CNBC Thought 'Aquaman' Was Real

This is a fun MSM oops:

JUST like Ron Burgundy, the lead character in "Anchorman," it seems CNBC anchor Joe Kernan
will say anything that's on the teleprompter. Monday afternoon, while
doing a roundup of the weekend's box office, Kernan said: "Disney was
the big winner . . . 'Pirates' plunders the box office, making $132
million in its first three days at the box office. The previous
three-day record was 'Aquaman' at $120-plus, which beat out the 115
million which was set back by 'Spider-Man' back in May of '02.' "
Unfortunately, there has been no "Aquaman" movie - except in episodes
of HBO's "Entourage." A rep for CNBC didn't return calls.

H/t Pop Sugar. Yes, I read Pop Sugar. See how useful it is?
