Do newsreaders actually listen to what they are reading during any news bulletin? This example shows how a short news broadcast can be converted into relative gobbledygook by a simple typing error, in this case, every "e" in the newsreader's notes having being changed into an "o". Now liston carofully... ;)

Quite difficult to do on purpose although He was brilliant and another one Hilda Baker was hilarious with her words too. Very clever and talented.

maybe the E was the initial of the first name of the one who painted the word?

That's a possibility - an autographed work of art ;)

@pgntwo Or maybe he was like my brother who repeats jokes that he doesn't understand.

@xFiacre Ah but does he laugh at his own jokes too, your brother...?

@JohnRoberts The very pair, yes. The staple entertainment of many a post-Christmas meal evening, if not for Morecambe and Wise:

No autocorrect back then (my autocorrect normally screws things up, anyway).

Generally, these mistakes are common with Indian news readers. If the other countries are also having this type of situation then they must have got some training in India.

That's very good, I hadn't thought of that! ;) Have you seen Barker's spoof Indian cooking program sketch? I wrote about it a while back:
Ronnie Corbett, the shorter of the British comedy duo, The Two Ronnies, passed away recently. Ronnie Barker, on the right in the photo above, sadly passed away...

Reading the scroll at the bottom of the screen can be hilarious, misleading, infuriating and open to interpretation. But have you ever tried to type and listen at the same time? It's a mind-bender.

A bit like trying to pat your head with one hand whilst rubbing your belly in a circular motion with the other, yes - nigh on impossible!
