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.
Proof that Scott Walker’s lack of college degree harms him? He couldn’t even conform to this NYT columnist’s ‘fact’
