This Weekend In Inaccurate Reporting: CNN and Fox News Edition

CNNMistakeHong Kong is not located in South America, and President Obama did not offer to fund a museum dedicated to Muslim culture as the government remains shut down.

Those two facts did not stop CNN and Fox News from erroneously leading viewers down those mistaken paths this weekend.

On “New Day Saturday,” CNN was reporting on giant hornets in China, and featured a map on the screen. Unfortunately, the map placed Hong Kong squarely in Southeastern Brazil (see the photo above). For more memorable map errors, see some of our previous coverage.

On Fox News, anchor Anna Kooiman referenced a report that President Obama offered to pay out of pocket for a museum of Muslim culture to stay open while the rest of government remained shut down. Unfortunately, that report was from a parody website, and had no basis in reality. The Huffington Post has the video.

Update: Kooiman apologized in a tweet.

Heather Childers and Ainsley Earhardt Named Permanent Anchors Of ‘Fox & Friends First’

Bug_and_bump_FNFF4_0_HWFox News Channel has named Heather Childers and Ainsley Earhardt the permanent anchors of “Fox & Friends First.”

The early-morning newscast airs from 5-6 AM, leading into FNC’s signature morning program “Fox & Friends,” and providing more fast-paced updates on what happened overnight and the evening before.

Childers has joined Earhardt on weekday mornings for the past few weeks, but FNC is now making their appointment official. Earhardt joined FNC in 2007 as a correspondent, while Childers joined the channel as a correspondent in 2010.

“F&F First” has had a number of guest hosts since it launched in March, 2012, but Earhardt and Childers were among the original hosts, alongside Anna Kooiman.

‘The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson’ To Debut At 2 PM On Fox News September 30

Gretchen_CarlsonFox News has confirmed that former “Fox & Friends” co-host Gretchen Carlson will be taking over the 2 PM hour on the network starting Monday. “The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson” will be preceded by an of “America’s News HQ,” co-anchored by Bill Hemmer and Alisyn Camerota.

Carlson’s new show “will focus on all current events from general news and crime to politics and investigative reports,” according to a statement from the channel.

“I am thrilled that Roger Ailes has given me the opportunity to host a signature show for Fox that will focus on the real stories of the day,” Carlson said in a statement. “From in-depth interviews to social media interaction live during the show, I look forward to joining viewers in the afternoon for smart and straight-forward talk. Plus, I now get to have breakfast with my kids and maybe even drive them to school! How great is that?”

Carlson’s new show is the latest chess piece being moved on FNC’s game board. Shepard Smith will be giving up his 7 PM show to make room for Greta Van Susteren, but will become the channel’s breaking news anchor. Meanwhile, Megyn Kelly is moving to 9 PM, while Sean Hannity is shifting to 10 PM. In the morning, Elisabeth Hasselbeck replaced Carlson on “Fox & Friends.”

With Camerota moving to weekdays, “Fox & Friends Weekend” will also be looking for a new co-host. We hear that Camerota’s last show will be this weekend, with Anna Kooiman filling in for now.
