An NBC affiliate in Chicago was forced to delete a tweet promoting a NASCAR All-Star race after fans alerted them of a major photo gaffe.

NBC Chicago took to Twitter Wednesday to tout NASCAR’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway later that night, noting that the sport would be hosting the “largest sporting event crowd” since the coronavirus pandemic outbreak.

No accident here.  NBC has a history of agenda-pushing stories and photos
