Well, looks like the Huffington Post isn’t the only outlet that needs a brush-up on geography.

CNN mixed up Boston and New York City in a map on the winter storm that is currently hitting the U.S.  A map showing three cities – Chicago, New York City and Boston — missplaced the two major East Coast cities. See image above.

Mediaite has video of the error.

Last month, the Huffington Post wrongly IDed the U.S. state Hawaii as an “independent country.”
