I hope I'm not the only one angry about Mattel's admission that they lied to the world when they blamed their recent recalls on lead paint used by manufacturers in China. Mattel has destroyed the business reputation of an entire country and should bare the full consequences. Unfortunately, due to the anti-Chinese bias of much of America's media, we will probably hear very little about this story. Shame on Mattel.
