P4 Radio Hele Norge AS - 2 Stories

1) Thoresen-debut i morgen (Kjersti Morset) 4 October 2006
http://www.p4.no/story.aspx?id=207255In this story the Norwegian journalist writes about the provincial rivalry between the two Canadian NHL teams in the largest cities in the province of Alberta in Canada. She writes; " SI natt ble det avgjort at Patrick Thoresen er med i troppen til Edmonton Oilers serieåpning mot delstatsrival Calgary." She does not write what country this rivalry is in, but she does writes is that these two cities have a "state" rivalry. How can there be a "state" rivalry between these two Canadian cities when Canada does not have states? To be correct it should state in Norwegian: "I natt ble det avgjort at Patrick Thoresen er med i troppen til Edmonton Oilers serieåpning mot provinsrival Calgary." This is such lazy journalism, the wrong term for a Canadian province, and the country is not even mentioned. How can the Norwegians expect to be informed about Canada if so many in the Norwegian media can't even get the basic facts correct? An e-mail was sent to the journalist about her mistake and a reply was never received.
2) P4 (Oslo): Ut tur, aldri sur. (Katrine Von Nagy) 31 May 2007
http://www.p4.no/story.aspx?id=232441#
In this story the Norwegian journalist writes: "Bandet sto scenen foran 20.000 fans i Vancouver, USA." This is wrong the wrong country. The Canadian city of Vancouver is located in the country of Canada, not in the USA as you this journalist writes. An e-mail was sent to the P4, but a reply nor a correction has been received.
