Liberal hotspot TPM Cafe reports on yet another Barack Osama, I mean Barack Obama controversy:
Oh, man — first CNN, now Yahoo News. As you know, CNN has apologized to Barack Obama for putting his name on a picture of Osama Bin Laden. Now Yahoo News has committed the opposite blunder: On their photo page, the caption on their photo of Obama reads, “Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida.”
If demanding apologies are what liberals are all about, then why have they not demanded an apology from Ted Kennedy?
ALSO: Check out the photo’s caption:
US Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) listens to testimony in front of the Federal Advisory Board on Radiation and Worker Health in December 2006 in Naperville, Ill. International news network CNN has apologized to US presidential hopeful Obama after it mistakenly pasted his name on a caption for a story on fugitive Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
It mention’s CNN mistakes. Meaning, Yahoo most likely captioned this picture due to its algorithm picking up “Osama bin Laden”. TPM is rushing to conclusions.
