The media literally does nothing but nonstop hoaxes. They said Kim Jong-Un was probably dead because he took a vacation.
Turns out, he was just on vacation.
Once again we see that the North Korean state media is more accurate than America’s Israeli state media.
North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, resurfaced in public view on Friday, the North’s state news media reported Saturday, controverting three weeks of rumors and unconfirmed news reports that he was in grave danger after undergoing heart surgery.
He appeared at a ceremony at a factory in the city of Sunchon, the North’s state news agency said, later releasing photos from the event. The report could not immediately be independently confirmed.
Mr. Kim, 36, had last appeared publicly on April 11. Speculation about his health — and about who would take over the hermetic, nuclear-armed country should he become incapacitated or die — began swirling after Mr. Kim missed the state celebrations of his country’s biggest holiday on April 15. On that day, the North marks the birthday of his grandfather Kim Il-sung, the country’s founder.
Rumors subsequently went into overdrive, claiming that Mr. Kim was “in grave danger,” in a “vegetative state” after botched heart-valve surgery, or in quarantine after contracting Covid-19. Other reports said that China had sent doctors to Pyongyang to save him.
After its initial report on Saturday, the North Korean news agency released photos showing a smiling Mr. Kim applauding, cutting a ribbon and standing with his hands behind his back at a new fertilizer factory.
“All the participants again burst into thunderous cheers of ‘hurrah,’” the news agency said, taking its characteristically fulsome tone for coverage of the leader. It said that Mr. Kim “warmly acknowledged the builders and masses raising thunderous cheers” and went on to tour the factory, accompanied by senior officials from the ruling Workers’ Party, including his only sister, Kim Yo-jong.
Similar to the “fulsome tone” you NYT Jews use in coverage of Joe Biden, no?
Maybe it’s actually absurd for the New York Times of all papers to be denouncing any other media as pushing propaganda?
I’m glad to hear Kim is alive, and I wish we would have gotten more reports from the DPRK’s state media, as they presumably would have accurately informed us that nothing was wrong.
I was actually a bit worried about this, given that I have gathered that the US is going to attempt to start a war with China sometime in the next few months here, and the peninsula would be the obvious place to kick off such a thing as that.
Kim will always have my respect for his taste in horses.
