False Reports of S. Korean Media on Ferry Sewol Sinking Disaster Censured
Pyongyang, May 19 (KCNA) -- South Korean KBS on May 16 disclosed that media made reports patronizing the puppet regime which had not taken proper measures as regards the ferry Sewol sinking disaster.

It said that the sinking disaster cast a lot of doubts on south Korean media during the past one month.

It went on:

The media did not raise the point at issue in the initial reaction, making false reports. The same can be said of KBS.

Media were engrossed only in coverage, indifferent to the pain of the bereaved families. From the early period when the accident occurred, they reported about the regime's announcement that "it set in motion 500 persons and all equipment".

KBS, a public broadcasting service in charge of report on disasters, was sharply censured.

The issue of rescue operations was not heard from KBS when the "president" visited Jin Island. It reported about the "president's" tour but did not deal with a press conference of bereaved families.

One should think whether media's reports about the ferry Sewol sinking disaster were another disaster or not.
