I've written many times for the Chosun Ilbo, Kyunghyang Shinmun, Newsweek Korea and other mainstream Korean media outlets. They actually seem to think that CNN, NYT, WaPo, The Economist and all the rest are reliable media outlets, and largely form their view of what's happening in the US and the West based on whatever false narratives of the day they happen to be peddling. In other words, they basically don't have a clue, and are doing a great disservice to their readers as a consequence. For example, back in October a local taxi driver actually told me: "I like Clinton because she's the 'peace' candidate and Trump is a warmonger." WTF? Even now I am getting emails from Korean friends telling me that they feel Trump is "almost like Hitler." At least the American MSM knowingly lie, but the Korean media are arguably even worse because it often seems like they unknowingly lie. Sad!
