Fox News Seems to Think Arizona Looks a Lot Like Arkansas

If you're a Fox News viewer, you may have noticed that the Supreme Court apparently ruled against a voter ID law in Arkizonasas earlier this week.

A few people who have seen a map of the United States before noticed that Fox ran a graphic of "AZ" during a segment on Arizona, although that graphic labeled "AZ" is the state of Arkansas.

Fox isn't exactly on a roll with Arizona issues, as you may recall the network showed a suicide outside of Phoenix on live TV back in September.

Somehow, the folks at Fox managed to miss their error on the Arizona/Arkansas map, as it showed the same graphic later on Monday during Shepard Smith's show.

A Media Matters post from a couple years ago shows this certainly isn't the first time that Fox News employees have completely failed to label maps.
