[The Chosun Ilbo, July 30 2008] MBC Manipulated Mad Cow Disease Report: Prosecutors

Prosecutors have concluded that most parts of a two-part report by MBC current affairs program "PD Diary" on the dangers of U.S. beef distorted facts gathered by MBC's own reporters or deliberately edited information to exaggerate the risks of mad cow disease.

The Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office on Tuesday released an interim report on its investigation into the program, saying MBC producers deliberately distorted 19 conspicuous parts of the report. The prosecutors' office requested MBC once again to turn in the materials to clarify those issues.
