There must be some red faces today at CNN. Earlier in the day a CNN reporter in London filed a report about an “ISIS” flag spotted at a gay pride parade in London. It later turned out that the black and white flag, which did vaguely resemble the terrorist group’s banner — from a distance — but upon closer examination (upper right corner) it turned out to be a mock-up full of images of sex toys. CNN has since taken the video down and there is no mention of the story, although if you search for “gay pride” on CNN’s web site you’ll find an item headlined ‘Woman says she spotted ISIS flag at gay pride parade’ next to an image from the video but when you click on the link the page says “This video is no longer available.” You can, however, watch a version of the video posted on YouTube above.
