Plenty of people on Twitter managed to confuse Papadopoulos with another George: The Stephanopoulos one.
Poor George Stephanopoulos getting hate mail for George Papadopoulos. THESE ARE TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE!!

Taking bets: over in Reich Wing World they’re confusing George Papadopoulos (R) with George Stephanopoulos (D).

Sorry, Karen. Looks like you lose, because you can’t blame “Reich Wing World” for this royal screw-up:
YIKES… CNN just saying George Stephanopoulos and then quickly correcting to PAPADOPOULOS! #ALotOfOpoulos

What can Wolf Blitzer say? It’s all Greek to him!
Wolf Blitzer just said “Let’s talk about the charges against George Stephanopoulos” before quickly correcting himself

Wolf Blitzer just said George Stephanopoulos instead of George Papadopoulos ?

Or as Wolf Blitzer just called him "George Stephanopoulos". Tee hee! Wonder how many talking heads will make the same mistake.

Wolf Blitzer just said "charges against George Stephanopoulos". Oops! Maybe try to talk a littler faster?

@GStephanopoulos Ha! Wolf Blitzer just accidentally named George Stephanopoulos in the FBI guilty plea. How do you answer the charges, sir?

Wolf called George Papadopoulos George Stephanopoulos this morning. This is gonna be a thing? Bill Paxton/Bill Pullman for a new generation?

If nothing else, this whole cluster at least has plenty of entertainment potential.
