Last week I missed the episode Paula Zahn had on Chinese adoption and adoptive parents motives for choosing China versus other countries or even domestic adoption. I did read the transcripts and was disgusted by what I read. I've never been a big fan of CNN but I couldn't believe some of the ignorant, rude and misinformed comments that came out of the guests mouths. The fact that they were given a forum to spew this garbage just amazed me.
Well, tonight there was a follow up my guess is due to the amount of emails they received from adoptive parents. They had a recap of what was said last week and actually hearing what I read just made my blood boil. I now truly understand the outrage I was reading about. You could tell that the show was put together very quickly because Paula Zahn was stumbling all over the place. While they at least brought in some people involved in the adoptive community, they didn't really address the issues as to why people adopt internationally versus domestically. One of the guests from last week (Martin) didn't make any apologies for his behaviour the other one (Uygur) did. While they at least tried to address the issue and "fix" the damage, in all honesty, the segment was just not long enough to do the topic justice.
