CNN & Geography: F-
It's a lazy Saturday morning here in DC, some veggin' on the coutch, and catchin' up on my current events. Unfortunately—as some of you have noted—I can't leave the job at the office. I have to say the "news art" team for CNN really jacked up their maps this morning. Reporting on Israeli strikes near/in Tripoli, Lebanon, CNN displayed a map showing the location the strikes. It was Tripoli, Libya. I just wanted to remind us all that toponyms are important. Because if Stephen Abrose's quote that "War is God's way of teaching Americans geography" is true: God and CNN just made us lose a bunch of IQ points.
