Mainstream Media Falls Madly, Deeply in Love with North Korea’s Propaganda Minister


The 2018 Winter Olympics has sparked a not-so-subtle media love affair with the sister of ruthless dictator Kim Jong Un.

Kim Yo Jong is the sister of the North Korean Supreme Leader and is the director of the Workers Party of Korea’s Propaganda and Agitation Department. She has become a media darling at the PyeongChang Winter Games charming the likes of CNN “With a smile, a handshake and a warm message…”

ABC relished in how “North Korea’s throng of more than 200 cheerleaders are stealing the spotlight at the 23rd Winter Olympic Games in South Korea as they chant, sway and dance in unison.”

The Wall Street Journal said of the dictator’s subjects, “the cheer squad’s presence was impossible for the skaters to ignore,” also mentioning “the North Korean cheerleaders were unavailable for comment,” neglecting to note this is due to citizens of North Korea being forbidden to speak with journalists under penalty of forced labor or public execution.

Kim Yo Jong was permitted by her brother to say, “I hope Pyongyang and Seoul get closer in our people’s hearts and move forward the future of prosperous unification.”

CNN went on to report Yo Jong is, “Seen by some as her brother’s answer to American first daughter Ivanka Trump, Kim, 30, is not only a powerful member of Kim Jong Un’s kitchen cabinet but also a foil to the perception of North Korea as antiquated and militaristic,” as the media outlet appeared to open their minds to a North Korean “rebranding” with the head of the Propaganda and Agitation Department.

The press praised Kim Yo Jong for her diplomacy in attending the games in South Korea, as well as shaking hands “warmly” with the president of South Korea. She is the first member of the North Korean Marxist family dynasty allowed to visit South Korea since the unofficial end to the Korean war in 1953. Yo Jung is known to work closely with her brother as an advance-team leader as well as administrative duties.

On the brink of possible nuclear war, Vice President Mike Pence did not acknowledge the North Korea dictator’s sister and decidedly did not applaud North Korea’s athletes. In a rocky diplomatic situation, Pence’s behavior was framed as a “snub” and lamented by the Washington Post and CNN.

The home country of the media’s new favorite diplomat has some 6 million people starving or malnourished. Under her brother’s leadership there is no Internet and electricity only runs in certain areas a few hours a day.

The North Korean regime instructs its citizens that they have a divine right to rule and the lineage is patriarchal. Kim Jung Un had his brother murdered in 2017.

Following Marxist dogma, Yo Jong’s family regime doesn’t allow religious worship, nor does it allow personal property. Famine in areas is so bad, some have resorted to cannibalism. 

As journalists continue to be wowed by the rare glimpses of top North Korean brass, and thrilled by cheerleaders clad in red, a darker story lurks in the shadows:

“They’re all hostages,” said author of Dear Reader Michael Malice about the North Korean people. “If someone puts a gun to your mom’s head, you’re going march,” he explained. “…these are human beings who are in prison. And of course they’re going to do crazy, silly things, wouldn’t you?”

    Somehow, when North Korea talks about unification, I don’t think they have in mind that Dear Leader will abandon his position of absolute power so that the people can adopt democratic institutions based on freedom, like what they have in South Korea.

    But I like how the dorks are on record of fawning over the Norks.
