Newsround's mistakes and editorial misjudgements just keep on coming. Take the news about Emma Watson. This was how Newsround reported the story yesterday:-
Harry Potter star Emma Watson has denied a report that she's being bullied. The 24-year-old star says she's never been bullied in her life, and reports that she's taking time off university because of being teased about her role as Hermione just aren't true.

Emma isn't 24 years old as Newsround said - she only turned 21 last month.

Honestly, CBBC ought to check its facts and accuracy before allowing programmes on air which mislead kids. Other examples - see blogs on 28 April 2011, 21 October 2010 and 11 December 2010
