Embarrassment for NBC News after Lester Holt apparently falls for North Korean propaganda
More or Lester, Lester got bamboozled by The Kid Dick-tator.
Les was on assignment in North Korea and visited a ski resort (usually called the last resort by many). To make the resort look like a thriving venue where the North Korean let their short hair down, using all smoke and mirrors, The Kid loaded up the usually deserted resort with 100’s of skiers, all for a front. More or Lester, Les feel hook line and sinker for the propaganda. The kid got a good laugh out of his trickery.
The only thing the picture does not show is the egg on Les’s face.
NBC News is reeling after “Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt appears to have been badly fooled by North Korean propagandists — giving a cheery report from a ski resort in the Hermit Kingdom that looked to be bustling when it was widely known to actually be a ghost town.
I hope for his sake, Les learned a good lesson in life; All the glitters is not gold; especially in North Korea.
North Korea calls for unification of Korean Peninsula
North Korea on Thursday called for “all Koreans at home and abroad” to take steps toward unification without the help of any other countries.
The message urged all Koreans to “promote contact, travel, cooperation between North and South Korea,” while assuring that Pyongyang would get over any hurdles in its way toward reunifying the peninsula, Reuters reported, citing North Korean state media.
Anyone that believes this snake oil pitch, remember I still have some very exquisite swamp land lots I would like to sell at bargain basement prices.
Whatever The Kid says or does should be taken with a grain of salt or cyanide. I would not trust him as far as I can throw him. At 5′ 7″, the Kid tips the scale @ 286 lbs.
Too much Samgyeopsal (삼겹살) can put the lad in an early grave.
North Korea planning military event on eve of Winter Olympics
To commemorate the winter Olympics, The Kid plans to display a show of his country’s power and strength by putting on a military operation. I always say; keep your eye on the hog and finger on the trigger.
With someone as unstable as The Kid, there is no telling what he has up his sleeve.
