Anti-CNN fervor in China has died down somewhat in recent days, but the movement still appears to have some legs, with one Kunming lawyer suing CNN and commentator Jack Cafferty for Cafferty's reference to China as "goons and thugs". Danwei reports:
"...Life News, a Yunnan newspaper, reported on its front page about a Yunnan lawyer who has launched a lawsuit against CNN and its commentator Jack Cafferty. This is latest of a string of similar legal actions both in China and abroad."
"The lawyer, Wu Kaiguo, filed a lawsuit with the Kunming Intermediate Court demanding a public apology by CNN on the "international mainstream media", and one yuan in damages. In an interview with the newspaper, the lawyer denied that self-promotion played any part in his motivation."
