Nope, wrong pope, dope: CNN suffers papal mixup

CNN committed a slight error this weekend when it covered Pope Francis' recent warning to excommunicate the Mafia from the Roman Catholic Church.

"Those who in their life have gone along the evil ways, as in the case of the Mafia, they are not with God, they are excommunicated," Francis said Saturday during an outdoor Mass in Piana di Sibari, Calabria.

And although CNN got the story and the quote correct, they mistakenly aired a photo of Francis' predecessor, Benedict XVI.

Francis warned the Mafia, not Benedict.

Lesson learned, CNN. Now go in peace and err no more.
