Erasing the inconvenient

Little Green Footballs reports that the CNN weather page had Isreal nulled out, so that if you looked up Jerusalem, it would be listed as “Jerusalem, null”. It also listed multiple former Arab villages that no longer exist, and lists “Palestine” as a nation. It’s another example of how Old Media doesn’t believe in the aphorism ‘You are entitled to your own opinions, but not your own facts’.

P.S. Now that this has been made too public, CNN has cleaned it up.

When it’s obvious and significant malfaescance on the part of political enemies, then all is forgiveness.
