[The Chosun Ilbo, July 18 2008] MBC Digs In Over Order to Apologize for 'PD Diary'

MBC seems reluctant to comply fully with an order by the Korea Communications Standards Commission to apologize to viewers for distortions in the current affairs program “PD Diary” that stoked public fears about American beef imports. MBC in a statement on Thursday night’s “News Desk” said it “humbly accepts the decision by the KOCSC that we made mistranslations and other mistakes” in the two-part program “and that we did not immediately correct them.” But it added, “We regret that these mistakes misled people into thinking that the entire programs were biased and the controversy surrounding the programs is being spread in malicious reports in some newspapers.”
