Local Anchor Accidentally Reports President Obama Is Dead

When breaking news occurs, mistakes are bound to be had.

Unfortunately, one local news anchor for Washington, D.C., Fox affiliate WTTG learned this the hard way last night while reporting on the killing of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden.

Watch the awkward moment below.

And if it’s any consolation, at least he wasn’t the only anchor who got their facts wrong last night. Observe:
