[The Hankyoreh, June 14 2008] Stand up act

In the candlelight protests over the past month, citizen reporters have played a major role with individual broadcasters posting live coverage of the demonstrations on the Internet.

But now, we can see a different kind of broadcaster, President Lee Myung-bak.

“Whaddya think? I’m a one-man broadcaster,” the president says, now that he’s running three broadcast networks: YTN, MBC and KBS.

It was reported that Lee has decided to appoint his close aide, Ku Bong-hong, to head YTN. He has also been involved in pressuring the KBS chief to resign.
