Broadcasters fail at math on live tv

By 97.1 FM Talk

(KFTK) – Live tv is dangerous, especially when reading tweets for the first time.

MSNBC's Brian Williams was interviewing Mara Gay from the New York Times Editorial Board, commenting on a tweet about the money spent by Michael Bloomberg in the presidential race.

Gay says Bloomberg's spending shows, "there's too much money in politics," but that math clearly doesn't add up.

Later in the evening, Williams joked about the mistake.
