Dominican newspaper mistakes Baldwin for Trump - publishes SNL photo :)

I'm wondering if this was done on purpose, or if the people involved in printing the paper were under a lot of deadline stress and simply didn't notice. I can easily imagine the latter having worked for so long in printing myself. I've seen some real shocker mistakes go through, printed and delivered to the client who's the first one to notice.

The paper has apologised. 😂

“El Nacional published on Friday as Donald Trump a picture of actor Alec Baldwin, who imitates on a television program the president of the United States,” the statement read. “The picture was sent that day by Associated Press (AP) with the name of the actor and reported on the program, but was placed as if it were Trump’s — a situation that went unnoticed for all who reviewed page 19.

“El Nacional apologises to the readers and to all those who felt affected by the publication. Actor Baldwin imitates President Trump on the Saturday Night Live weekly show on the National Broadcasting Company (NBC), one of the most important in the United States.” Junkee
