Ernst & Young’s US firm has had to issue a grovelling apology after a
computer glitch mistakenly nominated ITN for an Emmy award.
ITN believed it was shortlisted in the news category but it turned out the
numbers had been miscounted,
In a statement E&Y said: ‘Ernst & Young, after providing the names of
nominees for the 2007 International Emmy news and current affairs categories,
through its office in New York, discovered that due to a computational error the
firm’s initial list of nominees was incorrect.’
‘Ernst & Young deeply regrets the error in its ballot-counting process
and has expressed its apologies to the International Academy and the nominees.’
To add insult to injury, ITN was replaced as a nominee by the BBC.
