CNN strikes again – mistakes Austria for Australia
Published 01/03/2016 | 13:21
Everyone makes the odd mistake (let he who is without sin cast the first stone) but CNN has been making quite a few of late.
The US cable news channel has recently captioned a photo of Vladimir Putin with 'Jihadi John', mistaken a dildo decorated banner for an Isis flag, and mixed up their sums so they got a total of 110 per cent in the Scottish independence referendum.
Now they've mistaken Austria for Australia, leading to the hilariously inaccurate headline, "Australia Building Fence at Slovenian Border".
This seems a little paranoid for an island nation thousands of miles away. pic.twitter.com/6jTLYhGwqz— Matthew Yglesias (@mattyglesias) February 29, 2016
