Fairness Doctrine, Korean Version

5 Jan

Seoul doesn’t need a “pro-American” president, because it uncannily marches in lockstep with its nemesis on the high-profile issues, like dredging up the Fairness Doctrine. Case-in-point: netizen whining about an “evil” broadcasting bill.

Conglomerates are already taking over all sectors, hospitals, electronics, communications, manufacture, automobiles, ships, chemistry, textile, distribution, and so on. If they control broadcasting, we will live as slaves of those companies. As we know, conglomerates have cozy relations with politicians. If they take over broadcasting, who will talk about them? Broadcasting has the duty to report the truth to us. However, they will talk following the tastes of those companies and will walk for the government. If there are groups that don’t follow their rules, they will destroy them.

True Translation: “Spineless netizens, shriek for the dying of our monopoly on worthless opinions!

Brendan Carr sees clearly.

It’s a silly debate, anyway, about the newspapers being able to purchase and control broadcast media. Both newsprint and broadcast are dead in America, and I can’t imagine that Korea will somehow be immune from the tectonic shift taking place elsewhere. The newspapers see a move into broadcasting as a survival gambit, but it’s the shortest of short-term plays — like the Lusitania sailing to the rescue of the Titanic.

Please, be my guest, chaebol owners, destroy yourselves!
