A titanic blunder

A clear winner has emerged in yesterday’s European Parliament election: 324.cat.

In its coverage of the UK electoral results, Catalonia’s finest news source has somehow reimagined David Cameron’s first name as J-A-M-E-S.

James Cameron

[stunned silence, followed by the sound of jaws dropping]

According to 324.cat, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is… very famous filmmaker (and Canadian citizen) James Cameron.

Who needs fact-checking when you can scrape by on vaguely remembered factoid fragments?
