North Korea and Our Media . . .

The Olympics are especially interesting this year with the participation of North Korea. Our media is enthralled with the appearance of the North Korean dictator’s sister. The news has been full of their delight in her appearance, her snubbing of Vice President Pence, the Olympic participants from North Korea . . . It goes on and on as they make North Korea the center of interest.

The media, as usual, has a short-term memory problem when it comes to facts, however. Did they remember the young man who received recognition from President Trump at his State of the Union Address? He was from North Korea. He had a sad story of mistreatment in North Korea. He escaped with most of his family from North Korea. His father, sadly, was captured trying to escape and dying under torture.

Anyone recall the American that was sentenced to years in their horrible work camp prisons? By the time President Trump got into office and made efforts to bring him home, North Korea delivered a broken body and mind to his family evidencing the senseless torture and mistreatment the young man received from North Korea.

Yet, the media is more interested in the surface view presented to the world by North Korea rather than it’s history of truth.
