After White House’s hurricane map flap, CNN gets roasted for failing on basic geography


Working at CNN must be a real drag.

Sure, the “worldwide leader in news” probably pays pretty well, but that doesn’t mean that everything else operates on the up-and-up.

The network presented the graphic Sunday as part of a segment regarding Dorian’s path as it inches up the United States’ East Coast. The hurricane, which killed at least 20 people in the Bahamas in recent days, is presently lashing the Carolinas as a Category 2 storm.

Earlier in the week, the mainstream media went to town on a map presented in a tweet regarding Hurricane Dorian.  In the tweet, Donald Trump retired that an earlier forecast showed the storm ripping across the north of Florida and into the Gulf of Mexico – but which has since been obscured.
