[The Chosun Ilbo, June 7 2007] Roh Supporters Hail Impending War on Press

A supporters club for President Roh Moo-hyun believes that the government is determined to wage war on the media. The group, named the Government Evaluation Forum, in a recently published document says the government’s efforts to depoliticize the media and the media’s resistance would be “as intense as a war.” The forum said the politicized media was “the sole remaining privileged group in Korean society” and added the government will stint no effort to straighten out the media.
