MSNBC stuffs up, puts Czechoslovakia back on the map
news.com.au ^ | 03/03/2014 | n/a

MSNBC should really Czech its facts. The American TV network has invited ridicule by stuffing up a map that was supposed to help explain the escalating crisis in Ukraine. Look just to the west of Ukraine on the map above and you’ll see a country labelled “Czechoslovakia”.

Of course, Czechoslovakia hasn’t existed since 1993, when it split into two nations. MSNBC’s map should have included Slovakia and the Czech Republic instead.

They can’t help it, Czechoslovakia has been gone longer than MSLSD has been around.

They don’t have the talent to create an area on a new map to show where Crimea is.

So they just found a old file map showing Crimea and it happened to be an old one with the old Czech Republic on it.

Not that that is any better.

Well, the US could breakup into New England/West Coast vs. Texas/Wyoming.

Let the Rats fend for themselves among the mold of Liberalism.

I think most University Depts of Geography have been gutted.

Slovenia is at the at the extreme north of Yugoslavia. “Yug” means “south”. So the Slovenes, Croats, Serbs, etc are South Slavs tribes.

Thnx. Elan skis used to be my favorites.

I was just about to sign up to go skiing in Yugoslavia when all heck broke loose.

Too bad the place got screwed up.

I don’t know what’s going on in Yugoslavia at the moment, but Slovenia is about as civilized as it gets. I drove through there about 37 years ago. Beautiful capital city (Lubiana). It has a long northern border with Austria and borders with Italy on the west. Slovenia lived under the Austrians for centuries.

Hey Paladin2;

Just think. You could have participated in a new form of skiing: Downhill Shoot the Skier Slalom.

IF would give you a good incentive to move your butt down the slopes a lot faster. Good training for the Winter Olympics too.

They've never liked Czechs at CNN either. Time for a classic:

Like any of their viewers would know. They could throw up a map of Disneyland and they would still call us racist for pointing it out.
