CNN plays Coolio song with n-word 

After airing a segment about a 103-year-old Pennsylvania woman who, at the time, was still driving, CNN decided to follow the centenarian as she got into her two-tone Coupe de Ville. For reasons unknown to everyone, the music they chose to accompany the clip was Coolio's "Fantastic Voyage." Now, it's unclear whether the woman's skin or the fact that she was driving a Coupe de Ville are to blame for the musical sampling.
