    This was an epic fail by CNN. Do you think this was done on purpose? Or accidental? Definitely could be a racist act. It's a little old, but I found it and its crazy.

    Haha wow. I was certain it was fake until the apology afterwards. Surely it wasn't on purpose, but that most certainly goes under the "Epic Fail" category.

    Either accidental or reckless and/or embittered to the point of professional suicide. Or a collective prank by the crew, they'd certainly be tense and cynical enough.

    The better question is why a leading global news network has these types of stories or any need for contemporary bumper music beyond their own score. Is "hard" or international news really that unbearable to the daytime audience?

    Definitely fake. The person who created the video is racist, not CNN.

    It's obvious he pieced together two separate broadcasts with his own "funny" soundtrack in between.

    Why would they even have that music available?
    I think it was intentional, either as a prank or
    some sort of retaliation towards CNN!

    Why would they even have that song in their repertoire??

    I'm thinking it was some college intern just saying "**** it."

    TV Stations/Radio Stations are not like they used to be back then where they had a library with tapes/cd's/mixes..... Everything is digital now and they can stream/broadcast anything online or any type of digital content wich we all know can be had within seconds now n days..... It was clearly someone messing around but dang it I laughed :D....

    If the original music is true, then it's Coolio's - Fantastic Voyage. It was a popular song back in the 90's.

    Yeah. This is the one I saw a while ago and not nearly as bad as the first one. lol. It was a Coolio song that had the n-word in it and I can see how it was badly overlooked.
