AP Hearts Peng Liyuan, Amazing Race Apologizes

What the heck is wrong with the AP? They put out puff pieces on Peng Liyuan, China’s first lady, that start like this: Glamorous new first lady Peng Liyuan has emerged as a Chinese diplomatic star, charming audiences and cutting a distinct profile. . .

On a similar subject, Phil Keoghan apologized for the Amazing Race’s Vietnam segment filmed near a crashed B-52. The show required that the contestants sing a pro-Communist song: Vietnam Communist Party is glorious. The light is guiding us to victory. . .
