CBS tried to hide Barack Obama’s Super Bowl Pick. Here’s what it was

CBS had a novel idea during President Barack Obama's interview. Instead of having him make a public Super Bowl pick, they asked him to make a private one. Gayle King from CBS This Morning handed him a piece of paper with the Panthers and Broncos logos on them, asking him to circle one. To take the pressure off, King said they would read the prediction live on the air Monday morning.

There was just one problem: Nobody told the producer not to cut to the camera over Obama's shoulder.

So congratulations Carolina Panthers!
