Fox map eliminates countries

During its Iowa Caucuses coverage, Fox News displayed this map of Europe that contained numerous errors.

Hungary, Austria, Macedonia, Croatia and Slovenia,  Bosnia, Herzegovina and Montenegro are all missing. Bulgaria is shown on the former territory of Yugoslavia. Fox also misplaced Serbia.

  • This map wasn’t exactly part of Fox’s caucus coverage. That lower third was used during commercial breaks to keep viewers apprised of current totals while the commercials ran. The image you see is part of a 5-second bumper promo ‘Fox: Where the News Is’, that showed a spinning globe and a ton of cities and countries whizzing by. Pretty much indistinguishable unless caught in a freeze frame.
