Go for a Job Interview and Maybe You'll be a Star

Did you hear about the guy at a job interview accidentally being interviewed on BBC TV? According to TimesOnline.co.uk:

A COMPUTER programmer whose BBC job application led to him mistakenly broadcasting live to a worldwide audience was last night still waiting to hear whether he’d got the job. Guy Goma, who was ushered before live cameras and interviewed as an internet expert, said that he was “traumatised” by the experience. Mr Goma was grilled on camera after an embarrassing error by BBC News 24. He had been looking for work in the business information department.

What happened was:

Producers at BBC News 24, the rolling news channel, thought Mr Goma was Guy Kewney, an internet expert, who was sitting patiently in the lobby of Television Centre in West London. Mr Kewney watched television screens in disbelief as the interview progressed, under his name, but with the wrong man.

Mr Goma, an economics and business studies graduate, was interrogated by Karen Bowerman, the business news presenter, about a victory in the High Court by Apple the computer company over Apple Corps, which manages the intellectual property of the Beatles.

The funny thing is this story has been all over the media poking at BBC as complete morons for their mistake. The problem is all of the media reported this guy as being a cabbie. So I guess the BBC wasn't the only media outlet that was wrong. Who woulda' thunk it?
