Oof. This probably isn’t what CNN had in mind for its Boston bombing memorial coverage:

Viewers assumed a CNN camera guy was the one who said it.

You can also view video here. Deadspin’s Timothy Burke has confirmed that that same feed was broadcast on several local Boston TV stations. Let’s just say this wasn’t CNN’s finest moment.

Burke sums it up pretty well here:

It’s only marginally CNN’s fault, of course; yes, they were slow on silencing whatever mic channel that was, but this is mostly the fault of the jackass blabbering during what was supposed to be a moment of quiet contemplation amidst bagpipes. But still, yikes.

Yikes, indeed.
