This Photoshopped image of Obama holding up the fumbled CNN headline on an iPad quickly surfaced on the Internet. The image references an infamous media screw-up in which the Chicago Tribune misreported the results of the 1948 presidential election, calling it for New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey instead of incumbent President Harry S. Truman.
Truman held up the botched front page of the paper during a stop at St. Louis Union Station, calling it "one for the books."
