Closest location with similar name is Cares around 200 km East from that point.
what's interesting is that 99.9% of their dwindling number of viewers would think that the above was a spelling mistate
I half expected them to be showing Caen, but they can't even get the right frickin' country.
And there are videos that say FoxNews makes you stupid. When will people realize it's the entire MSM that make you stupid?
Only ZH makes you smart!!!
Smart? If you'd been following closely you'd have noticed that they've been kicking Cannes down the road for months...
What is CNN?
Cartoon network Its for the kiddies
This should even make the Spanish unhappy.
Diversion tactic to send the OG20 protesters to the wrong country?
Ther Germans should start sweating. That's Normandy. With the Italian campaign floundering, a new front there would be bad...
I hear ya... the Ostfront is going to hell as well
They speak galician in Cannes nowadays
How they made it to the beaches on D-Day is beyond me...
That was Caen..... not Cannes
Cans, Cain, Caen, Cannes, its all so confusing...
Don't forget Cairns down under.
Who, CNN?Remember the fucking Charles Jacko reporting on the Gulf War 1.0? Blue scree, stoned waiting for the pizza deliveries in NYC?That's fucking how.News, my ass.
Show us your Cans. Oh you just did. Never mind.
Yes We Cannes
apparently geography isn't CNN's forte
Apparently not! Cnn apparently sharing the same room with Fox News?!
Neither is truth or news. I tend to get all of my information from the internet and all of my disinformation from the TV/radio.
Right. The very format can shrivel neurons.
It isn't an american forte for that matter.
Hey, Americans are not all geographically challenged, buddy.
I, for example, can tell you immediately that Cannes is the capitol of France, and that Moscow is the capitol of Belarus.
Im stunned with this overwhelming knowledge of Belarus as a country. You must have geography Ph.D in USA! Your 100K+ salary is well earned! :D
Actually, I am not as stunningly brilliant as I appear to be.
For example -- I can easily find BielaRus on a map -- but I can never find ChernoRus!
I know it must be around there somewhere.
You made my day with that reply MR!
Hats off. :)
... for security reasons.
neither is news
"apparently geography isn't CNN's forte"
sadly, neither is news
Good Citizens of Metropolis!
It's all gonna be OK. Don't panic.
Just gather your pork and beans, and head to the nearest bomb shelter.
The sky ISN'T falling.
It's all cool.
Spiral Eyes, you have a new blog!
Reminds me of a piece by TheOnion where the US State Department discovered that Andorra is not a poor African state but got billions in aid anyway...
Ron Paul’s view on foreign aid: Take money from the non-rich people of a rich nation to give to the rich people of a non-rich nation.
Of course Dr. Paul does not support that current practice, he is just explaining our current system of foreign aid. Please give the United States a chance to survive, vote for Ron Paul in 2012.
If you want to survive, you must SECEDE from DC, not fucking vote for it again!!
I am voting for him as many times as I can.
There is a picture of a scrotum on your post.
"Those are balls!.."
Ron Paul's postion is NO foreign aid, period.
He said foreign aid currently is taking money from poor people and giving it to rich people, so that's his 'view' (i.e. opinion on foreign aid as it currently exists), but its not his 'position' (no foreign aid).
Your comment is ambigious, either by design or by stupidity.
I suppose Cannes rhymes with San Sebastian, which is reasonably close to the plotted location. Coversely, perhaps CNN just reflects that a majority of Americans couldn't even locate Texas on map of the US. Good luck.
US education system for you. Who needs geeografy anyways...
So my friends was right when he claimed he was holidaying on Portugal's Mediterranean coast!
need more coffee...I dont get it
Born in the USA! Baby
The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plains.

Looks like the optics on my AR-15. Place the dot on the thing you want to drop.
Since Spain is a member of PIIGS is CNN sending a secret code to the bond vigilantes to lock and load and enter the free fire zone that is Europa.
Ah yes... I remember this vividly:
Is legal eagle awake this morning?
I'm not sure 'awake' describes his condition at any time of the day.
Location, location, location
Then my friend you are not an European :). Cannes is in France.
He thinks that IS France.
Cannes is not on the English Channel. It's on the opposite side of France, near Monaco (close to Italy)
That's no where near the English Channel.
SPADOC4... geographically challenged
I keep hearing about the English Channel once in a while, but I can never find the damn thing.
What kind of shows do they run? Old Monty Python and stuff like that? Man, I love that.
I typed in CAEN, France.
Was still on my first cup of coffee
That dot is in Spain. Cannes, France is not.
I don't get any of this.
If Strasbourg can be in France, why can't Cannes be in Spain?
duh, Cannes is on the mediteranean coast...yup not from europe and apparently dont watch gay film festivles much.
Apperentily you don't watch regular porn either -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kD9MyXEJZnw
Where is Greece then? 5 inches right of Shitland?
Judy Collins: "Send in the Clowns...."
Well those PIIGS are going to be paying their debt off with land swaps so anything is possible. How much does Spain owe France anyway?
Brilliant. Maybe that will give Sarkozy justification to annex Spain.
No comment necessary
Cannes in Spain, bitchez!
Dude. You look like Jon Corzine. Yo!
Google Maps gets it wrong sometimes guys!
And radical leftist governments sometimes use this as sufficent evidence to try and seize land from neighbors.
Nicarauguan military moved into Costa Rica to secure the land google maps showed was theirs. Seriously.
What do you expect?
Recently my son was the only kid able to name all the European countries on a map in his honors high school "Cultural Studies" class...
It was easier in my day. There was only one Yugoslavia.
It is even easier today - no Yugoslavia at all.
I like this approach. Seems to work just fine and you should develop it.
yacht charter corfu | yacht charter lefkas | yacht charter skiathos | yacht charter kos | yacht charter rhodes
good to know they are teaching higher level thinking in the 'honors' class.
Cultural Studies? Shouldn't that be geography?
It should be "Social Studies", but that sounded too Socialist so they went with Cultural is my guess. The only observation I can make is that your mark in the course is inversely proportional to the amount of TV you watch...
Hell, my 8-yo daughter called me to tell me that the latest National Geographic arrived and that there was an awesome map of the Rift Valley....
Let me know when the Nat Geo edition with floppy titties arrives.
You are not likely to find the lack of cultural harmonization funny. Foreign nations have heavily invested in America. Politically things will have to change to favor carrot over stick but I'll say something: The establishment is demonstrating here they have so totally malinvested their media funds toward sun-god worship and class worship as to render income producing assets far less valuable and supply chains prone to self-suicide by the population. Global schorched earth may be an outcome but it certainly isn't any kind of plan.
As some have noticed, I am making comments encouraging learning the history of your fellow earth travelers to prosper. Management of foreign investment toward growth in America requires expanding past one's own biases. It is a small world but ignoring historic cultural proclivities will now cost you.
I like to see how a culture utilized math such as metric system and geometry to organize in Eastern countries. Then look at the concepts that drove the success of a culture. I find that discussing the successes with foreigners allows them to explain failures as well and how they view plans to address them. Some food for thought. Literally ;)
what better place than to kick the cannes, no?
An upside down view, that is rather prescient.
and France is Spain is plain mad
Maybe the red circle represents where a virus-infected Predator drone will mistakenly attack. Instead of wiping out the famous film festival, it will snuff out some innocent Galacians...
Obviously CNN Cannnn't
My wife is always doing that. "Come up and see us!"
We live south of them. She does have a nice can.
north is not up...
Things are so confusing in europe, they can't even keep their countries straight.
This is how OBAMA! passes for being born in "Hawaii". On CNN's map, Hawaii is dot in the African continent.
Really?! I thought Kenya was one of the Hawaiian islands.
This is the sort of thing which makes the world think Americans are dumb.
When they have this kind of evidence, it's no longer an opinion.
Spik fo yosuf- i aint dombp!
Is that CNN based Atlanta, Maine?
Nope, Atlanta, Texas.
Good thing the ETA has decided to lay down arms.
CNN = Corporate News Network, a gathering of idiots, liars and criminals, doing propaganda for the US oligarchs and the US regime.
Funny that in English they have a separate CNN for Europe, because the version they feed to Americans is even worse, and would be even harder to stomach for people here.
Jacques Chirac had hoped France24 would become a truly independent news network to counter American propaganda, but France24 is not living up to its promise. It is more 'me, too' Western news.
Russia Today and Al Jazeera are doing a much better job of being independent global news, though of course each is subtly indicative of pressures from their own home regions.
But it's significant how dissidents inside America now, can more often relevant helpful video on Russia Today than from their own homegrown 'news'.
"Russia Today and Al Jazeera are doing a much better job of being independent global news"
Exactly. By far the two best global news channels in the world.
Both of those are anti-propaganda networks, as in, they deflect Western propaganda and then proceed to further their own interests. The interests of those who fund them at least.
You are correct GM. But everyone who has at least one brain cell alive and kicking knows whose money is behind RT, AJ, CCTV, Iran News or any other news agancy but at least I can get there real old journalism with good quality panels like Cross Talk or the Dialogue.
Guess what's on my third screen right now as I am replying to your entry? RT, Press Tv, CCTV, Bloomberg, Cnbc, C-span, Aljazeera .... but no CNN or BBC nor circus of them all Fox News! I got fed up with all of those broken institutions few years ago. If I want negative (all the dirt there is) news about Russia, Iran or anyone else, I've got it all in my over 500 rrs feed subscriptions on a daily basis! All the "goodies" updated in real time, backed up daily and stored off line!
But to be fair toward CNN, they too have some quality programming. On Sunday if I have time, I like watching State of the Union, Situation Room and Fareed Zakaria GPS and that would be all CNN has to offer for people like me!
Now that's funny. They are such liars, it is so ingrained, that they have to lie about what country they are showing you. Pathological Lying News Service. At least the Onion lies to you to make you laugh, all the while subtle truths are hidden in the text. Here, blantant truths are hidden, for all to see, in the lie, and you cry.
If the weather people said "The Rain is in Spain" I wonder what they would show us?
sigh..... WTF CAN'T PEOPLE EVEN DO BASIC GOOGLE MAPS ON TV?
Jesus, to think I was watching CNN mere 3 years ago
If CNN says so, Cannes must surely be where they put it. Stop always be contrarian and believe the news!
Maybe they got the leaked EU remapping?
Anyone with any intelligence or integrity left CNN long ago. They must hire from the same pool of high school dropouts as the Huffington Post.
That's what you get with Affirmative Action and minority employment discrimination programs... don't get the right talent, just get the right kind.
It's what happens when visuals are offshored to the lowest bidding content provider.
I bet they would have gotten Bangalore correct...
So fkin lol. Is this real?
Another product of the modern education system!
Did the French invade? Or is Spain selling off property?....that should say New Caanes, France. Napoleon has been resurrected!
Actually Napoleon is on that screenshot too...

The mainstream media is a JOKE in every respect.
There are college 'educated' people who could visit there on vacation, never know they were in the wrong place and come home happy with photos and trinkets to share. Is it so surprising they can't read a map when they can't spell or identify the basic elements needed in a story?
Perhappens they moved Cannes for the meeting? You guys can't be sure about that. I would check with CNN first! Kinda like kicked the Cannes.
You mean CNN broke security and this is where they are really meeting?
Hey, right continent. What you worrying about.
Pick a country. Any country.. Geography is not taught in school
Quick, a map of Wall Street with a target on Washington, DC.
CNN is based in Atlanta, Georgia. 'Nuff said but I'll quote from http://monster-island.org/tinashumor/humor/newmex.html
Olympic volleyball fan and New Mexico resident Wade Miller recently tried to order Olympic tickets by phone, but found out operators for the '96 Games were "geographically impaired," according to the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. After telling the operator he was from New Mexico, Miller was put on hold. The operator then came back and said she couldn't sell tickets to someone who lives outside the country. Miller spent half an hour trying to convince the agent that New Mexico is a state. She then transferred him to her supervisor who responded, "Sir, New Mexico, old Mexico, it doesn't matter. I understand it's a territory, but you still have to go through your nation's Olympic committee." ACOG officials said the incident was a one-time occurrence. (Lyle Harris, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 2/2)
I hope the guy that did this doesn't want to become a surgeon after he gets fired.
No, all of you are the idiots. Ever hear of plate tectonics? Well? Big shift we're seeing here, whole regions moved. Atlas shrugged.
xcept that Atlas aren't even the same mountains
Bandgap, you wish to discuss Polar Wander? Seems every 26,000 years we go through this. The peak of volcanic activity is almost here. Not to sound obtuse but the global death toll is a few million, nothing technology can't prevent to minimze casualties in the future. We're all going to be here in 2013. It is the man-made weather one must be prepared for.
I guess CNN does not use the internet to check any facts ... and hires the idiot kids of people the MSM has made popular.
... I feel sorry for the kids.
Oh, it doesn't matter if we could get our illustrious President to speak on the issue!
Yes we Cannes! Real hope and (geographical) change you can believe in!
You just cannot make this shit up.
Since we lost that Amanpour chick we can't find anything
THIS IS WHY I LOVE AMERICANS TO MUCH!!!
You rule the world, but you get lost into it :)
We love you too, Little Green European Person.
Remember the Borg?
What people don't know is that there are two types of Borg. The ones on Star Trek were always the Soviet-style Borg. They say things like:
"We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile."
But the American-style Borg are so much more fun! They really do love you. They say things like:
"Dude, your culture is so cool! Have a candy bar! Hey you want a loan? You can't get these iHeadset things without a loan. But it's cool, we'll give you zero percent!"
We love you all to death.
Amen. Kill their culture with "kindness."
You can't spell 'CaNNes' without 'CNN'.
apparently when your world is all about politics, learning is not that important. Like in the gov't schools.
CNN-- the Cracker News Network. 90% of what they show are missing persons cases, dogs run over on the 75/85 in Atlanta, and random snippets of 3rd World misery, interspersed with Wolf Blitzer's fear mongering. Slightly demented 60-somethings seem to like CNN a great deal.
Now if Fox had done that..........
They have a number of times.... the reaction here at the Hedge is not quite as upbeat...
Fox News is a bunch of fucking lieing douchebags and CNN is mind numbingly irrelevant....
For objective news, re-runs on TV-Land are a better bet.
Cannes, France. That's where Atilla the Hun came from, right?
And like the rest of the day's events, a Hollywood script writer couldn't have dreamt this stuff up!
Oh we are SOoo screwed!
Spain IS the new France.
if no one knows where it is does it really matter where they say it is. if no one knows it is not true does it matter if they say it is true.
this is why i get all my news from RT or keith olbermann on Current
CNN works this way - get a wire story, hand it to some kid who re-writes it and pulls up some shitty video to accompany it, then air it. Have you noticed the current tendency to loop a video piece an endless number of times while some jerk is speaking? And to think I once worked for the ClownNewsNetwork.... egads, may god forgive me!
