Roflz. Sometimes I wonder if the people at Fox News do it on purpose or they really are that thick and couldn't be bothered to check such basic facts.

Typo! Nah, that's FOX news!
Prediction of the future? Hmm, if they really can predict, they would've shut it down long ago. :biggrin:

Don't know why we are bothering to look for kosher food at these markets here. According to this map we could walk to the ultra Orthodox area in Jerusalem were everything is kosher.
"honey! Get the shopping cart please, lets go..." :smile: I like FoX now. Thanks Borek.

Look! This family is making Rosemary Chicken for dinner. They are coming back for the carrots. :tongue2: They do things a little bigger in Israel.

It's a hoax.

Twitter has been abuzz today over an image from Fox News showing a map of the Middle East. What's the hubbub? Well, for starters, the map shows Egypt as being where Iraq should be, and, we guess, some other anonymous country in Egypt's spot. But the bigger news is that the image is, in fact, old news. It was originally circulated two years ago, presumably to show that Fox News doesn't know where Iraq is on a map.

That's not what I'm reading in your link!



It seems to be an old but genuine error. Or "error"...
I know, that's what I posted. The hoax is that it's being spread around the internet that it just happened.

Fox News Fails to Find Egypt on the Map

It's Sad when Fox News Can't Find Egypt on a Map!

April LaJune, Yahoo! Contributor Network

Jan 30, 2011 Considering news happens fast and breaking news is even faster, it's been about five days or so since the uprising in Egypt. This seems like plenty of time for Fox News to get a clue as to where the riots are happening on the map, you'd think, but apparently, they are having a little trouble locating them.

With Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps and any other graphic of a map available on the Internet, more maps of the African continent are available at the touch of a button then ever before. However, Fox might want to use the excuse that the World Wide Web is down in Egypt therefore it's affecting their ability to find it somehow.

Hopefully this "contributor" isn't being paid.

What is wrong with this map??? I did not have to go to Israel, Israel came to us here.
Though the folks in Las Vegas, Nevada, might be a little nervous that one day soon they may not be serving drinks and people many not be gambling much either. What else could one do with Las Vegas, Nevada?

D'oh? Look how cozily Iran and Syria snuggle next to them... I'm sure there won't be any hanky panky after lights-out.

Seriously, what could go wrong when the most populous Sunni and Shiite Muslim populations share a huge border and now one is dangerously unstable...

You pinched Borek in his pretty face? :surprised Aaaaa! No wonder you got an infraction.
I pinched someone too and got an infraction. I think they don't like pinching around here.

You did get an infraction, I never knew! Actually, those infractions expire now, so I am removing it. You now have zero points.
