you can tell from the crawl that this was from a couple of years ago, if indeed it is an actual screen shot at all. i am dubious, as much as i would like to think faux news could actually do something like this.

Why should Fox bother itself with facts?

It is an actual screenshot, but it's also from July of 2009. You can Google it. Not sure why this is getting recycled now... I mean, I know why, but it's not news.

Lost a country, Fox News has...how embarrassing...how embarrassing!
Bachmann thought Egypt was the Capitol of Kenya, and Palin says she can see it from her backyard.

Fake. People always believe whatever confirms their prejudices.
PS Shouldn't we be above this bullshit? Or are you going to try arguing that MSNBC or whatever favored outlet doesn't make mistakes?

In absolute terms really shocking, in relative terms this comes as no great surprise.

Dont' blame FoxNews, the graphic was probably provided by the US State Dept.

It is not a surprise considering the ignorance and mental capacity (or lack there of) of their viewership.

They should've stopped and asked for directions!

If Augustus used this map in his campaign against Anthony and Cleopatra, the war would've gone very poorly for Rome. Jesus might have born into a very different world. But it looks like the producers at FOX News haven't gotten around to reading the New Testament yet.

Boy, that says it all about Fox, doesn't it? Too funny!

Granted, the US had only been at war with Iraq for EIGHT years when the pinheads at Fox posted this map.
Just wondering why Towleroad is picking up on this at this late date.

That's just sad... They propagandized a war in Iraq for nearly ten years now and they don't even know where it is.

A lot of US-Americans are unbelievably stupid and ignorant. And they are not going to change. They make do with Fox.

@Ted B.: The State Department knows where Iraq and Egypt are (even if you and the Foxwatchers can't figure out which state). I read about it, in WikiLeaks.

This is a really old Fox screen shot. It shouldn't be posted now as if it is being used in connection with the current crisis in Egypt. It is from a couple of years ago and was used in connection with a story on Iran.
