MSNBC displays President Obama bus tour map with every single city wrong

There are four cities on this map of President Obama’s upcoming bus tour of New York and Pennsylvania, which was shown on MSNBC’s Martin Bashir yesterday afternoon. And all four cities are in the wrong place.

Bashir later called the errors an “honest geographic mistake” but he doesn’t explain how this map turned out so terribly inaccurate.

  • Thank you viewers (and Buffalo bloodline @lukerussert) for pointing out our erroneous PA/NY map…an honest geographic mistake… – @BashirLive

President Obama took grief after his appearance on Jay Leno when he made a geography gaffe of his own.

“…Let’s find a financing mechanism and let’s go ahead and fix our bridges, fix our roads, sewer systems, our ports.  [You know], the Panama [Canal] is being widened so that these big supertankers can come in.  Now, that will be finished in 2015.  If we don’t deepen our ports all along the Gulf — places like Charleston, South Carolina, or Savannah, Georgia, or Jacksonville, Florida — if we don’t do that, those ships are going to go someplace else.  And we’ll lose jobs.”

None of the cities mentioned are on the Gulf of Mexico.
