Will the real Greenspan please stand up…

The CBC aired a report this evening on The National about the continuing fall of Conrad Black. Towards the end of the segment, reported by Havard Gould, a statement from Black’s lawyer “Eddie Greenspan” was read over an image of “Greenspan:”

I’m fairly certain that isn’t Conrad Black’s lawyer Eddie Greenspan, but rather Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve Alan Greenspan.

The Quicktime version of the story currently running on the CBC website has a different graphic:

The Real Edward Greenspan

I guess even the best news organizations in the world can make mistakes.
