In news that must have made foreign-national-hating newscaster Lou Dobbs’ blood boil, CNN apologized to the Chinese Foreign Ministry after Wolf Blitzer’s crotchety Situation Room sidekick, Jack Cafferty made true comments about the country’s exports. He went so far as to describe products from China as “junk” and referred to that country’s residents as a “bunch of goons and thugs”. CNN bitched out, claiming “It was not Mr. Cafferty’s nor CNN’s intent to cause offence to the Chinese people, and we would apologise to anyone who has interpreted the comments in this way.” Later, Cafferty claimed he was referring to the government and not the people. |TimesOnline|
