CNN Anchor Accidentally Calls Ambassador 'Michael Bolton'

In a report on the United Nations summit during the 1pm hour of CNN’s Live From, anchor Kyra Phillips confused the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., John Bolton, with another well-known Bolton:

Kyra Phillips: "Now, I've seen Michael Bolton sitting behind the President. Obviously not now, we're looking at different live pictures. Are we going to hear from him? Or have we heard from him?"

Richard Roth: "Well, you may -- you're not going to hear him sing. I think you said Michael Bolton, John Bolton the US ambassador-"

Phillips (embarrassed): "John Bolton. Richard, thank you so much. You're taking me back now to, what, the early '80s? My goodness."

At the conclusion of his report, Roth suggested another musician he could look out for at the U.N.

Phillips: "...Richard Roth, keeping me on my toes, stay tuned in with us. Let us know what happens, and definitely let us know if you have any sightings of Michael Bolton. I truly would appreciate it."

Roth: "Alright. How about Kenny G, or anyone like that?"
