Close enough...CNN got the planet correct in 1 out of nine possibilities. Geography does not appear to be a CNN strong suit.

It was early Saturday morning and I was switching channels. CNN had a story coming up about bees in China, then that popped up on the screen. I saw it at 6:45 am, so it looks like it was shown several times before they caught it ...

I didn't see this.

But I did see a couple of graphics on FNC recently--I think it was Saturday--that caught my attention: One spoke of a "fiery car rash" in Tennessee; and the other mentioned President Obama's canceling his planned "strip" to Asia.

One has to wonder if these were just innocent mistakes; or if the person in charge of the graphics was being cute...

There’s only two things you have to know to work at CNN.

1. The toilet has one handle and the sink has two handles. Don’t wash your hands in the one that only has one handle.

2. When’s payday.

My favorite is the drying paint channel, especially beige paint.

Let's see, CNN got the wrong continent, wrong hemisphere and wrong side of the equator. And Brazil is about as far awang from Hong Kong that you can get on this planet.

CNN got the planet correct in 1 out of nine possibilities.

Actually, in anticipation of CNN possibly getting this wrong, the number of planets was reduced to eight when Pluto was demoted to an asteroid that's part of the Kuiper Belt.

I have noticed that among most Obama voters among other things like ? arrogant, rude, self centered, immature, no clue of reality, always have to be right and never do wrong.

Based on his Jeopardy score, I'm guessing Wolf Blitzer is in charge of graphics and chyron editing at CNN.

Its CNN. The Communist News Network! They are in almost every airport around the world spewing their left wing propaganda. Right or wrong never enter into their programming, only agenda driven commentary is processed.

QVC had the Capidemonte Hour, and I have the full set. The Lint Channel was showing a rerun. LOL.

If you saw Sunday’s news on CNN, they corrected the mistake. They realized Hong Kong is nowhere near Brazil. They then showed exactly where Hong Kong is.

It is a suburb of Chicago.

Most of CNN's viewers are from outside the USA and I guarantee they did recognize the error. It's an embarrassment.

Agreed. There may be enough alcohol, but I can’t choke it down fast enough to make the stupid go away.

I find it somewhat amusing nobody has asked me what the answer I get is. I think everybody already knows.
