CNN Sued for $1 for Every Person in China

...That's $1.3 billion. The lawsuit is against CNN, Turner Broadcasting and Jack Cafferty who made the 'offensive comment.'

I haven't watched CNN in quite some time, but I used to like Cafferty.

"Cafferty said the United States imported Chinese-made "junk with the lead paint on them and the poisoned pet food" and added: "They're basically the same bunch of goons and thugs they've been for the last 50 years".

In New York, Liang Shubing, the beautician, and Li Lilan, a Beijing-based elementary school instructor, claimed Cafferty's words insulted all Chinese people and "intentionally caused mental harm" to the plaintiffs, the Ta Kung Pao newspaper reported on Thursday.

Six lawyers were handling the case for Liang and Li, it said.

"The $1.3 billion averages out to $1 per Chinese person, so it isn't much," the newspaper quoted a lawyer as saying." (source)

CNN should have to write the check while sucking on one of the lead toys...not because I give a crap that the Chinese were offended, but because the Left loves Communism so they should have to embrace what it produces...
