Oh CNN! How someone could make this live TV blunder is beyond me. The rest of the world already thinks Americans are ignorant of everywhere else, this certainly adds fuel to that argument.
CNN on live TV, labelled Niger as Nigeria when showing an info-graph explaining the locations hit by the Ebola virus.
Trust Nigerians on twitter to hop on CNN asap to call them out.

Dear @CNN, Africa is not a country. If I can point to Tennessee on the map of the US, why is a country the size of Nigeria not known by you!

We know someone at CNN is definitely losing their job, or getting a serious write up.
