    And not in a PR way, either.

    The same week that the Beijing government summoned CNN's Beijing correspondent for a stern talking-to regarding Jack Cafferty's blunt statements regarding the Chinese government and its manufacturing quality, somebody initiated a denial-of-service attack on CNN's web site. CNN's efforts to counter the hacker attack caused service in some areas of Asia to be limited, slow or unavailable.

    <blockquote> The attempt came as tech-oriented Web sites in Asia were reporting calls from hacker groups in China for denial-of-service attacks to be launched against the CNN Web site on Saturday over the network's coverage of unrest in Tibet.

    Angry Chinese bloggers have accused CNN and several other Western news organizations of being unfair in covering recent pro-independence protests in Tibet, which is controlled by China.</blockquote>
