[The Chosun Ilbo, August 23 2007] Lies and Media Control

In July of 2005, the Ministry of Government Administration and Home Affairs announced that only 28.7 percent of Koreans owned their own land. The reason why the ministry made that announcement was to underscore the inequality in land ownership in Korea, where 71.3 percent of the public does not own even a small plot of land. And according to this script, a government-run website publicizing the Roh Moo-hyun administration’s achievements wrote that many Koreans were feeling despondent and painfully felt the wide gap between the rich and the poor.
