Hilarious CNN Headlines Tying Obama to Serial Rapist-Killer in Cleveland

Screenshot taken November 4, 2009 at 6:31 pm

I doubt that it was an intentional pairing of top news stories, but I found odd CNN's simultaneous display of news about suspected serial killer Anthony Sowell right next to a story asking the question "Is Obama inspiring black men?" The implication, of course, is that the brutal killing of at least eleven Cleveland-area women was somehow related to the historic presidency of Barack Obama.

After chuckling, I had to make sure that it was the website of CNN that I visited and not FOX News. Ba-da-boom!


Anyways, I did not PhotoShop this CNN faux pas as some sort of a traffic-building stunt. However, any links to the post are always appreciated.

We always thought there was something fishy about that Obama and now we know!

I notice those interesting juxtaposes often in newspaper articles as well. Sometimes an innocent old lady's photo appears next to a bank heist investigation.

Congratulations on the dissertation. Must we address you a 'doctor' now?

I still have to pass my defense. I hope that this happens in late November.
