screenshot showing time in UTC, but geolocated time zone is U.S. Pacific

Description of problem:
The geolocated time zone is U.S. Pacific, but the time displayed in the Date & Time spoke is UTC.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 19.30.13-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ qemu-img create f19-test-1.img 16G
2. $ qemu-kvm -m 4096 -hda f19-test-1.img -cdrom ~/xfr/fedora/F19/Fedora-19-x86_64-DVD.iso -vga std -boot menu=on
3. Click the Date & Time spoke.
4. In a host terminal run:
   $ date --utc

Actual results:
U.S. Pacific time zone is highlighted.
Displayed time is:
03:58 PM July 10, 2013

This appears to be UTC, except that PM should be AM:
$ date --utc
Wed Jul 10 03:58:44 UTC 2013

See attached screenshot.

Expected results:
Displayed time is U.S. Pacific:
8:58 PM July 9, 2013

If I click on the orange time zone pin, the time is immediately updated, and the expected local time in the U.S. Pacific time zone is displayed.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 13:49:04 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 11:02:23 EST
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
