[The Chosun Ilbo, August 31 2007] Resolution Adopted at an Emergency Meeting of Managing and Chief News Editors

The following is the resolution adopted in an emergency meeting of managing and chief news editors on Thursday regarding the government’s new press controls.

Reporters on their beats are crying out every day to point out and resist the injustice of the government's anti-democratic anti-press measures.

We, the chief editors of media companies nationwide in charge of covering, editing and reporting news stories, have called this meeting because we decided we could no longer tolerate the government's unilateral implementation of anti-press measures and the consequent unnatural standoff between the government and reporters in the press rooms.
