CNN is here to demonstrate just how bad Americans are at geography (again)

It's no secret that Americans aren't very good at world geography.

It's also no secret that cable news channel CNN really needs to get it together. Just a few recent reporting f--k ups from the channel include:

  • mistaking a dildo covered flag for Isis

  • getting a total of 110 per cent in the Scottish independence referendum

  • captioning Vladimir Putin 'Jihadi John'

(Really, though, the list just goes on and on.)

So. Just imagine if the two were to somehow combine in a clusterf--k of roundly epic proportions... like mistaking Australia for Austria.

C'mon, CNN. Where do we even begin with this?
