One of my favorites from last year: The blame game

It's the President's fault . ..  it's Congress fault . . . it's the mayor's fault . . . it's the church's fault . . . it's the < insert third-party here >'s fault . . . blame, blame, blame, blame . . .

. . . just don't blame me.

Part of the video shows a Philippine-flagged ship that social media users have since identified as a Type 054A frigate, a type that China's People's Liberation Army Navy has been using since 2007. A photo of the Yueyang, a ship of that type, appears on the Wikipedia page for the frigate.

PTV has yet to respond to a request for comment but the video is no longer available on YouTube.

PTV apologizes for use of Chinese-ship photo in PHL Navy story | GMA news - August 8, 2018 1:06am
Quote
The government television network People's Television Network, Inc. (PTV/PTNI) on Tuesday apologized for its "inadvertent" use of a Chinese vessel photo in its August 5 "Ulat Bayan" story on the government's plan to send a Philippine Navy ship to Libya to help kidnapped Filipinos.

"Please be advised that the video editor responsible for downloading and using the said photos without proper verification has already been sanctioned," PTV News said in a statement. "Consequently, other PTV News producers and editors have likewise been warned against making similar mistakes in the future."

The PTV report had used a picture of a Chinese Type 054A frigate with a Philippine flag doctored on to the ship.
