BBC News: Is North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un rational?

Is North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un rational? –

I do find these types of articles quite amusing to read while I’m enjoying a nice weekend lunch.  

This one though.. from the BBC .. One if the most unreliable news agencies around. .. is super amusing to me today because it’s a really good example of how new or media in general has its own a agenda when it comes to shaping and manipulating the readers thoughts.  

Here we see the reporter try to manipulate the readers opinion of Kim to match the implied  headline of be irrational by saying he’s had several of his loyal generals killed… The key manipulative word here being “loyal”.. The reporter is telling you they we loyal, hence making you think he is irrational. Maybe he is or isn’t .. we don’t actually know.. we can’t know because we don’t know what’s going on in the background of that family and political construct. 

So .. what can we do about it? … nothing I guess as the only information we have is what’s fed to us through the refining process of media manipulation. 

Now it’s also quote possible the media its self is also being manipulated by political powers … In fact I’d not be surprised .. 

Oh this could just go on and on.. and frankly I’m hungry..

So I’m going to eat 🙂

Have a great Sunday everyone
