CNN Sued for More Than $1.3B for Chinese 'Goons' Comment!


www.foxnews.com

A Chinese primary school teacher and a beautician have filed a suit against CNN in New York over remarks they say insulted the Chinese people.

They want $1.37 billion in compensation - $1.06 per person in China, a Hong Kong newspaper reports.

The case against the Atlanta-based cable channel, its parent company Turner Broadcasting and Jack Cafferty, the offending commentator, comes after 14 lawyers launched a similar suit in Beijing alleging that Cafferty's remarks earlier this month violated the dignity and reputation of the Chinese people.

Cafferty said the United States imported Chinese-made "junk with the lead paint on them and the poisoned pet food".

He added: "They're basically the same bunch of goons and thugs they've been for the last 50 years".

Can they really do that? I doubt it. Me thinks the trial lawyers of America would have been chomping at the bit to get some of that action.

China problems of late:
Tibet oppression
Dali Lama attacks
Cisco router spying
Lead paint in toys
Poison pet food

Time to go to Walmart?



*Walmart = any ole national box store

OK - then I file a counter suit for 2 Trillion dollars. That should work out to something like 200K per US Citizen. Thats for all of the crappy lead toys and dog food the Chinese have allowed to come over.

You know anyone can file a law suit over anything, but that doesn't mean your going to get jack (pun intended). This is a joke and if anything will only garner more criticism toward the Chinese.

I like Jack Cafferty. He says it like it is, and he has the best strategy when it comes to voting. He says if you don't like what's going on in Washington, then vote all incumbents out, no matter what party they belong to. I've also heard him call politicians "goons". Should he expect a class action suit from them as well? They are going to want 9 trillion to pay off the national debt.
