CNN Typo Kills Obama, Sends Social Media Into Fit Of Laughter
A video producer at CNN has made the gaffe of a lifetime – mixing up U.S. President Barack Obama’s name for that of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
CNN ran the heading: “SEAL WHO CLAIMS HE KILLED OBAMA UNDER ATTACK”, for nearly 45 seconds.
CNN then realized the mistake and swiftly corrected the headline to say “Bin Laden” instead of “Obama” but it was too late as viewers took pictures of the heading and made fun of the news organization’s mistake.
To see the on-air mishap for yourselves, watch the video below and tell us what you think in the comment section.
