Have you heard any reporters mistakenly say Obama instead of Osama?

    Seems like Obama and Osama are being said so often, I think people are getting tounge tied...

    I just heard a reporter say Obama was shot above the left eye icon_eek.gif

    I have actually heard it all across the spectrum and think in most cases it's just people misspeaking.

    I haven't watched any reports (don't watch TV), but I have taken extra care to type "Bin Laden" instead of "Osama" because the type would be way too easy.

    Even The View today did a montage of all the reporters, even big name anchors, who have messed this up.

    Yeah, it's an honest mistake. Has happened quite a bit, even on the non Fox sources. I think newscasters should try to think a little, rather than mindlessly read/skim from the teleprompter. icon_lol.gif

    The problem is that in many cases even the teleprompters had mistakenly out "Obama" in stead of "Osama".

    FOX News was the only "news" outlet spelling it Usama instead of Osama, right?
