Unfortunate crawl below Channel 7's 'Detroit Homecoming' graphic

We got a bit of guff last year for making fun of the dog-and-pony show that is Detroit Homecoming. But at least we did it intentionally. The newshounds over at Channel 7 did so by accident.

In a bright and upbeat piece on the sales pitch to people who left Detroit behind, the channel's screengrab for its online summary captured the graphic at a moment when the news crawl beneath described a very different kind of homecoming.

The fragment of news seems to describe a bloody home invasion, reading: " ... he was shot this morning after two men broke into his house ..."

Is somebody having a bit of fun behind the scenes? Either way, this must be one of the most interesting pitches to come home to Detroit ever.
