Belfast Telegraph slips up?

image from Belfast Telegraph

Every now and again, websites slip up. Sometimes it's the BBC referring to NI's new MEP as Diane Doods. Other times, it's the Belfast Telegraph's ability to misspell Northern Ireland.

But at the bottom of a recent article (Friday) the boundary between the Belfast Telegraph and the BBC seemed curiously blurred. The article describes the YouTube videos that have popped up with coverage of the Ardoyne riots. After a long series of embedded videos, the article finishes with the line:

The BBC is not responsible for the content of external websites.

Bizarre.

But bizarre when it says "BBC" under a YouTube clip on the Belfast Telegraph newspaper website!

They were probably copying and pasting the links for the youtube embedded clips from another website.
