No, the president of the United States was not facing rape allegations.
While covering the story of a rape suspect having charges against him dropped on Friday, San Diego TV station KSWB-TV made a painful error: The station aired a picture of President Barack Obama with the story, complete with a “no charges” caption under his photo, the Times of San Diego reported.

“Yeah, there was an accident when they had an over-the-shoulder” display, KSWB assignment editor Mike Wille told Times of San Diego. “It wasn’t on purpose.”
The Times noted that KSWB did not note or apologize for the error during its newscast.
