CNN clamored into breaking news mode over reports of an explosion at the News Corp headquarters in New York this morning. At first CNN thought Fox News was the target of the attack. Fox News is based in News Corp's Broadway headquarters.

CNN dropped the breaking banner when one of their producers reported, "there are about 100 people outside waiting to go into their offices...but no stretchers with people on them." And while the producer was describing how Fox News wasn't destroyed, CNN anchor Heidi Collins couldn't resist blurting out, "Oh!" Next time the control room producers need to cut her microphone!
