Typo: MSNBC correspondent Norah O’Donnell accidentally reports on Twitter that ‘Obama’ killed

(By Chris Moody, The Daily Caller) - In an attempt to release the news of Osama bin Laden’s death quickly late Sunday night, MSNBC correspondent Norah O’Donnell accidentally reported on Twitter that “Obama” had been “killed” instead.

“Obama shot and killed,” Norah O’Donnell posted on Twitter, citing NBC Chief Pentagon Correspondent Jim Miklaszewski as her source.

It was announced Sunday that Osama Bin Laden, who orchestrated the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, was killed by American forces. President Obama addressed the nation to deliver the news around 11:30 PM EST.

O’Donnell later removed the post.
