News Fail: One Last Time, It Is MR Spock October 5, 2011by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Great Links,Nimoy , trackback
Leonard Nimoy’s final Star Trek convention didn’t just make news here at TrekMovie and other Trek sites, but was reported by the AP and the mainstream media. Unfortunately one outlet made a familiar mistake when reporting on the final con for Star Trek’s original Mr. Spock. Check it out below.
That’s Mr. Spock to you
Fox News fails.
And to clarify, Dr. Benjamin Spock is the famed human pediatrician who wrote the best-selling book "The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care" in 1946. And Mr. Spock is the fictional half-human/half-Vulcan science officer of the Starship Enterprise in the 23rd century, portrayed first by Leonard Nimoy.
