On Feb. 26, Denmark’s TV2 needed an over-the-shoulder shot for a report on the conflict in Syria, and some production assistant gave the control room a screengrab from the original Assassin’s Creed (which features the city prominently) Apparently it’s this one, from the game’s unofficial wiki site. That’s supposed to be the city’s skyline as it appeared about 720 years ago, by the way.

For a piece on Amnesty and the United Nations Security Council’s response to events in Syria last week, it seems the BBC’s production crew needed a graphic for the international body. So they went to Google. And got…well, what they thought was the logo for the UN’s Security Council (which doesn’t really have one), but which in fact is the logo of the United Nations Space Command, humanity’s protectors in the Halo universe.
