Wow. Just wow.

Huffington Post explains (h/t collegepolitico Stephen Gutowski):

CNN anchor Kyra Phillips had to apologize Wednesday after the network accidentally played a Coolio song featuring the N-word.

For a clip on a 103-year-old Pennsylvania woman who still drives, CNN played Coolio’s “Fantastic Voyage” to go into break.

The clip of the song they used?

“Ain’t no bloodin’, Ain’t no crippin’ / Ain’t no punk-a** n***a’s set trippin’ / everybody’s got a stack and it ain’t no crack / and it really don’t matter…”

“We aired some music just a few minutes ago, and, obviously for those of you that heard it, it was the wrong music that aired,” Phillips said shortly thereafter. “We apologize for that. It was a terrible mistake. And we’re working very hard to make up for it.”

Like Dan says: “What if this had happened on Fox?”

Over to you, NAACP, Al Sharpton, the Congressional Black Caucus, and FCC.
