i am clutching at straws here, but is it possible the reporter is speaking from another tripoli in another country about the conflict in libyia, maybe she caught the wrong plane.

if not then oh my........ i don't know what to say.

edit to add: it is no wonder gaddafi's whereabouts are unknown, they are looking in the wrong bloody place!


The reporter was right in the thick of it, earlier when she was reporting, she had to move under shelter, she was in the midst of celebratory gunfire. She was in Gadhaffi's compound with the rebels.

Actually, Americans are a mix of many different ethnicities. Calling someone a racist for that is sort of jumping the gun, as the person referred to Americans in general. IMO, going around judging people about racism just shows how big someones shoulder chip may be.

On topic:
I feel that the geographic error was merely a mistake by someone using Google search to create a screenshot..

well in that case there is no doubt then, unbelievable a mainstream news outlet who broadcasts worldwide do not even know where libyia is, yet they claim to know everything else about the conflict.

Back to your CNN fail - good catch. Its no wonder they say that only a small percentage of Americans can find most countries on a map.


americans do get some stick for their geography, but it cannot be that bad really, you seem to beable to find the countries you go to war with, with ease, this proves that some can read maps at least and know basic geography.

unless of course......... no that can not be.......... surely not. i think if they ever announce they are going into syria, i will prepare my survival pack here in the u.k. just incase.

Wait...Tripoli is in Libya?

I thought this whole "rebellion" thing was over like 3 months ago before America's Got Talent came back on?! It wasn't on the news anymore so I figured it was over....

These Lebanese people need to fight their civil wars faster.

/end sarcasm

Maybe they just got off the phone with that reporter in Tripoli, Libya, and they were switching over to a story about Tripoli, Lebanon, and the guy that operates the map was a little trigger happy.


In most other situations I wouldn't be suprised, but come on this is too big to screw up. I don't watch CNN, but I'm sure they have spend a good amount of time reporting on Libya and Qaddafi, so yeah, fail.

We know the mass media is full of crap!!

At least the people who post on their views on the internet can think it through a couple of minutes before pressing the "send" or "reply" before it goes live!

We do know the difference between a island and a large land mass so I wouldn't worry too much, although judging by our rudimentary(at best) geography skills I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to invade Syria they probably would end up invading Houston.

I'm glad atleast they admitted it.


“Yesterday, 22 August, CNN mistakenly showed a map with Tripoli in Lebanon. We made the correction immediately and we regret the error.”

This isn't really that funny, it's more scary than funny IMHO. So when Syria gets attacked it's all one big mess of yea, all those ME countries are in the same area and yea, we're helpin them fight the good fight. Tyranny, jobs, saving lives, terrorism, hackers.
