CNN International Highlights Wrong Tripoli in Graphic

Yesterday, CNN International made a rather significant error while talking to Sara Sidner from Tripoli. The on-screen graphic showed a map highlighting the city of Tripoli in Lebanon, instead of the city of Tripoli in Libya, where the actual fighting continues to rage on:

Tripoli, Libya and Tripoli, Lebanon are not only in different countries, they are on different continents. A check of TVEyes shows that CNNI had on-air graphics showing the correct Tripoli as of this morning.

Update: CNN International has released a correction: “Yesterday, 22 August, CNN mistakenly showed a map with Tripoli in Lebanon. We made the correction immediately and we regret the error.”
