CNN accidentally 'kill' Barack Obama with an on-screen typo

Osama. Obama. Potato. Potah-to.

But we've never killed off the President of the USA.

The news segment focused on Robert O'Neill, a Navy SEAL, who claims to have shot and killed Osama bin Laden in the 2011 raid on a Pakistani compound.

CNN eventually changed 'Obama' to 'Bin Laden' but not after the screengrabs had been taken.
