North Korea: Lies and the Liars Who Tell Them

Remember this from a few days ago? 

Three days later, the truth came out—Kim Yong Col wasn’t executed. In fact, he was spotted with his supposed executioner, Kim Jong-un, at an arts performance. 

Oops.

This yet another example of corporate fake news media’s willingness to buy into lies if it serves to demonize official enemies.

Saddam’s WMDs, al-Bashir’s chemical attacks, and dozens of other lies drive consensus for war, murder, and destruction. 

This is only possible because so many Americans—most little more than headline skimmers—are not interested in paying attention unless it concerns Game of Thrones.

This makes sense. Both are fantasy.

  1. This is quite true, sorry to say. We are a nation of sheep. Part of the blame falls on the schools and the teacher unions. These indoctrinate the young, and work to frustrate the development of critical thinking skills in the pupils.

  2. Game of Thrones is probably left out of my knowledge.
    Harry Potter books are more common than bibles.
