CNN Buckles, Apologizes to China For Stating Truth

Seems that China got their panties all in a knot when CNN spoke the truth in stating that the Chinese were goons (think torch guardians, thugs killing Tibetans) and their products were junk. I give Jack Cafferty TWO THUMBS up, but am dissappointed that CNN caved in to China's demands. For the record, I am NOT BACKING DOWN, nor issuing an apology to the laughing stock of the Olympic community, creators of the Flame of Shame...China, for the most part (governmentally) you are a bunch of thugs and goons, and your products are junk, cheap rip offs made off of stolen technology...your country seems only capable of profiting off of stolen ideas, black market DVD's, and cheap slave labor. You want an apology, you can suck my dick. Call Condi Rice and complain...if she contacts me, I'll remind her of America's FIRST AMENDMENT.

BEIJING (Reuters) - U.S. television news network CNN said it did not mean to cause offence when one of its commentators said the Chinese were "goons" and that their products were "junk".

Jack Cafferty made the comments earlier this month on CNN's political program, The Situation Room, prompting an angry demand from China for an apology.

"It was not Mr. Cafferty's nor CNN's intent to cause offence to the Chinese people, and (CNN) would apologize to anyone who has interpreted the comments in this way," CNN said in a statement.

CNN said Cafferty was offering his "strongly held" opinion of the Chinese government, not China's people, adding that he clarified the point on Monday.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu condemned the "evil attack" by CNN on the Chinese people.
