    A few others did too. BBC's web ticker had 'Obama dead'.

    MSNBC had someone say 'President Obama announced that President Obama had been killed as part of...' which was promptly corrected too.

    ITV did it too IIRC.

    Obama and Osama aren't really that close that the mistake would be 'easy' to make. I mean you'd know what you were typing/saying wouldn't you?

    The graphics team are probably under immense pressure to get graphics on screen fast.

    This is a good one...

    If Bin-Laden had spent more time playing COD he would know that camping only lasts for so long.

    Obama is dead again, Fox aren't doing too well with this......

    BBC News - Fox News hacker tweets Obama dead

    OK so they were hacked this time rather than made a mistake, but it's still funny!
