North Korea's KCNA, Russian TASS news agency hope to fight 'fake news'

Source: BBC



A cooperation agreement between Russia's TASS news agency and the North Korean state news agency KCNA was signed in Pyongyang on 8 October, TASS has reported.

The Russian agency was represented by its Director-General Sergei Mikhailov, who met his opposite number Kim Chan-gwang to discuss the exchange of material and "assistance for journalists".

Speaking at the meeting, Mr Kim said that fighting disinformation was one of the key aspects of cooperation between the two government-owned agencies. "We increasingly often see misrepresentation of information in the news environment, and we must counter the dissemination of such fake news. I believe that KCNA and TASS news agencies must join efforts towards this goal," TASS reported him as saying.

The specifics of what this means was not reported.

1. Why aren't the news programs looking at the terrifying big picture

Itís like World War II. The western countries are more and more isolationist while the Russians are like the Germans. Putin has formed strong alliances with Turkey, North Korea which is getting more and more long range nuclear weapons, and China.
We may be the most powerful single country but how do we stand up to Russiaís coalition?

Why are the Republicans betraying us by supporting Trumpís betrayal?

2. The truth is that REICH-WING groups in the west have aligned themselves with

Russia and their axis. I'm not sure what the motivation behind all this is but I know it's not good for those of us who value democracy.

3. Putin has just about re-created the Soviet Union...

.... just without all the Communist window-dressing.

He will pick off Ukraine first.... others will follow.
