MBC Media Persons Boycott Program Production
Pyongyang, January 29 (KCNA) -- Media persons of MBC of south Korea launched an action to totally boycott the program production on Jan. 25 in protest against the puppet authorities' crackdown on media.

Reporters and announcers of the MBC council of journalists and council of video producers accused the present chief executive of appointing his confidants to important posts of the company, thus making MBC lose creditability of the audience and reducing it to the most unfair one.

They chided the MBC management for underreporting stories laying bare the corruption of the ruling quarters such as purchase of sites for houses in Naegok-dong and mentioning no word about actions for getting the registration fee halved and opposing the south Korea-U.S. FTA.

They condemned the head of the report headquarters and the director of the report department, in particular, for trying to punish those who tell truth while going busy with releasing misinformation.

We have turned out in our action, unable to overlook the present situation any longer, they said, adding they would fight on till their demands for the resignation of the above-said guys and others are met.
