MSNBC, Cincinnati is not Cleveland

Adding to my despond this election day was watching a report on MSNBC on the presidential race in Ohio. A graphic in the background showed Cleveland located where Cincinnati actually is, on the Ohio River in the southwestern part of the state. Where Cleveland actually is, in the northeastern part of the state on the shore of Lake Erie, was…nothing.

Here one could rant about the abysmal state of American education, but I think criticism should be directed more at MSNBC. Have you no editors there? Anyone who knows the basics of American geography?


Below, for the benefit of MSNBC is a map of Ohio. In case they don’t know where Ohio is, I’ve also attach a map of the U.S.A. cincinnati

    Problem is, the three largest cities in Ohio all start with C. TV has trouble keeping them straight.

  • In reply to burnrunner:

    And Hillary Clinton thought the "C" on her emails were an alphabetical filing system of some sort, and not anything to do with a security classification ("confidential).
