Nobody falls for this sort of obvious propaganda unless he wants to fall for it. And why do they want to fall for it? So they can score partisan points in domestic politics, portraying Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to the Olympics as “a new low in a bullying type of American diplomacy,” according to a professor quoted prominently by the New York Times. Pence is the one who is “bullying”—while North Korea continually threatens the entire South with annihilation? The double standard is too obvious to be an accident. North Korea’s monsters are getting a free pass from the America press just so they can stick a finger in the eye of the Trump administration.

So the message the media is sending us here is that they will cheer on the gulags if it serves their partisan agenda. Then they wonder why we don’t trust them.
