Video: Did The CNN Live Election Analysis Show A Porn Site Logo During Broadcast?

A silly clip went viral Friday morning that appears to show a notification from porn website Pornhub popping up on CNN’s magic wall.

In the video, King looks like quickly swipes the notification away and the result is pretty humorous.

In the now-viral video, which was shared without sound, CNN anchors Wolf Blitzer and John King discuss new votes counted in Pennsylvania, a key battleground in the presidential election. When the camera cuts to King in front of the Magic Wall, a Pornhub banner can be seen at the top-right of the screen, and he quickly flicks it away and shoots a knowing glance at a producer off-screen.

As if to cleanse himself from the porny-ness of it all, King then appears to wipe his hand on his jacket before proceeding with his electoral college spiel.

The following tweet has been making the rounds, purportedly showing the Pornhub Incognito logo appearing during a live CNN broadcast about the US election, and the news anchor appearing to react to it:


The tweet “CNN had Pornhub open,” has been liked almost 60,000 times at the time of publishing. It has been viewed nearly three million times as of Friday morning.
We can’t really find any evidence that this happened.

There’s also some analysis in the replies suggesting it was doctored, but the news anchor reaction seems a bit too genuine.
However, News Week disputed the video as false!

From News Week:

Uploaded by an unverified Twitter account, the video has no audio and if you look closely, the Pornhub notification doesn’t actually appear on the magic screen, but instead sort of floats over it, making it clear that it was edited in.

What do you think?
