Me-oww!  That’s gotta sting, CNN.

Twitter reaction is comedy gold.

    We can add it to the list of CNN classics like the “Where’s Obama” error on Situation Room back in 2007. They even had a picture of bin Laden in the graphic but still put Obama instead of Osama.

    I enjoy the part in the screen grab also, where the idiot who put up the names, couldn’t spell the actual Egyptian President either. That is some klassy intelligence, right there.

      That’s rich. Someone is getting demoted!

        WHOA WHOA WHOA! Only if that certain someone was a white male. Otherwise
        everybody else gets a lecture on teamwork!

      Good notice! That’s hilarious :)

    Leon Panther, the next Apple OS.

      Makes me think the editors of CNN are using their iPhones to work while sitting at Starbucks. Got to remember to turn off that autocorrect!

      Later realizing that it isn’t polite to talk with your mouth full.

    That’s what too much weed smoking will do for you – now we know CNN!

  • Andy Jacobson

    Wouldn’t he actually be the WAR secretary?

    Ironically, it turns out that Leon The Panther is a chameleon

    with is buddies, Joe Jaguar and Leo Lion.

    If only Leon’s real first name was Pete…or maybe…Pink…

  • RightThinking1

    Now, if they had referred to Eric Panther, it would all make sense…

    You’d think the person that runs DOD would have as much venom criticism and outrage hurled at him as Pres Obama on the terrorist attack in Libya. BUT ITS NON EXISTENT. You’d think the person that runs the DOD would have more venom criticism and outrage hurled at him than UN ambassador Rice on the terrorist attack in Libya. BUT ITS NON EXISTENT. Did Sen McCain say Panetta was incompetent?

    They’re lucky they can spell CNN.

    What about when Fox News changes people’s political parties? I loved how they changed “Toe Tappin'” Larry Craig’s party to democrat after he got in trouble. How come Malkin doesn’t mention that in her twitter spell check?

    Did they play the Pink Panther theme song in the background? That would be perfect :)
