Associated Press has a bad day in the office

One to file in the “Thank goodness I didn’t do that” category. Whilst AP meant to send out a news story about the arrest in Switzerland of Roman Polanski, instead they sent out notes of their journalists discussing the story:

Swiss arrest Polanski on US request in sex case
Associated Press, 09.27.09, 10:41 AM EDT

OK, can you do some more probing? New York will want to know

frank’s out today.

i checked already, and so did zurich. they say the question is irrelevant. he answered me with the quote i used, about we knew when he was coming this time. he’s been here many times in the past, we think.

thx brad. aptn is aware, but unfortunately won’t make it in time, but is hoping to catch tail end.

i’m pushing out another writethru with some more background details before press conference.

no surprise, new york is really hot on this.

And so on. Here’s a screenshot (click on it for larger version):
