CNN outdoes Fox in the geographic illiteracy stakes

CNN map error, San Francisco and Los Angeles switched, San Onofre misspelled

Hot on the heels of Fox News’ nightmare map mash-up of Japanese nuclear power plants and nightclubs, Thursday’s American Morning on CNN had that rarest of things – a treble map fail.

Both San Francisco and Los Angeles are in the wrong locations – OK, switched really, but it still counts as two – and to complete the hat-trick, San Onofre is misspelled. Notice they did actually get the spelling right in the overlay.
