The latest instance of a major cable outlet confusing Sen. Barack Obama and Osama bin Laden comes from MSNBC tonight. At the beginning of Hardball with Chris Matthews, a graphic titled “Words About Words” featured an image of bin Laden. The story Matthews teased was about the Obama speech being called into question for “plagiarism.”
