Rodong Sinmun Editorially Observes Anniversary of Kim Jong Il's Work
Pyongyang, May 7 (KCNA) -- Leader Kim Jong Il proclaimed the modeling of the whole society on Kimilsungism as the supreme programme of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and published the famous work "Our Party's Media Is a Powerful Ideological Weapon Which Contributes to Modeling the Whole Society on Kimilsungism" on May 7 40 years ago, clarifying mission, fundamental principle and basic duty of the media based on Kimilsungism.

Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in an editorial says that the WPK's media has radically changed its appearance and successfully performed its mission and duty at every stage of the revolution under the leadership of Kim Jong Il.

It is the great honor of our party's media that the revolutionary character of the Juche-oriented media has been firmly preserved and glorified for the last several decades under the leadership of Kim Jong Il and it is the highest pride of our party's media that it has dynamically accelerated the development of the era and the revolution and the building of a rich and powerful country through the intensified ideological campaign, the editorial notes, and goes on:

Our party's media is the Juche-type one founded by President Kim Il Sung.

Kim Jong Il kindled the torch of bringing about a radical turn in writing editorials of Rodong Sinmun, the party's paper, in the 1970s and energetically led the work to make sure that a revolution was made in the overall activities of the media.

Thanks to the leadership of Kim Jong Il, our media could take on appearance as the Juche-type media remaining true to the cause of the President with loyalty with a writing brush and microphone for defending the leader against the backdrop of the historic advance for modeling the whole party and society on Kimilsungism.

All the journalists and other media persons emerged admirable eternal companions of the party under the loving care of Kim Jong Il.

All the party's media should become standard bearers and buglers who imbue all members of the society with Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism.

The editorial calls upon all the journalists and other media persons in the DPRK to put strong spurs to the work for modeling the whole society on Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism and bring earlier the final victory of the Juche revolution under the guidance of supreme leader Kim Jong Un.
