TV News Report Wrongly Accuses Chinatown Market Of Selling Dog Meat

How awkward and awesome is this? WCCO, a local Minnesota news station, falsely reported that a Chinatown market was selling dog meat. The problem was that the reporter confused what the Chinese employee said as “dog” instead of “duck.” After the story aired, “New York state inspectors raided the Dak Cheong Meat Market and didn’t find one bit of proof that they were selling dog meat. Chao Fang, an employee at the market, talked to the Post, which somehow correctly understood what he said and quoted him accurately.” The kicker? Fang also said, “‘How could we sell dog meat? This isn’t China. This isn’t Korea.'” Oh snap! But he has a point. Get it straight, journalists. Chinese people eat CATS.

About Moye

I am a Japanese-American girl who was born, raised and is most probably stuck in traffic right this second in Los Angeles. I'm currently one of the co-editors of 8Asians and like to distract myself with good food, reading long books, playing video games, catching up on celebrity news, choosing my new new haircut and then writing all about it on Hello Moye and sometimes here on Twitter if I can get it in under 140 words or less. You can reach me at moye[at]
