Oops, Mr President! CNN typo 'Navy SEAL killed Obama' has Twitter in stitches (VIDEO)
CNN has accidently “killed” President barack Obama instead of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in one of its shows. For nearly a minute, CNN displayed a headline with a typo that viewers just could not miss.
The channel’s Erin Burnett OutFront show was dedicated to Robert O'Neill, a Navy SEAL, who is claiming to be the one to have shot and killed Osama bin Laden in the 2011 raid on a Pakistani compound.
CNN eventually replaced "Obama" with "Bin Laden" in the headline, but it was little too late – its viewers had enough time to take pictures of their TV screens and record video to share them online.

Hey @CNN, that's one name you can't misspell. Osama Bin Laden and President Obama aren't interchangeable. pic.twitter.com/2yGb86MfJ3
