CNN shows Charles Barkley mugshot while he speaks about Donald Sterling (VIDEO)

CNN may want to update their photo image files — especially for some of their own.

The news network had TNT analyst Charles Barkley on the phone to discuss Clippers owner Donald Sterling's alleged racist remarks Saturday night. But as Barkley spoke, CNN used his mugshot from a 2008 DUI arrest on the TV screen, making the former NBA star appear slightly less credible as he gave his thoughts on the controversial owner.

CNN and TNT are both owned by Turner Broadcasting System, which means the only photo CNN could find of a fellow employee was a mugshot — making the error even more embarrassing.

Next time try using Google.

As for the outspoken Barkley's thoughts on Sterling, he said during halftime of the Pacers-Hawks game that this is the first big test for NBA commissioner Adam Silver.

"You can't have this guy making statements like that. He has to suspend him and fine him immediately...We can not have an NBA owner discriminating against a league that's...we're a black league," Barkley said.
