There are a lot of things that smell with this article.... First, I find it
hard to believe that a company would post a job description identifying a
particular nationality as "no need to apply." Second, the story was
originally broadcast on FOX, a station that is known to inflame it's
viewers. Third, does anyone know who this company is???? It sounds like a
planted storied to me designed to make news that is designed to inflame
viewers and increase viewership .... ie., revenue. With the state of the
media today, it's hard to determine what really is news and what is
fabricated. This whole story sounds fabricated.

Then again, I doubt that I would be called in for the first interview for a
company like this....and I work daily with individuals from China, Japan,
Germany, France, India, Mexico and Korea. I have never had a problem with
them, nor they with me, because we all show respect for each other. However,
with that said, I also have a reputation for not being PC when it comes to
my professional opinion.
