CNN rebranding to KNN?

I don't think anyone needs more proof that CNN is utter garbage, but they outdid themselves with this puff piece on Kim Yo Jong, in which they praise the north korean dictator's sister and her presence at the Olympic Winter Games. Obviously, the link is archived, I will not support the likes of CNN, even if I'm weighing in late on this. So let's go through this cancerous propaganda, shall we?

If "diplomatic dance" were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un's younger sister would be favored to win gold.
With a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea's presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games.

That's how this garbage starts. She "struck a chord" with the public, has she? Oh really? I can see that in this article. Or maybe this one. Or even this one. Or how about this one? But hey, what do I know? And I'm sure all those koreans are just russian bots or something.

Seen by some as her brother's answer to American first daughter Ivanka Trump, Kim, 30, is not only a powerful member of Kim Jong Un's kitchen cabinet but also a foil to the perception of North Korea as antiquated and militaristic. In Pyeongchang, her presence is a major story line for reporters and the buzz on the street, with some in South Korea curious and accepting, while others are skeptical, if not downright cynical.

So you're equating the minister of propaganda and agitation of a totalitarian, communist regime, with the daughter of an elected president, who has no power over policy. Right... exactly the same. And North Korea isn't just perceived as antiquated and militaristic; it is militaristic. Or need I remind you of the countless nuclear threats addressed to the US, Australia and South Korea, or maybe the rockets launched over Japan?

This "article" then goes on about how she met with the South Korean leader, had dinner and watched a hockey game. That means that she's no different than the free people of the west, right... right? Later, it talks about what is known of her family and how she rose to prominence, now becoming a Politburo member and "one of the few people he [Kim Jong Un] can trust". I wonder why that dictator cannot trust people? Could it be because he killed his uncle? Or maybe that he ordered his brother to be killed? I wonder what this says about his closest aids. It couldn't possibly mean they're his best enforcers, or if I'm generous, his most brainwashed slaves?

Kim Yo Jong's profile has been steadily rising since 2014, when she was made deputy director of the Propaganda and Agitation Department of the Workers' Party.

Hmm, so CNN, a free press outlet who constantly lambasts Trump because he dares to call them fake news, is now praising a literal propagandist for one of the, if not the, most oppressive regimes on the planet. Time to write a puff piece on Goebbels then, too. Gotta be inclusive and offer that, all so coveted representation, no?

Experts say her visit for the Winter Games is calculated to answer the expected presence of Ivanka Trump at the closing ceremonies.
"Kim Yo Jong is the perfect counterpart to this," Hwang said. "And it also is a signal that North Korea is not this crazy, weird former Cold War state -- but it too has young women that are capable and are the future leadership."

Aaah, yes. Good 'ol feminism prasing the hijab as a form of liberation, propping up a murderer as their representative, and now praising a communist propagandist. And then feminists wonder why sane people say #FeminismIsCancer.

But, for once, I have to give props to Buzzfeed News, not a thing I thought I'd do any time soon. This is because they released this article, to bring some sanity in the mainstream media. And it's from a direction I never thought I'd see, and I highly recommend you read it.

I know that this is not exactly new information, but I had to rant on this garbage. What are your thought on it, though? Share below, along with any feedback you might have. It is greatly appreciated!


Thank you for reading, and keep on steemin'!

Sort:  

cut a liberal a fascist bleeds.

The problems inherent to capitalism must be blamed on something else to keep the stupid neo-liberal views of negative liberty alive. That's how fascism takes power, trump is just another disgusting liberal. Then they call the not-as-right-wing neo-liberals communists because their fascist mind can't even begin to bother trying to define it.

It's funny how feminism has made it's way into a Communist regime.... or maybe vice versa. You see the support team at the Winter Olympics consist entirely of women all choreographed to perform a perfect cheerleading exercise.

On a small note, get a proof read Sebi, or re-read your articles. I know English isn't your first language, but presentation is all ;)

women could vote in the ussr before the usa, its almost like communism stands for freedom.

Women and men couldn't speak their mind, starved and were sent to gulags in the USSR. It's almost like communism stands for fuck all.

the ussr was more democratic than the ussa, and many communists do not support the state socialist model.

It turns out capitalism stands for complete ignorance of history.

Yeah, so democratic! Please tell me more how everything was run when I fucking live. I'm sure you know better. But I'm sure that's not real communism. The infinite strawman

Funnily enough it's not just USSR, recently this video has been created depicting how democracy works in Cuba; also all sources are in the description if you are a skeptic.

Mhm, even North Korea is supposedly democratic. They even hold a vote and all. Peak democracy, right there!

"Yeah, so democratic! Please tell me more how everything was run when I fucking live"

grammar? I have no idea what you are trying to say.

Keep dodging, cunt!

alright well, you are alive right now I assume. So everything was run through democracy.

but I assume that's not what you were asking, too bad I can't answer whatever the fuck your question was supposed to be

Communism is democracy? Have I ever heard anything so ridiculous? LMAO

the basis of communism is worker ownership of the means of production, do you think people would support communism if the goal was tyranny?

Nice third grade "communism is evil" education you got there

I don't think communism really gives a shit about feminism, but feminism is a form of communism. And I don't mind them being at the Olympics, but they're there for a political statement. Praise their athletes, but not that political statement, which is obvious propaganda. But I guess CNN agrees with their message... I dunno why that is surprising to me, though.

Also, I tried editing what mistakes I found. Better, honey? :p

communism is worker control of the means of production, so anybody who wants social equality of any kind, as opposed to tyranny, better be a communist.

Anybody that stands for social equality is a communist, and inherently a tyrant. People are not equal. For example, you're a retard, not at all equal to the likes of Sam Harris. But you want the same? Fuck no!

try defining communism lmao. I want to see how bad you fail

economic equality leads to social equality.

Most social inequality is born out of the need to justify economic inequality when all else fails.

Oh no... muh inequality!
I don't give a shit. People are not equal. You are completely irrelevant, Sam Harris is not.

I never said the people should be equal, just that random chance shouldn't decide whether you starve to death or never have to do anything with your life

It's not random chance, it's skill in different fields. If you don't produce anything of value or provide no service, you starve. If one is totally worthless to everyone else, why should I, or anybody else for that matter, care for this person?

Communism doesn't try to inherently cater towards the genetic differences between the people, but rather their socio economic backgrounds; the main goal of communism is often to remove socio economic diffirences where everyone is on an equal playing field.

I have some stuff and studies to even to show that socio economic backgrounds matter more then genetics.

Hope you stay open minded, and make decisions after you read these studies. Thank you for your time.

I am open minded. I'm fine with some help. But I've seen communism... and I don't care what sort of "difference" it tries to eradicate, all it does in the end is make everyone equally down trodden. Socio-economic differences are a symptom of genetic difference. One gains status by providing products / services. One comes up with these products / services if they're smart / able / skilled enough to do so. And they should not be equal to anybody else.

Unfortunately your open mindness gave you super powers to read and look through all 6 educational sources I've sent you all at the same time, it's quite amazing I wish I could document this; but unfortunately we do not live in a fairy tail world.

Socio-economic difference is a sympton of genetic difference, but it doesn't justify to luck of someone being born and getting the right to use the wealth of someone in a higher class. As you may have seen in my sources, poor students who do everything right still do worse then in life then rich ones who do everything wrong.

Wtf does "right" and "wrong" mean? And yes, someone born in riches deserves to be there. That's the whole point their parents worked for, to give their lineage a better chance in life. Nobody is entitled to any of those riches but the owner. What the kids do with them, is entirely their business. And if they do "everything wrong", they squander those riches, and in fact they often do, as most wealth is lost by the 3rd generation. Do well and work hard, and you're good, lazy around, you starve. Such is, and should be life.

Why changing name

They're not, read the post. I'm just shitting on them for being communist propaganda

ironically enough, you can't even research your "insults" before you use them.
