Oops: CNN Chyron Updates on ‘SEAL Who Claims He Killed Obama’

A CNN chyron covering the turmoils of the Navy SEAL who claims to have shot Osama bin Laden accidentally made the typo we all thought was no more after the terrorist leader died:


In fairness, they did take the chyron down and it popped back up about a minute later reading “Bin Laden” instead of “Obama.”

UPDATE — Nov. 8, 2014, 12:25 p.m. ET: Burnett apologized for this mishap at the end of the hour:

One note before we go: A banner that appeared at the bottom of your screen during the report about the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden was incorrect. We apologize for the error.
