NBC apologizes for eliminating New Hampshire in news map

(Continued)

People on the streets of New Hampshire rolled eyes, shook heads, laughed and tsked-tsked over NBC’s error.

“It’s par for the course,” said George Calligandes of Londonderry. “I’m from New York and when I moved here some of my friends thought New Hampshire was part of New York. I have to tell people I’m from Boston for them to know exactly where I’m from.”

Amanda Butler, a young mother shopping with toddlers, pondered New Hampshire as Vermont, and responded: "I don't hink I’d be too happy living in Vermont."

Sister Juliann Parent of Derry, a retired schoolteacher, had a suggestion: "We’ve got 50 states and they can’t figure that out? They need to get out more.”
