In the middle of a news service you hear something and you just know that it is not right. What was meant and what was said were two different things. Here are some good examples.

"Britain is not an island...well, yes it is, but..."

- Unidentified MP, on BBC Radio 4

"The President continues to surprise people, so I am not surprised to be surprised."

- US Secy of Defense Dick Cheney

"President Bush is due to address the nation in approximately 20 minutes precisely."

Peter Jennings, ABC News

"Mobile launchers are more difficult to detect because they move around, unlike fixed launchers."

- Katie Coucik, NBC News

"Continuous coverage of the war in the Persian Gulf will resume in a moment."

- Tom Brokaw, NBC News
