  CNN or BBC have a larger hidden agenda which is to continue Western dominance of the world by influencing the minds of their readers and viewers through biased reporting and subtle twisting of facts. This is why they resorted to cropping out the pictures of violent protesters in Tibet throwing stones to fit in their propaganda that the protests were friendly. We Asians need not show too much respect for news organizations like CNN and BBC. Go for the alternatives like Al Jazeera and CCTV 9.

  Jack Cafferty is a truly un-cultivated guy, who has no knowledge of human race. He must be disbarred from his ignorant field, in which some childish commentors always speak out some irresponsible words to please their evil minds.

Love China, my motherland, For Ever!

  Ask that anti Chinese goon, Jack Cafferty that if those Chinese goods are "junks", how come they are so popular with American consumers? And how come those giant retailers like Wallmart, Kmart, Target, Sears, Home Depot,Lowe,Cosco,and Sam's Club continue importing them? Does Jack Cafferty care to admit that if not for China made goods,the inflation rate in America would have shot sky high by now? And if not for China buying the American bonds and Treasury bills, America would have gone broke a long time ago and possibly sunk like the Titanic! And also if not for those low price China made toys, how many American kids esp those from poor families would be able to enjoy those toys that get on Christmas day and on their birthday.

All the above facts go to show how dumb that Jack Cafferty guy is. He is shamelessly displaying his stupidity for all Americans to see. To me, he's just another one of those tv night clowns, not to be taken seriously.

Commentary: CNN owes China an apology for slandering
(chinadaily.com.cn)
Updated: 2008-04-16 01:43

The American Cable News Network (CNN) is making news with China, again. Last time, cnn.com editors chopped a picture with more than 10 stone-throwing Tibetan mobs chasing a Chinese riot police wagon nowhere to see, causing wrath of millions for photo doctoring. This time, an amateur anchor blasted out Chinese people as "goons and thugs" and Chinese-made goods as "junk".

Sixty-six-year-old Jack Cafferty, in a TV program called Situation Room that aired on April 9, obviously unhappy with China "holding hundreds of billions of dollars" of U.S. paper deficits, more and more American consumers "buying from (inexpensive) Wal-Mart", and certainly the "changed relationship" with China, moaned: "The Chinese are basically the same bunch of goons and thugs they have been in the past 50 years."

Many, assumingly including U.S. citizens, are stunned and shocked with such racist and vicious attack without any cover on a group of people. As a matter of fact, in the past years, Chinese people are getting on good terms with a huge number of earth residents, of different color, different language, from different continents.

As the head wind is changing its direction, Cafferty becomes sick.

So annoyed by Cafferty's despicable and shameless attack on an American national TV, American Chinese have launched an online petition, requesting an apology from CNN. The petition has got more than 40,000 signatures and the number of signatures is growing by the minute. China's Foreign Ministry, on April 15, also strongly condemned Cafferty's weird remarks, demanding CNN and the anchor himself take back the malicious remarks, and apologize to all Chinese people.

It is rare for the world audience to hear such a blatant discrimination against an ethnic group of people with such a derogatory connotation. What Cafferty did was using his privilege as a CNN anchor to insult China and slander all Chinese people. He is pathetic to have wantonly violated professional ethics of journalism and lost his conscience.

The United States is known for "melting-pot" culture, and the dangling "American dream" which have inspired people of different colors to emigrate to it. However, the like of Jack Cafferty, sitting before TV screens watched by tens of thousands of audiences in America and elsewhere, and attacking Chinese people, is nothing but showing its rudeness, arrogance, ignorance and hostility towards China.

After years of efforts by some Western media to demonize China has failed, the ink of Cafferty have come to the forefront to directly assault China, which reflects the utter frustration and despair of some wicked men and women.

The biased reportage on the Lhasa riot that took place on March 14 by CNN and some other western press has backfired. Tens of millions of Chinese, living at home and abroad, the young and Internet savvy especially, have rallied together. They have stood firmly behind the Chinese government and fought back the twisting journalists with one big voice: Stop doing it!

Angry with Cafferty's outburst, an increasing number of Chinese people have written on Chinese online chatrooms, demanding the Foreign Ministry deport CNN from China. China Daily website may not agree with the punitive measure, but a prompt and sincere apology from Cafferty and his organization is needed.

  China must be well prepared for all eventualities to occur in the next few years! As Chairman Mao had said before that the WW3 is still very real and it may become a reality one day. I see that this D-DAY is imminent given the fact that the Western economies are dwindling, unemployment rate is rising, living standards are deteriorating, oil and food shortages, commodities prices rising....They are taking every opportunity to 'corner, squeeze and attack' China by making unfounded accusations. This is just the beginning of the calm weather before the BIG STORM!

  America has had waves of hatred and biase aimed at different ethnic groups.

Some examples.

The anti-Chinese immigration legislation of he 19th Century which was aimed at keeping out Chinese who were able to mine gold out of places American miners had long given up on, and Chinese labors who were more efficient than Irish labors at building the railroad.


The anti-Japanese wave that occured during WWII when Japanese AMERICANS were rounded up long with Japanese nationals and put into interment camps. Interestingly nothing similar was done to German Americans on the East coast of the US. And interestinly no Japanese American was every found to have been operating on behalf of the Jpanese imperial government during the war.

The anti-Arab biase that took off in the late seventies when the Arab oil embargo occurred. This biase is still very prevelant in American society. Look how US foreign policy has basically done everything it can to thwart the Palestian people's drive for a permanent homeland.

Anti-Japanese feelings reemergedin the late 70s and early 80s in the US when Japanese auto started out performing and selling American made vehicles. They were accused of dumping cheap auto onto the US market. Interestingly enough at the height of these feelings, a Chinese American man named Vincent Chin who was mistaken for a Japanese by a mob of young American men was beaten to death on the streets of Detroit.

And now with the economic rise of China, China bashing is coming into fashion in the media. It started in the late 90s with scapegoats like Wen Ho Lee being falsely accused of spying for China. With China's rise many American's feel worried that they may not be as powerful after all, and the way they react is by trying to take down their perceived threat.

So let's keep things in proper perspective. China will face these attacs in part because their star is rising That is the reality. So instead of trying to close your ears off and throw CNN out of the country. China must take these attacks on and with the civility it is known for counter them with historical reality, lgeal means, and a PR offensive

  Cafferty's slip is showing the true colours of USA's ruling elite's fear of the rise of China. The USA can accuse others of censorship but its press are controlled by an elite (I am a conspiracy fan)that uses it to further their agendas. Do not blame others for your trade deficit and debt. Americans should learn to live within their means even if they have to accept a lower standard of living. The world does not owe USA a living. USA just spend too much on military adventures to control other countries for their resources in an ever diminishing return cycle. So leave Iraq, stop supporting Israels never ending military spending, pull your troops out of Korea and Japan, and in simple language, learn to mind your own business, learn to make consumer goods rather than weapons and above all, stick to good old fashion trading rather than military occupations.
