Looks to me the CNN music-dubbing boys have a sense of humor!

Never underestimate the power of one pissed-off, unpaid intern would be my guess.

....the CNN music-dubbing boys....
Asked immediately after it aired; "How long have you worked at CNN, and don't count today as a full day?"

In fairness, it's hard to read the play list through the holes in those hooded white capes...

The real one actually does contain the 'N' word... it's just not what was played in that particular satire video.

CNN Celebrates Old Black Lady With Delightful Musical Slurs

Some of the comments below the video in the above link are worth a look.

Another media howler...

In what is being described as an unnecessary blow, 100,000 first editions of The Times were pulped this morning. An article by Janice Turner about the porn industry was accidentally illustrated with a photo of a nubile woman performing a sex act on a man.
I presume some Times staff will have purloined a "collectors item".
