After a disturbing amount of media outlets spent much of the weekend swooning for North Korea’s master of propaganda Kim Yo-jong, The Hill’s media reporter Joe Concha appeared on Fox News Channel’s Happening Now and slammed them for helping to put a positive spin on the murderous regime.
“With critics slamming many members of the media for fawning over the sister of North Korea's ruler. The mysterious young woman hijacking all of the attention at the winter games. Some outlets calling her the Ivanka Trump of North Korea,” Fox News co-host Jon Scott announced as he was leading into the segment and the ridiculous headlines flashed on the screen.
First up was Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Judy Miller. She wasn’t surprised by the media’s coverage but didn’t really have a problem with it. “No, I'm not surprised. I mean, it’s kind of predictable. She is the shiny new object in the atmosphere. But let me tell you if you just go beyond those headlines, you get some fantastic reporting about what a monstrous regime…,” she claimed.
