CNN Typo Kills Obama (Video)


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.

The incident went viral on social media networks and the mockery took place on the channel’s Erin Burnett Out Front show.
The show dedicated the whole program to Robert O’Neill, the man who was recently identified as the Navy SEAL who shot dead Osama bin Laden in 2011.

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.
