CNN Mourns Anna Nicole's Death with See Through Dress Footage To Remind Us... of Something

Just like most of you, we will really miss Anna Nicole.

She was a trainwreck but she was our trainwreck.

CNN provided the best live coverage of the tragedy with a three-way interview of Larry King, Nancy Grace, and Wolf Blitzer while they ran B-roll in the background. Then they had a lawyer speak as more clips rolled on.

Of all the video of Anna -- a woman who never met a camera that she didn't like -- was it absolutely necessary for CNN to use the clip of her in such a sheer dress that it probably shouldn't be airing at 3pm, when kids are coming home from school?

Obviously CNN is in shock and just pulled the first thing that popped out at them.

Sure Anna was someone who wasn't beyond posing nude, having a nipple slip, or full-on soft porn, but the woman just died. When Britney Spears dies, can we count on CNN for showing us some sweet upskirt pics?

After the jump Lou Dobbs promoing his show by warning/promising viewers that he won't be talking about the former Playboy model.
