capabilities, the reporter described a "laser keyboard" and "holographic images." What?
Clearly, the iPhone 5 doesn't have these features. So why did Fox 5 New York report it? Apparently, whoever did the fact-checking for Fox 5 that day grabbed a concept video from Aatma Studio, which discussed what the iPhone could hypothetically do. To make matters worse, the concept video is a year old already.
Check out the live broadcast here:

Its hard to get a balanced viewpoint if you only rely on one news source.
For instance, the Guardian in the UK has a generally excellent standard of journalism, having reported several of the UK's biggest stories in relation to the Murdoch saga. The opinion pieces are generally pretty left.
But then you get something like the Economist, which also has an excellent standard of journalism, but with a more right slant. When both present their arguments as fact, then the truth is most likely to lie in the middle.
I try not to rely too much on TV news, as this is much more infotainment and opinion than many print or online media organisations.
