The war of words between CNN and the KOT crew has been so intense since it labelled Kenya a hotbed of terror prior the visit by Kenyan-born US President Barack Obama. At Beijing, Kenya sought to redeem her image by branding itself a hotbed of medals.
Indeed, they have done it in style amassing an unassailable 7 Gold Medals and several silver and bronze medals leaving @CNN with rotten eggs on its face.
The spat saw President Uhuru label Kenya a hotbed of vibrant culture.
Kenya’s performance has been the best ever in IAAF history beating other great nations like Jamaica and USA.
CNN has persistently sought to downplay Kenyan success as a way of saving face.
It remains to be seen how long CNN will continue playing Ostrich by dipping its head in sand in the face of Kenyan success.
#SomeoneTellCNN that while they were away #KOT was announcing the medals we were winning!
