CNN Airs Wrong Headline About Jerusalem Synagogue Attack

CNN made a noticeable mistake in its coverage of the Tuesday attack in a Jerusalem in which two Palestinians, armed with a meat cleaver and gun, killed four people inside a synagogue.

During CNN's segment, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat delivered a statement in response to the attacks. As he spoke, the network's banner headline below read, "Deadly Attack in Jerusalem Mosque."

Even as Barkat repeated the word "synagogue," the false banner stayed.
