Captioner sorry for calling Deschanel bomb suspect

NEW YORK (AP) — A TV captioning service has apologized for misidentifying "New Girl" star Zooey Deschanel as one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects on a Texas news broadcast.

Lawrence, Kan.-based Caption Solutions says it and its captioner "deeply regret" the mistake. Company president Kala J. Patterson says in a statement issued Tuesday they "sincerely apologize for this error."

The erroneous onscreen text appeared during coverage by the Fox network affiliate KDFW in Dallas-Fort Worth of Friday's manhunt for a bombing suspect. It declared: "Marathon Bomber. He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel."

The suspect was 19-year-old college student Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who later was arrested and hospitalized.

Deschanel learned of the TV captioning blunder over the weekend and tweeted: "Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!"
