US at Geography

The ever-vigilant Jon C pointed out these classics.

It is claimed that very few Americans ever leave their country. But surely the US news media employ someone with a smattering of geographical awareness.

CNN has decided that London should be moved to Norfolk. And it thinks that Cornwall is not only a city in the south west of England but that it is far more important than Scotland or Wales.


Tripoli is now in Lebanon and not Libya. No wonder Gadhafi's whereabouts are unknown.


Cannes has been moved from the French Riviera to the north west coast of Spain. Remember to turn your deckchair through 180 degrees the next time you're there.


Finally, even entire continents aren't safe in the hands of Chicago's WGN.


Controversy? You bet.
