Osama killed, local news says "Obama" (twice)

I awoke this morning to the news that U.S. forces had located and killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

I cringed, however, when the male anchor at the local NBC TV affiliate accidentally said that "Obama" had been killed. I cringed again when a young male reporter then promptly made the very same mistake.

They both promptly corrected themselves. But these news "professionals" this morning sounded more like teabaggers.
