It’s almost not surprising that this happened.
In the rush to release the major news that Osama bin Laden was dead, MSNBC correspondent Norah O’Donnell reportedly accidentally reported on Twitter that ‘Obama’ had been killed instead.
“Obama shot and killed,” O’Donnell posted on Twitter, citing NBC Chief Pentagon Correspondent Jim Miklaszewski as her source.
O’Donnell, 37, later removed the post.
Instead, her latest tweet — dated April 29– now says: Watching @datelinenbc for all the wedding highlights! @AnnCurry giving all the behind the scenes details.
In addition to MSNBC, O’Donnell also appears on The Today Show, The NBC Nightly News and Dateline.
