Accuracy in Media

Television and film start Jennifer Annistion appeared on a Good Morning America about the Marine Corps Cook-Off this morning and as she was meeting the Marines she remarked that she was going to join the Army. Oops!  She was quickly corrected by Charlie Gibson, but it only reinforces the image of dumb attractive Hollywood starlets.

Maybe the next year GMA can have the soldiers wear a sign that says “I am a Marine.” to help the celebrities remember which branch of the service they are talking to.
