CBS Totally Botches Name of Tonight’s Biggest Pro Athlete

Derek Jeter is on a long farewell of sorts (this is his final season playing for the Yankees), and so at tonight’s game he got a huge standing ovation. CBS News has a report on that moment, but their tweet for the report got one teeny tiny little detail wrong.

CBS, of course, posted a correction soon after.

But alas, it was too late. In came the tweet-mocking…

Oh, and this happened.
