Sea of propaganda on bunny slope in NK

Lester Holt in NKA media watchdog says NBC News got duped by the "death cult" of North Korea most likely in a sloppy attempt to criticize President Trump. 

Veteran newscaster Lester Holt travelled to North Korea just weeks before NBC's coverage of the Winter Olympics in South Korea, reporting from its oppressive northern neighbor that he was treated with "respect" by the communist regime.

Holt has since been criticized by many, and mocked by others, for his live report from a "bunny slope" as smiling North Koreans lined up behind him.

Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center says he is not surprised at the negative feedback Holt and NBC have received since the broadcast.

"Why are the press basically advocating for this?" Gainor asks. "Well, I guess to some extent because they don't want Trump to look good. So if they make North Korea look good, they think Trump looks bad."

The result of that biased view, he says, is an "insane death cult run by lunatics" can manipulate a Trump-hating news crew for its propaganda purposes.

Holt defended his visit in an Associated Press story that describes how he didn't request the trip to the ski resort; how the camera crew was forced to delete footage of impoverished conditions; and how he knew he was being closely watched.
