Zooey Deschanel mistaken as Boston suspect

MANILA, Philippines – A Fox station in Texas mistakenly identified US actress Zooey Deschanel as one of the suspects in the Boston marathon bombings, reported the Huffington Post. 

Fox 4 Dallas-Fort Worth displayed a photo of the suspect along with the caption, "Marathon bombing. He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel."

Radio show producer Peter Ogburn first tweeted about the error. He shared a picture of his screen, saying, "Oh come on, Fox."
