At the beginning of their coverage of the Democratic National Convention on Thursday Night, ABC News ran a graphic which spelled forward “foerwad.” 

The graphic was a picture of Joe and Jill Biden and depicted Jill saying “Joe’s purpose has always driven him forward.”

Below is a transcript of the ABC News opening of Thursday night’s coverage of the Democratic National Convention:


Voice-over: “This is an ABC News special.”

Voice of Michelle Obama “I know Joe. He is a profoundly decent man guided by faith.”

Voice of Sen. Bernie Sanders “Joe Biden will end the hate and division Trump has created.”

Voice of Jill Biden “Joe’s purpose has always driven him forward.”

Voice of Kamala Harris “Joe will bring us together.”

Voice of Barack Obama “Joe knows the world, and the world knows him.”

Voice-over: “And here we are, moments from now, Joe Biden puts it all on the line and tells America why he should win in November. Live from New York City and across the country, the Democratic National convention. Now reporting, chief anchor George Stephanopoulos.”
