Washington Post: Reporters Thought White House Video Was North Korean Propaganda

Please watch the video below with the sound on mute. Did any of you actually think it was North Korean propaganda? Probably none of you did. And of course any person being completely truthful would also have the same opinion whether they also watched it on mute or in any other language including Korean. One dead giveaway is the satellite image of North Korea at night with almost no lights contrasted seconds later with a possible future North Korea covered in bright lights.

Despite this, Washington Post reporter Avi Selk went through the pretense on Tuesday that some reporters, upon first viewing the video in Korean, somehow thought it was North Korean propanda. And what are the chances that those same reporters are hostile to President Donald Trump? How about a 100% chance? They very well knew it wasn't North Korean propaganda but by pretending that was their impression it gave them a disingenuous outlet for their hostility.

 

 

And now Selk actually wants up to believe that “Reporters thought this video was North Korea propaganda. It came from the White House”:

Reporters crowded into a Singapore auditorium Tuesday, expecting President Trump to walk out and announce the results of his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Suddenly, two huge screens on either side of the empty podium came to life. Soaring music boomed over the speakers, and the reporters were bombarded with a montage portraying North Korea as some sort of paradise.

Golden sunrises. Gleaming skylines and high-speed trains. Children skipping through Kim Il Sung square in Pyongyang, North Korean flags waving between images of Egyptian pyramids, the Taj Mahal and the Lincoln Memorial.

In a split-screen shot, Kim Jong Un waved to an adoring crowd while President Trump stood beside him with his thumb in the air. The pair appeared over and over again, like running mates in a campaign video.

The film went on like this for several minutes, with brief interludes of missiles, soldiers and warships interrupting the fanfare. Some journalists, unable to understand the Korean-language narration, assumed they were watching one of Pyongyang's infamous propaganda films. “What country are we in?” asked a reporter from the filing center.

You are in a liberal bubble country that can't accept this incredible diplomatic achievement by Trump so you have to go through the silly pretense that you actually thought the video you saw could have been North Korean propaganda even though it very obviously was not.
