We've been duped!
Well, luckily we don't have to worry about the news media in North America blowing things out of proportion or blatantly falsifying stories!
Oh wait... Dan Rather is the man!
Just a friendly reminder to not believe everything you read in the newspaper or see on TV.
This guy who was selling the cardboard muffins was just a small time food vendor, wasnt he?
There have been plenty of other dodgy food reports from China.
Why is this cardboard guy being made a scapegoat(unfortante git), to distract from the issue that China needs to put more quality controls on the food sold at food outlets and the packaged food produced for export. This is true, in my opinion, even if this particular incident with the cardboard is indeed a hoax.
