CNN Apologizes Under Lawsuit
World Journal, Posted: May 09, 2008
NEW YORK – Acting under a lawsuit filed by Chinese and Chinese American citizens, CNN issued an apology Wednesday for their employee Jack Caffery’s insulting comment about Chinese people, reported the World Journal. The plaintiff's attorney said he considers the words “regret” and “sorry” in the statement from CNN’s Vice President David Vigilante an apology. The plaintiffs said the statement is almost the same as one issued by CNN April 15 – with little sincerity. They are deciding on next steps. CNN’s public relations person Nigel Pritchard said there would be no other response from the network.
