Warning: National Anthem’s Playing

CNN warned its audience that they were about to hear an excerpt of the National Anthem. It said:

“Please be advised you are about to hear an excerpt of the national anthem.”


Needless to say, the warning was a mistake. The Daily Caller’s Eric Owens has CNN’s explanation:

The warning was the result of a mistake by an employee, a CNN spokesman told The Daily Caller. It stemmed from the employee’s unfortunate interpretation of a company policy which, respectfully, only allows “The Star-Spangled Banner” to be played in its glorious entirety.

Thus, the warning wasn’t about the substance of the national anthem. It was about the fact that the video contained only part of the song.

“The graphic was included in error and has been removed,” the CNN spokesman said. “The video remains on the site.”

  1. I’m going to have to throw the bullshit flag on this one. There is a trend in most media aiming to make Americans ashamed of their nation, and to jealously guard and protect the feelings of those who hate our nation. This was no mistake, this was simply another step in that direction. Explain (lie) all you want. Your aims are painfully obvious. You’re just upset you got called on it.

  2. I think CNN intended the first message and were shocked there was a backlash
