Jaw-droppingly bad media coverage

Fox news had this wonderful graphic last week showing the location of Japanese nuclear power plants:

That "Shibuyaeggman" plant looks rather close to the centre of Tokyo. Let's zoom in a bit:

There it is, just north of Shibuya station. Seems a bit strange to put a nuclear power station in such a densely populated area, where you might be more likely to find a live music club instead. Oh, actually, it is a live music club. They even have a disclaimer up on their website stating that they have no nuclear power plant and are powered by music instead. Maybe they had Blondie headlining recently?

But we expect that from Faux News. Surely CNN can do better?

Not really, no.
