'Today' Show Airs Wrong Ron Johnson Image In Graphic (PHOTO)

Whoops!

During a story on the resignation of J.C. Penney CEO Ron Johnson, the "Today" show mistakenly aired a graphic featuring the wrong Ron Johnson. Journal Sentinel TV and film critic Duane Dudek noticed the gaffe Tuesday morning and pointed out that the show used an image of Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, instead of an image of the former J.C. Penney CEO.

The "Today" show is not alone in making such errors. During the 2012 Republican primary election, Fox News mistakenly used an image of President Obama above Mitt Romney's poll numbers.
