The Newsroom Interns on Channel 4

Ah....the breathless text:

We are following a tactical situation on Milwaukee's south side.

There is a large police presence in front of a house.....

Oh.  The South Side?  Where??

18th and  Center. 

Umnnhhhhh......dear 20-year-old intern.  GET A MAP.

Center Street is on the NORTH side of Milwaukee.  It's so 'north' that it is north of North Avenue.  Look it up.

And yes, I realize that map-reading requires skills, and knowing "north side" from "south side" also requires a little time spent with your elders (and betters....)
