TSN? Canadian Press? Do Your Editors Know ANYTHING??

From this morning's TSN page on curling
Canada's Kevin Koe lost to Norway in his final round-robin game at the Capital One World Men's Curling Championship. But the Edmonton skip will get another crack at Thomas Ulsrud on Friday when the two rinks play for a spot in the final.
Also from that page,
Canada's Kevin Koe faces Thomas Ulsrud of Norway in the 1-2 Page Playoff. Watch live streaming on Friday at 1pm et/10am pt.
It is as if nobody at TSN has any idea that the Norwegian team is being skipped by Torger Nergaard because Ulsrud is not with the team due to a family illness. Quite clearly, whoever wrote that lede looked at the score and looked at the team rosters, as shown on TSN, and started writing without reading anything else. Pretty friggn ignorant.

At least the full story has it right.
