The media is enjoying the Olympics more for the novelty of the North Korean Dictator’s sister being in attendance. Even the South Korean President is gushing over the meeting of the two countries. It is like the media and other powers that be want us to believe that we just need open communication with North Korea and give them a chance and we can all be friends.
I remember a time when reporters and journalist dug deeply and thoroughly in order to report the facts. Instead of applauding the dictator’s sister on her splendid looks, they might take a page out of Vice President Pence’s book and talk to the real people of North Korea for some of the facts about life in that country and why thousands are taking dangerous chances every day to escape the country.
Or, just listen to the young man in the video whose father has been arrested and sucked into the death camps of that country. His father is a United States citizen. Why isn’t that front page news?
