Last week, we told you about the screengrab snafu from KABC misidentifying Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and in the process, introduced you to a Twitter account called “ABC7Error” which chronicles the mistakes made by the station.

Well, KABC was at it again on Saturday. During its 11 p.m. news, sports anchor Ashley Brewer was ready to narrate the postmortem highlights of Game 6 of the National League Championship Series between the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers. But unfortunately, other video was shown.

What other video you might ask? Well, it was video of a dance studio and then after a gobsmacked Brewer came back on camera, she tried to call for the NLCS highlights again only to be surprised by tape of a candlelight vigil. Considering how the Dodgers lost in Game 6, a candlelight vigil was very appropriate.

Check out what happened below:

You can tell that Brewer was flabbergasted by the on-air mistakes and her reaction after the candlelight vigil shows that once again that KABC is knee-deep in the errors. It goes to show that sometimes, once a station gets a reputation for making mistakes, it just keeps making them in droves.
