3News in New Zealand has used what may be the worst (or is it the best?) news graphic ever. The story was about a dog who really loves chewing on tires, and in doing so punctured four separate tires. It began with one officer’s vehicle, with the dog giving him two flat tires. A second officer showed up to help but was given a flat of his own. Finally an animal control officer arrived on the scene and – you guessed it – got a flat of his own as well.

While the story is fun by itself, the graphics used make you wonder who was responsible for the story. Was it a group of summer interns? Was the graphic intended to be ridiculous and funny? Were they going for serious but completely missed the mark? The one thing we do know for sure is that 3News is now on the map.
