, , , ,

http://twitter.com/#!/mkaplan59/status/439522296911634432 In fairness to MSNBC, they’ve been a little too busy obsessing over Chris Christie and “Bridgegate” to update their maps in order to properly cover what’s going on in Russia and Ukraine: http://twitter.com/#!/AF632/status/439522090580840448 http://twitter.com/#!/MangyLover/status/439521655727988736 The correct map: http://twitter.com/#!/MelissaTweets/status/439520587401007104 Or this one would also be acceptable for MSNBC use: http://twitter.com/#!/EvanMcSan/status/439520482748923904 Read more: http://twitchy.com/2014/02/28/time-to-change-your-map-msnbc-graphic-shows-country-that-hasnt-existed-for-over-20-years/

, , , , ,

http://twitter.com/#!/Willowy04/status/509425906713374720 As Twitchy reported, DiGiorno Pizza caused a social media uproar last night after sending this inappropriate tweet in response to a domestic violence awareness hashtag: http://twitter.com/#!/Posietron/status/509177819801587712 It took him a while, but MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow finally caught up on the story: http://twitter.com/#!/Foxxi_Love/status/509427625950183426 And promptly made himself look like a colossal jackass: http://twitter.com/#!/RonanFarrow/status/509425280176648194 So, basically, Farrow […]
