Korea Wants Foreign Media to Lie

I think the Golden Rule should be applied here. If you want the foreign media to play nice, then it's time the Korean media to stop cruxifing foreigners every chance it gets.

``Korea has fared well compared to other economies despite a plunge in global demand,'' Han told a weekly Cabinet meeting. ``Korea's current account recorded a surplus of $330 million in February, an optimistic sign that the economy is doing quite well amid a worldwide recession. However, such positive aspects are often ignored in media reports,'' he said.
Breen puts it best.
``If the government considers reporting on Korea to be misleading, it should improve its communications rather than criticize the media.''
Do unto to others, Korean media...
