[The Chosun Ilbo, August 7 2008] The KBS President, Then and Now

KBS president Jung Yun-joo held a press conference on Wednesday and claimed the results of a probe by the Board of Audit and Inspection were “full of lies and distortions,” adding he would file a lawsuit today to nullify a recommendation by the BAI to fire him. In a statement to the public, Jung criticized the BAI and called on the board of the state-run broadcaster not to become “criminals” in the eyes of history by supporting the recommendation to fire him. This is the type of behavior we have grown accustomed to from Jung, who has refused to obey five summons from prosecutors and four from the BAI.
