CNN has apologized over and over for the following graphic that ran over a story about the search for Osama Bin Laden. The words on screen made reference to the name of a Democrat Senator and possible presidential candidate, and not the world’s most wanted man:

A “bad typographical error,” CNN called it. That is a bad and coincidental error. The “B” and the “S” are separated by a few keys — at least on my keyboard, but hey, at least it’s time that somebody got even for the “X” over the video of Dick Cheney.

What’s the big deal? Ted Kennedy called the Illinois Senator “Osama Obama” months ago, and nobody made him apologize (YouTube video of the Admiral in the Olds Navy here).

On second thought, maybe this CNN “slip up” is in fact a subliminal ad for the “Obama for President” campaign. Somebody, specifically Hillary, should check the McCain/Feingold rules to see if we can charge CNN for the Obama promotion.
