The mix-up occurred when NBC came across a bushfire chart used by emergency services that shows every small fire currently occurring in Australia, not just the massive one being reported on in the story. Since everything down there is terrifying anyway, they just decided that this fire situation should be no different and ran with it.
Right Wing U.K. Leader Gets Hitler Mustache on the BBC
Nigel Farage, a United Kingdom Independent Party leader, had a busy day fervently denying reports of a Hitler Youth past mere hours before he was scheduled to appear on the BBC. And then, just as the right-wing politician was calling for stricter immigration control, the stars aligned and a big-screen TV showing his face in Salford, Manchester, glitched in the most magnificent, Hitler-tastic way:
"Say, isn't that the funny YouTube bloke that's always upset?"
A BBC sportscaster was on hand to witness the miracle and tweeted the image of Farage rocking a temporary, perfectly placed Hitler 'stache (courtesy of a dead pixel on the screen). The mustache stayed there, accompanying him as he continued to deny any rumors of a racist past, and all the while Farage was completely oblivious to the fact that his own face was betraying him in the worst possible way.
