CNN was forced to apologize today after a news commentator called the Chinese as a “bunch of goons and thugs”.
Jack Cafferty made the comments on April 9 on CNN’s political program, The Situation Room, in which he also described Chinese products as "junk".
In a statement, CNN said: “It was not Mr. Cafferty’s nor CNN’s intent to cause offense to the Chinese people, and we would apologize to anyone who has interpreted the comments in this way.
Cafferty was offering his “strongly held” opinion of the Chinese Government, not China’s people, the company said.
Below is the video of Cafferty, the quality is lacking but
you will be able to tell what Jack had to say.
I'll bet Senator Mitch McConnell is really proud of his Chinese pals for taking on Jack Cafferty!
