CNN Map Shows Eastern Ukraine in Pakistan Print E-mail

CNN had pre-empted its 24/7 news coverage of MH370 by discussing the 'Eastern Ukraine Referendum,' but viewers faced confusion, when a CNN map claimed Eastern Ukraine was located in Pakistan. 

According to Russia Today, "The American news giant, CNN, has reshaped the world a bit in their live coverage of events in Ukraine. The eastern part of the European country got pinned miles and miles away from where it actually is – in Pakistan."

CNN was unable to locate the Ukraine in the correct continent as well. For-the-record, Pakistan is in Asia, while Ukraine is in Europe.

As reported by Russian Today, "CNN was reporting Sunday about independence referendums in Ukraine’s eastern regions of Donetsk and Lugansk while also using a map to indicate the country’s geographical location. Apparently by mistake, the arrow with Ukrainian flag on top was pointing to Pakistan, South Asia."

CNN has suffered from a long history of notorious of inaccuracies in its reporting. One time, CNN penned an obituary on fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, and the irate fashion designer took to his Twitter account to say he was still among the living.
