In the short amount of time this editor has been writing this morning, this is the THIRD ‘hot take’ from our timeline where we’ve seen ‘traditional media’ say something exceptionally and extraordinarily stupid about North Korea.
Seriously, media, do you and North Korea need to be alone for a bit?
Look at this garbage from Reuters:

Judged by whom? Diplomatic gold?!
THEY MURDER INNOCENT PEOPLE IF THEIR SHIRTS ARE UNTUCKED.
Ok, so maybe not … or maybe so.
All we know is that giving North Korea the gold in diplomacy is sorta like giving John Wayne Gacy an award for colorful costumes.

Wonder how upset NBC is that Reuters took the gold here?
Because Jong Un let his little sister go out or because he didn't have her threaten to kill someone? Get a room already 🙄

Any one of these three make a wrong move, stumble, spill a drop of their tea on camera, embarrass little Rocket man in any way, and they'll be underground when they go home. Count on it. Slaves tend to try to stay alive.

You need to fire the person who wrote this article, and probably the person who tweeted it out as well.

Super diplomatic and stuff.
Holy hell!!! You guys too? Do you realize what is going on inside NK? And you are so simple as to be impressed because Kim Jong-Un isn't covered in the blood of North Koreans….#FFS

Sidenote, we love this. Bethany S. Mandel is using the media’s ridiculousness to help raise money for North Korean refugees … take a look!
