[The Hankyoreh, July 11 2007] Recent political controversy raises doubts on the media

Media watchdog says the media is losing its ability to monitor those in power

In connection with recently raised allegations over the past misconduct of the leading presidential hopefuls from the main opposition Grand National Party (GNP), the reports of a few conservative media outlets have been found to focus mostly on where the allegations came from, rather than on finding the facts beneath the allegations.

Many observers note that these kinds of reports are typical of reports that water down the importance of each candidate’s ethics while diverting the public’s attention away from the main issues.
