I will confess, as a 'member of the media', we make mistakes.  It just so happens that this particular KTLA  entertainment reporter made his mistake with the wrong dude.

 

The reporter's name is Sam Ruben, and it seems that he confused Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne....

 

 

 

The actor was relentless in exposing Sam Ruben's mistake, however, the anchor ended up coming out of this with a  very respected apology.
