CNN has apologized for what it says “was a poor choice” of music to accompany a news story.
The story was about Fox News contributor and former GOP VP candidate Sarah Palin, who was visiting a local Chik-Fil-A fast food restaurant. The song was “Stupid Girls,” by Pink. Some viewers noticed the correlation, and complained vocally.
The Hollywood Reporter received a statement from CNN apologizing for the incident, which it says was not intentional.
“The music selection was a poor choice and was not intended to be linked to any news story,” a CNN spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter. “We regret any perception that they were planned together.”
