(Newser) – OK, so perhaps it was not the best idea for CNN to introduce a segment about Sarah Palin visiting Chick-fil-A with the Pink song, "Stupid Girls." And it knows it. "The music selection was a poor choice and was not intended to be linked to any news story," a CNN spokesperson tells the Hollywood Reporter. "We regret any perception that they were planned together." The segment, which aired yesterday morning, began with CNN Sunday Morning anchor Randy Kaye noting, "Sarah Palin is apparently hungry for chicken and controversy."
