What's wrong with CNBC?

With the markets in free fall and Super Tuesday just around the corner, America's favorite business news channel suffers a brain freeze.

From The Wrap

As news about the spread of the coronavirus gets more serious, a health-related map posted by CNBC offered a moment of absurdity Thursday. The map mislabeled almost every single state, eliciting a sort of Wait, what? double-take response from news consumers.

Axios chief financial correspondent Felix Salmon called it “the most glorious chart of all time.” See it for yourself via the Sun’s Chris Spargo, who posted a clear screengrab, here:

My take: At least they got California right.

    The list of things wrong with CNBC is too long, this is just another example. I haven’t watched them in 10 years. They have always been negative on Apple so I’ve just ignored them. Not surprised their talking heads wouldn’t know that the map was wrong.

    Oh the shame, they labeled Kansas Kentucky and vice versa. As a Kansas Basketball fan I’m insulted.
