Taiwan TV shows queen in reports on Thatcher death
TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — A Taiwanese news station has apologized for airing footage of Queen Elizabeth II while reporting the death of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
CTi Cable flashed a headline of "Margaret Thatcher Dies of Stroke" and showed two clips of the queen shaking hands with the public. The station apologized Monday night after viewers criticized the station for failing to distinguish between the women.
News producers for Thailand's army-owned Channel 5 apologized for showing actress Meryl Streep's picture in a segment Tuesday morning. For nearly two minutes, it displayed Thatcher's biography alongside a picture of Streep in character for "The Iron Lady."
The production team wrote on Facebook later: "We will improve and develop our work more carefully and are deeply sorry."
Thatcher died Monday in London at age 87.
