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.”

Matthews apologized 15 minutes later: “You may have noticed the graphic over my shoulder. A picture we showed over our shoulder, that was a mistake earlier in the broadcast. We apologize for the error.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time:

Glenn Beck‘s slip up
• CNN’s verbal and graphic errors
