When the Washington Post reported the story of a conservative group espousing secession for upstate from downstate New York, WKTV decided instead to lead with their own story of succession.
I agree that the words may sound, even look, similar. But, even in the backwoods of Utica, NY, there remains a HUGE difference.
One might hope that our local television NBC affiliate would know the difference.

Ahhh as the saying goes... "When in Rome.... NY area."

You're lucky most of them can run the newfangled magic TVs to see it in the first place.

I see that someone at WKTV found their error in the over night submission on their web site and changed the spelling.
You're welcome.

This was a MAJOR contributor to our winning WWII.

Norden bombsight

Enola Gay bombardier Thomas Ferebee with the Norden Bombsight on Tinian after the dropping of Little Boy.
The Norden bombsight was a tachometric bombsight used by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) and the United States Navy during World War II, and the United States Air Force in the Korean and the Vietnam Wars to aid the crew of bomber aircraft in dropping bombs accurately. Key to the operation of the Norden were two features; an analog computer that constantly calculated the bomb's trajectory based on current flight conditions, and a linkage to the bomber's autopilot that let it react quickly and accurately to changes in the wind or other effects.

Together, these features allowed for unprecedented accuracy in day bombing from high altitudes; in testing the Norden demonstrated a circular error probable (CEP) of 23 metres (75 ft), an astonishing performance for the era. This accuracy allowed direct attacks on ships, factories, and other point targets. Both the Navy and the AAF saw this as a means to achieve war aims through high-altitude bombing, without resorting to area bombing, as proposed by European forces. To achieve these aims, the Norden was granted the utmost secrecy well into the war, and was part of a then-unprecedented production effort on the same scale as the Manhattan Project.
