Sri Lanka: CNN, get your facts right

CNN Money has an article that appears to betray bias and ignorance. Vindicated rips the piece to shreds. “Colombo being mainly Sinhalese enemy capital: I don't know about you but I'm pretty sure that Colombo is the last place in Sri Lanka that's mostly Sinhalese. Being the only city in the country, it is the most cosmopolitan home to not only Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims but a significant international community as well. If the LTTE think that Colombo is the Sinhalese capital of Sri Lanka they are as misled as you the nitwit journalist are.”
