CNN ticker can’t place shooting location correctly

The editor of North Hills Patch, Richard Cook, noticed that CNN repeatedly aired a ticker headline saying the shooting at a municipal meeting Monday night took place in Ross Township, “north of Pittsburgh.”

The shooting actually took place north of Philadelphia, located on the other side of the state.

To make matters worse (and perhaps this was the source of CNN’s confusion) is that there is also a Ross Township north of Pittsburgh. Officials in THAT Ross Township apparently received some phone calls from concerned citizens.
