Chicago news station 'mixes up' Pyeongchang and PF Chang's

[PyeongChang 2018] Chicago news station under fire on 'PF Chang' Olympics
The station quickly owned up to the mistake and apologized, saying the error was due to a mix-up with a graphic created for a separate, satirical piece. P.F. Chang's is the name of an "Asian restaurant concept" chain with over 200 locations in the US, including several in the Chicago area.
The satirical graphic was apparently made for sports anchor and part-time comedian Mark Giangreco as part of his "alternative Olympics" bits.
PyeongChang, situated in South Korea, is where the Winter Olympics are now being held, and like every other news channel, Chicago's ABC affiliate WLS-Ch.7's news team also made a point to include headlines from the event. 7 was, as most news stations are for the next two weeks, running down its usual Olympics coverage on a Saturday morning newscast.
PyeongChang and P.F. Chang's are not the same thing, and beyond the fact that they both begin with the letter P and end in "Chang", they have little in common.
According to the ChicagoTribune, WLS accidentally aired a report with a graphic that read, "P.F. Chang 2018".
"Please tell me this didn't really happen", one user tweeted, to which someone else replied: "@PFChangs if team U.S. gets over 35 medals, can you give away some free food?"
