NBC Gives the Golden Gate Bridge an Extra Tower
SF Weekly ^ | Tue., Sep. 17 2013 | Mollie McWilliams

Something doesn't look quite right

A Redditor with a good eye caught this still from NBC's Sunday night pregame show Football Night in America, where if you look closely, the Golden Gate Bridge has an extra tower. Also in this redesign of the bridge, the suspension cables just drift into space from the three towers (No need for those! They're just decoration!).

We're not sure who is photo shopping like mad over at NBC, but one would hope that the person in charge would know the Golden Gate only has two towers. And if they didn't know, maybe they could look it up? It's only the most photographed bridge in the world.

Thankfully, the Statue of Liberty in this picture appears to have only two arms.

KEYWORDS: bridge; california; extra; gate; gives; golden; goldengate; goldengatebridge; nbc; sanfrancisco; tower

NBC now says they have video of George Zimmerman hiding behind the third tower, admitting he is the real Navy Yard shooter.

Idiots! That’s what they get for hiring products of American public schools.

Kind of like not ever remembering when there was ever a case of “work place violence” at a military installation. And they’re the so called “elite”? Shake head and sigh.

Or why Mooch-Elle had two right hands getting off Air Force One.

Actually, no one did

Does NBC stand for Nothing But Clowns here...

Maybe the folks at NBC are as dumb as a post, or in this case dumb as a tower on a bridge...

Not only have they given it three towers, they also have it no where near where it really is.

During the Broncos - Giants game Sunday, CBS showed the picture of the skylines of the cities the Manning brothers play for behind their faces. The skyline behind Peyton’s face was L.A. not Denver. Guess the producer doesn’t get out much, or maybe the Broncos are moving?

I saw George Zimmerman driving over rachel Corrie in a GMC exploding pick-up once, I think, on NBC... or maybe it was all Photoshopped

The Broncos aren’t going anywhere, they’ve got great fan support. They’re never in the mix of those discussions of what teams are likely to move to L.A. It was just amusing to see the skyline of L.A. and the mountains behind Peyton’s face instead of Denver and the mountains.

That’s a fact. Pat Bowlen would be run out of town on a rail if he even mentioned thinking about moving the team. Not that he’d be that dumb. He knows what a great thing he has where they are.

Might get that view from a point closer to the bridge and water than where this photo was taken. There's a National Recreation Area there.

George Bush will be very jealous if he sees that. He saw Putin first, fell in love with him first.
