The BBC:

Paris protests mar Olympic relay

This, naturally, is entirely incorrect. The problem would have been if there hadn't been any protestors.

Still, the BBC, which is sending more than 400 staff to Beijing, is heavily invested in the Olympics and keeps insisting that London 2012 is something to be jolly proud of whereas much of the population wished the IOC had handed the games to Paris instead.
