At Winter Olympics, Kim Yo-jong’s propaganda works on mainstream mediaPolitics February 13, 2018
I am the child of parents who escaped a Stalinist dictatorship in what was then called the Hungarian People’s Republic. My father was imprisoned and tortured by the secret police before finding safe harbour in the UK.
Thus, I am acutely aware that there is true evil in this world — and that it is embodied in despotic regimes like the one my parents fled then, and like North Korea is today.
People like my parents risk life and limb everyday to escape these living hells, which makes it all the more stupefying to see the Left and mainstream media fawn over Kim Jong-un’s sister, Kim Yo-jong, while they cover the Winter Olympics in South Korea.
Sister Kim, as you may have heard, is the Director of North Korea’s Propaganda and Agitation Department. She seems to be good at her job, too. She certainly won over the likes of CNN, which celebrated her impressive style. Other outlets likened her to Ivanka Trump.
Watching the devolution and sheer sycophancy of our media outlets harkens to the Walter Duranty days, when the New York Times Moscow Bureau Chief sang the praises of the USSR.
We must not allow the fake news industrial complex pervert history in such a grotesque and reckless way.
