US news channel CNN has accidentally broadcast an announcement of the legalisation of same-sex marriage in Australia instead of Austria.
The screen news-ticker captured and post to social media reads:
“AUSTRALIA BECOMES 16th COUNTRY IN EUROPE TO GRANT MARRIAGE EQUALITY”
Sadly Australia isn’t there just yet, Austria is the lucky country ruling that same-sex couples can get married from the start of 2019.
This is not the first time the news organisation has accidentally mistaken the two countries, in March 2016 CCN broke the news that Australia was building a fence on the border of Slovenia.
