    Not the first time

    And then they get offended when you don't know where the various states are!

    Russia Today like pointing these gaffes out. They reported that Fox News took a video of the greece riots, with greek lettering in the background saying "National Bank of Greece" and tried to pass it off as a youth riot in Russia!

    Interesting use of 'Ulster' there, especially if you're in Swindon too...

    depends if you're watching TV in Ireland and seeing those damned Brits talking about Ulster when they mean the little rump of Empire that is Norn Iron or watching the Beeb/ITV/Ch4 etc and blissfully clueless of the difference (like the Yanks I suppose with the errors above).
