NBC News Screws Up Photo: Sen. Ron Johnson Was Not Fired by JC Penney

TV writer Duane Dudek at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel caught a little photographic boo-boo by NBC News during Tuesday's Today. Anchor Natalie Morales reported JC Penney ousted their CEO Ron Johnson after just 17 months on the job.

But as you can see, NBC's graphic used a photo of Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, a Tea Party favorite who's had quite a different job in the last two years -- and a better business record:

Ha! Johnson's business success came from an Oshkosh, Wisconsin company named PACUR, "which specializes in the extrusion of light and heavy gauge polyester, copolyester and polypropylene resins for a variety of applications."
