A Twitter user is alleging that CNN managed to play 30 minutes of pornography during a slot which was supposed to go to Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown.

The colossal screw-up was reportedly only aired in Boston, and likely a mistake by the area’s cable provider RCN.

 

 

The story unsurprisingly blew up on social media, but is it true? The Twitter user @solikearose has now protected her account, claiming harassment.

Mediaite took a screenshot of RCN’s response to Rose, which stated “We have not had any programming reports of the programming issue you mentioned on CNN in Boston.”

There is has been no evidence on Twitter that anyone else saw the pornography on CNN. One can only assume that if an entire city saw pornography on CNN for 30 minutes, more than one person would notice it and RCN would be flooded in complaints.

Fake news (may have) struck again.
