CNN’s “mistake” while reporting the Kenyan College massacre early this evening.
I guess CNN is trying to pass message to some of their American viewers who thinks Africa is a country. Off-course this can be perceived by their other viewers as mistake. This is not the first time CNN is linking most talked about positive event to another negative one.
See more sample across the globe bellow.
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.

Dear @CNN, the area you marked “Nigeria” is actually “Niger”; Nigeria is the area below it. Get a map-reader, please! pic.twitter.com/e03Fv1pcC2
