The error was fixed very quickly, but not quickly enough to stop the ridiculous attacks suggesting that CNN DELIBERATELY mislabeled him and "presumably" left it mislabeled.

From Newsweek

"As pressure mounted around Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam regarding a yearbook photo from 1984, the Democratic governor released an apologetic video on his Twitter account. But when CNN aired the video on Anderson Cooper 360 Friday evening, it labeled Northam with an (R) as Republican, and then removed the electronically-generated caption, or chyron, and later replaced it with (D).

But with a world quick on the electronic draw, social media quickly and fiercely tabbed the Cable News Network as falsely portraying Northam as Republican."

This tweet (shown at the link) says Cooper called Northam a Republican prior to the video, but instead Cooper actually identified Northam correctly as a Democrat, but the chyron is what mislabeled the governor."
