Huh?

Check out this Snopes article on a humourous error in the closed-captioning of a live news story.
Aside from being a funny story in its own right, take a moment to ponder the opening sentence of their explanation:

"Most viewers who frequently watch television with closed captioning (CC) enabled have likely noticed that the captioning doesn't always match the audio."

Think about that for a second.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that most viewers who frequently watch TV with closed captioning actually have a very hard time noticing when the captions don't match the audio.
