CNN banner ‘changes’ Obama’s stance on Muslims

In a lower third banner that ran during its coverage of an event President Obama was attending, CNN omitted a key word that drastically changed the meaning of what the president said.

The network’s banner that aired under Obama’s image read: “Obama: Must ‘Stigmatize’ Muslim Community.”

Less than a minute later, the network swapped out the headline for a corrected version — adding the word “not,” notes NewsBusters.


The corrected headline (correctly) read: “Obama: Must Not ‘Stigmatize’ Muslim Community.”
