The Korean Association of Newspapers in a statement on Sunday denounced the Government Information Agency's shut-down of all but a handful of briefing rooms at government agencies and restrictions on reporters' access to government officials. Titled "Don't infringe on the people's right to know," the statement urges the GIA to withdraw its attempt to block free news coverage.
