MSNBC, sheesh

A chyron: “Mueller subpoena’s unknown corporation owned by unknown country.”

[Subpoena’s may be a genuine possessive and not an ill-formed verb (“The corporation named in Mueller’s subpoena is owned by,” &c.). That aside, the corporation and country are not unknown. They are as yet unidentified.]

LOL. I picture Mueller sending out subpoenas at random "to a company in a country".
Like a version of 6 degrees of separation, the cover letter could read, "If you know of a company that should be subpoenaed, in any country, please pass this along..."

Some company! Some country!

The skill-set for chyron writing seems pretty modest, esp. around “the holidays.”
