On Tuesday, CNN, the cable outlet once dubbed the “least-trusted” name in network news, used a map in which Kentucky and Indiana were both mislabeled. And no one at the network seemed to notice.
“Let’s take first a look at the six o’clock hour right now when polls will be closing in Kentucky and Indiana,” said CNN Senior Political Analyst Mark Preston.
“Of course, we’re looking at a very important race in Kentucky where, uh, it has to do, uh, with the House of Representatives and of course in Indiana, we have a Senate race that is very much, uh, under the gun, a lot of people are watching it to see whether the Democrat can pull that out,” Preston added.
The whole time, he appeared to be looking at the map but apparently failed to notice the two states weren’t marked correctly even as he pointed to them. It’s possible he may have been looking at a green screen and may not have seen the incorrect labels, or maybe he just decided to not make any noise about it.
Nevertheless, it certainly provided fodder for a great deal of mockery on Twitter.
Here’s the video, as tweeted by the Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra:

If CNN commentators don't know basic US geography, do we really want their election analysis? I voted in Kentucky this morning.— Mimirosegm (@Mimirose22222) November 6, 2018
