WH Press Sec Calls Out CNN For Mislabeling Southern State In Hurricane Dorian Coverage

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is going after CNN for mislabeling Alabama as Mississippi during their coverage on Hurricane Dorian.

Grisham shared a photo of the mishap on Twitter, sharing the mistake for all of the world to see. While the graphic was only shown on-screen for about 10 seconds, the internet is forever.

“Hi @CNN, I know you guys are busy analyzing lines on a map, but perhaps you use your time to study up on U.S. geography?” Grisham said in the tweet alongside the photo of CNN’s botched graphic.

Fox News reports CNN’s public relations team responded to being called out, quickly firing back: “Thanks, Stephanie. Yes, we made a mistake (which we fixed in less than 30 seconds). And now we are admitting it. You all should try it sometime.”

Fox News also reports the mistake comes amid a larger conversation about Hurricane Dorian and initially projected reports which showed that it may hit Alabama (the real one).

Trump boldly declared that Alabama was in the storm’s path and was lambasted by CNN and others in mainstream media. Check it out:

President Trump initially tweeted that the hurricane would hit Alabama, apparently prompting the National Weather Service to clarify that Dorian wasn’t headed in that direction. Amid criticism, Trump doubled down — displaying a chart in the Oval Office on Wednesday that appeared to be altered with a black marker.

CNN’s mistake was widely criticized online:
