CNN did it again. Apparently the key identity of ISIL killer’Jihadi John’is Russian President Vladimir Putin.
CNN just can’t seem to simply help themselves. In a written report confirming the identity of’Jihadi John’on Thursday, the headlines agency accidentally took down the picture of the ISIL-affiliated killer and replaced it with a picture of Vladimir Putin.
With US State Department officials constantly saying that Russia is really as bad as ISIL, perhaps it was just a matter of time before CNN would start mistake the Russian leader for Jihadi John.
The gaffe is merely the newest in what seems just like a never-ending and hilarious group of bloopers created by the international news agency about Russia and Ukraine, the final occuring just a week ago, when CNN accidentally annexed Ukraine to Russia:

Last summer, the agency had placed Slavyansk, an area in eastern Ukraine contested by Kiev and Donetsk rebels in Crimea about 500 kilometers southwest, in Crimea, which had broken off and joined Russia.
Earlier, commenting on referendums which had taken invest Donetsk and Luhansk regarding their status within Ukraine, CNN posted a graphic placing the referendum somewhere in Pakistan.
