CNN Anchor Accidentally Refers to Ferguson as ‘Fergustan’
FERGUSTAN: CNN Anchor Renames Troubled Town (Truth Revolt)
On CNN on Saturday, anchor Jim Sciutto referred to the city of Ferguson, Missouri as "Fergustan" during a segment of Newsroom covering the militarization of police departments in the United States. The slip-up occurred when he was describing gear used by police in Ferguson in the last few weeks.
"Just this hour, we learned that President Obama wants a review of federal programs that allow police departments to purchase surplus military hardware like we saw on the ground in Fergustan ... Ferguson in the last few weeks."
