The network has been warning its viewers all day not to look at the sun unguarded.
CNN reporter Stephanie Elam stared directly into the sun, unguarded, while waiting for an eclipse on Monday, even though her network had warned viewers all day not to do so.
Reporting from Missouri, Elam looked directly at the sun twice in the span of a minute.
Eclipse-watchers are not to look directly at the sun without special eye protection because it will cause eye damage.
Other journalists took notice:
