    This is from last week and has been a lame pass-around meme.
    I guess it shows that right wingers are more likely to freudian into lumping all american hispanics into one group. That said I've definitely said "mexican" when I meant hispanic before.

    I'm not. But I've seen this come up on various political blogs around the internet. After doing some research, I found out it was real.

    I'm just confounded by the amount of mistakes made by media ON BOTH SIDES. I know this is a editing error, but somewhere along the lines someone had to actually write that, and no one caught it. The left spreads misinformation as well (see Rachael Maddow) so I'm not trying to politicize this.

    For a multiple billion dollar media network watched by millions around the world, I would say that it is a stunning mistake that this somehow ended up on air.

    Do you suspect that this instance was an error or a malicious conflation, @WarDosAnjos ?

    "Mexican countries" is code for "shithole countries".

    This really isn't misinformation, like RBG passing away, it's just a goof having a brain fart.

    I understand this and I thought I was clear in saying it was obviously just a typo or error. I don't at all think it was malicious or intended, I just think it's crazy how it somehow got on live TV. You would think for a company that big that producers or someone would be checking
