公司了解到主持人卡佛帝(Jack Cafferty)在本月9日播出的時事評論節目「時事會客室」(Situation Room)中的評論引起了公眾的關注。CNN澄清，無論是卡佛帝本人還是公司本身，都沒有冒犯中國人的意願，如果有人覺得因為此言論受到侵犯，CNN對此表示抱歉。
We are aware of concerns about Jack Cafferty's comments related to China in the context of the upcoming Olympics, which were broadcast on The Situation Room on April 9, 2008.
CNN would like to clarify that it was not Mr. Cafferty's, nor CNN's, intent to cause offense to the Chinese people, and would apologize to anyone who has interpreted the comments in this way.
CNN is a network that reports the news in an objective and balanced fashion.
However, as part of our coverage we also employ commentators who provide robust opinions that generate debate.
On this occasion Jack was offering his strongly held opinion of the Chinese government, not the Chinese people –- a point he subsequently clarified on The Situation Room on April 14.
It should be noted that over many years, Jack Cafferty has expressed critical comments on many governments, including the U.S. government and its leaders.
