RFA: N. Korea's Media Coverage of Rallies in S. Korea May Backfire

Radio Free Asia(RFA) says that North Korea’s active media coverage of massive antigovernment rallies in South Korea may backfire and expose North Korean residents to free democracy.

Rudiger Frank, a professor at the University of Vienna, told the Washington-based international broadcaster that the North’s reporting of the candlelight rallies in South Korea calling for the resignation of the embattled president can be a “bad example” for the North Korean leadership.

Frank said that as the anti-Park Geun-hye rallies show how people can express their discontent over a leader who fails them, it would be cautious for the North Korean authorities to report details of the situation. 

The Voice of America(VOA) recently quoted North Korean defectors in the U.S. as saying that the media report on the rallies could provide North Korean residents with an opportunity to realize that South Korea is a free democracy.
