[The Chosun Ilbo, July 30 2008] Prosecutors Find 'PD Diary' Guilty

Prosecutors announced the interim results of their investigation into MBC’s "PD Diary" on Tuesday and said its report on mad cow disease deliberately distorted and exaggerated the threat of contracting the human form of bovine spongiform encephalopathy from U.S. beef in 17 different parts of the program. After investigating the program’s translators, expert sources who were interviewed, as well U.S. data it cited, the judicial organ of the government has officially acknowledged that almost all of the information regarding mad cow disease in the "PD Diary" report were flawed.
