Accuracy in Media

CNN International flunked the world geography test on Monday while talking with Sara Sidner. Sidner was reporting from Tripoli when they showed an on-screen graphic of the city of Tripoli in Lebanon, not Libya where Sidner actually was.

 

Not only are Tripoli, Libya and Tripoli, Lebanon in different countries, they are on different continents, Africa and Asia.

Oops!

CNN International has since corrected the error.
