Chinese Nationalism

The CNN television channel stoked anger not only with its coverage of events in China, but also with some intemperate remarks made by a curmudgeonly in-house commentator, Jack Cafferty. He said that although America's relationship with China has changed a great deal, “they're basically the same bunch of goons and thugs they've been for the last 50 years.” Few in China were mollified when he later made it clear that he had meant China's government, not its people.


You mean they're a different bunch of goons and thugs?
