Viewers of a Norwegian current affairs program were laughing out loud when an eye chart full of social media slang was displayed during a story about optical treatment for senior citizens.
The chart, prominently shown behind the NRK news readers, included popular online acronyms such as 'WTF', 'OMG' and 'STFU' amongst other randomly placed letters.
Newsroom editor Solveig Tvedt said neither she nor the “Dagsrevyen” (The Daily Review) team properly scrutinised the image before it went to air on the evening of December 28.
"We retrieved the picture from one of our image agencies and took it without taking a closer look," she told the Verdens Gang website.
"If we’d seen what it said we wouldn’t have used it."
Twitter and Facebook users suggested the show's producers were naive, with no one commenting that the convenient arrangement of the letters may have been deliberate.
However, NRK editor Tvedt welcomes the scrutiny.
"I think it's good that people are following Dagsrevyen closely," she said.
