NBC's Ann Curry Can't Find Illinois on Map

On the Monday "Today" show co-host Ann Curry was breaking down the delegate counts for each Super Tuesday state with NBC's political director Chuck Todd but when it came to finding Barack Obama's home state of Illinois on the map, Curry pointed to Minnesota instead.

The following exchange occurred on the February 4 "Today" show:

ANN CURRY: Okay let's talk about the home states because we've got Illinois--

CHUCK TODD: Right.

NewsBusters.org - Media Research CenterCURRY (pointing to Minnesota): --which is right here.

(Todd points to Illinois)

CURRY: No, wrong one.

TODD: That's okay.

CURRY (pointing to Illinois): No, wrong one. There we go.
