News Anchor Made ‘Osama’/‘Obama’ Gaffe Three Times in Seventeen Seconds


Of all the “Osama”/”Obama” flubs on Sunday and Monday, this clip of an anchor on Canada’s Global TV is the most embarrassing by far. It’s not just the frequency of the mistake, but also her complete obliviousness to it. Do news anchors really not listen to themselves talk, at all? And the clip only lasts a few seconds — who knows how long this went on? Minutes? Hours? She may have never uttered the word Osama the entire night.
