A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Near and Middle East

Last week, a snafu from CNN put Libya’s capital of Tripoli in Lebanoninstead(wrong country, fools).

This week, a Hitchhiker’s guide to the Near and Middle East dubs Lebanon the new Haiti. A stereotype associating our country with endemic poverty and corruption?

Nailed it.

Other favorites: ‘Evil drag queen,’ ‘child butchers’ and ‘Meh.’

Want more?  This guy is mapping stereotypes all over the world.
