North Korean Media Goes Rogue – the Truth is Out!

By

Boy, oh boy, was this week filled with unprecedented events.

Most were probably too busy with the actual Trump-Kim summit to realize that there were some unusual happenings in North Korea itself.

For instance, while North Korean media didn’t pay much attention at all the to Trump meeting, it did extensively cover Kim Jong-Un’s visit to Singapore.

And that’s kind of strange.

You see, the North Korean regime typically tightly controls all presentations of foreign countries and cities so as to maintain the illusion (lie) that North Koreans live in the world’s premier paradise.

They wouldn’t want folks realizing that people in other countries have it WAY better.

So it was pretty shocking for North Korea’s state-controlled media to be showing photos and video clips of Kim strolling through Singapore, which is WAY more prosperous than anywhere in North Korea.

They even quoted Kim calling Singapore “clean and beautiful,” and admitting that his country has a lot to learn from the affluent southeast Asian city-state.

Are we witnessing the beginning of the end of one of the world’s most repressive regimes?

Sure seems that way.
