At least, a CNN spokesperson claims the network didn’t mean to offer the intro song as commentary on Sarah Palin’s intellect prior to a short segment on CNN Sunday Morning regarding Palin’s support for fast-food chain Chick-fil-A, which is mired in its own public relations crisis right now. The song in question — Pink’s “Stupid Girls” — was the first single off her 2006 album I’m Not Dead. “The music selection was a poor choice and was not intended to be linked to any news story,” a CNN spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter, adding, “We regret any perception that they were planned together.” So it wasn’t selected for a particular story, someone at CNN just thinks “Stupid Girls” is a great song to listen to while you’re watching the news.
