Accuracy in Media

nbc chris jansing

MSNBC’s Joy Reid may regret having colleague Chris Jansing on her program Tuesday after Jansing, who was reporting on the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit that is taking place in Washington, D.C. this week, told her that African leaders had great expectations for Obama since “he’s from Kenya.”

Jansing was responding to a question from Reid about the summit being a part of Obama’s legacy:

Yeah, the fact that he’s from Kenya. And the fact that when he was elected there were expectations on the African continent that he would do great things for them.


The Twitterverse was quick to react, as it usually is, in cases like this. Jansing reappeared on the program about 10 minutes later to correct her statement by saying that she meant to say it was Obama’s father who was from Kenya, but by then the damage had been done.

At least Jansing knew that Africa was a continent, unlike Vice President Joe Biden, who said it was a nation, when he addressed the summit.
