Gee, no fudge, Elmer!
The newspaper is called Chosun Ilbo, a far -right newspaper which has a long history of talking fudge and creating false stories about NK.
Its source? One, single, unnamed, unidentified person.
Any corroboration of such a big story, given this senior, high ranking guy sat opposite trump at the WH last year?
Nah, what for...fits our narrative ?!!
So the word of one anonymous person became the Truth and media ran with this fake news....
Any mea culpa's or official retractions from the media 4 days later when said dude popped up a few seats from Kim at a musical concert??
CNN, NYT, AP and Reuters ran new stories that made light of the now old news, but not one official retraction, something that is the norm.
In the four days it took to "correct" the story, literally millions of people around the world were sold this story via tv, social media etc.
I wonder how many heard it turned out it was all a lie?
And given how many times its happened, you'd think these newspapers would learn that verifying these stories before publishing them would be the professional thing to do, even as more simple-minded folk on here see no issue...
Deceiving the public to reinforce how bad Kim is? And having the public see nothing wrong( ...ala the moron above? )
War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.
