D’oh! ‘Today’ show confuses booted JC Penney CEO with US Senator

By

J.C. Penney got a bit of a shake-up yesterday when CEO Ron Johnson got the boot. It’s pretty significant news in the business world, so, naturally, the “Today” show did a segment this morning, accompanied by a photo of Ron Johnson. Too bad the guy in the photo was actually Senator Ron Johnson.
