Late night reporting has to be exhausting, and with all the scrambling around to come up with the breaking Bin Laden news on Sunday, people were bound to make mistakes.

Whether malicious or innocent, people unfortunately mixed up Obama and Osama during the coverage of the latter’s death in a Pakistani compound. I, for one, can see how you could mix up the names. They are only one letter off after all.

News Manager at YouTube Olivia Ma just tweeted the link to a video that the Washington Post has provided. It serves a round-up of the name-mix-up FAILS of the night. Funny, awkward and painful…it’s exactly what an end of the day YouTube video should be.

Painful video from @washingtonpost showing reporters getting “Osama” and “Obama” mixed up: http://youtu.be/Ly9s7-K3Zlg 20 minutes ago via web · powered by @socialditto
