As Twitchy reported, there was a closed captioning oops on the night that Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured and taken into custody. According to the closed captioning, the suspect was Zooey Deschanel. It was a much-needed moment of levity, for most.

Naturally, the Huffington Post felt the need to show its idiocy … by blaming Fox News. For an outside party’s closed captioning error. They did update the article, but only to clarify it was a “local affiliate.” Protip for HuffPo: Google is your friend.

“Red Eye” ombudsman Andy Levy took HuffPo to task.

@andylevy Ombuds the shit out of them, Levy!
