This is the fourth part of our continuing series on the Roast of CNN, when they had the audacity to label Kenya a "hotbed of terror". Read part one, part two and part three here.
They actually did apologize...eventually.
Tony Maddox, CNN’s Global Executive Vice President and Managing Director, flew in to Kenya to personally apologize to President Kenyatta and to Kenyans:
“We acknowledge there is a widespread feeling that the report annoyed many, which is why we pulled down the report as soon as we noticed. It wasn’t a deliberate attempt to portray Kenya negatively, it is regrettable and we shouldn’t have done it. There is a world at a war with extremists; we know what a hotbed of terror looks like, and Kenya isn’t one,” said Maddox.
Thanks CNN, it's nice when people can admit they are wrong. Even when they sneak into other people's countries to do so and don't even talk about it on their own news channel.
