"The Most Trusted Name In News"™

CNN Geography Failure
 H/T Jamie Wearing Fool.

I'm adding this to the Agency of Lies keyword because somewhere along the lines someone will point to CNN as proof that the Tripoli which the rebels have taken is not in Libya, Africa but really is in Lebanon, Asia-minor. The clock starts now.

P.S. For those living outside CNN's fantasy-land,  the rebels of which CNN speaks are in the Tripoli in Libya, N Africa and not the Tripoli in the neighboring continent.

For the record, yes there IS a Tripoli in Lebanon, but there was no reason for it to be in the news until today. It is now because CNN didn't know the difference. 

You may recall an old journalistic ethic that says that news organizations have an obligation to report the news and not to be cause of news (let alone invent it). Should there be a rebellion breaking out shortly in Tripoli, Lebanon, blame CNN for making the suggestion to them.
