[The Hankyoreh, August 16 2008] Cheong Wa Dae’s IP address linked to critical comment left on media union Web site

Statement that prompted the comment urged union members to attend hearing on Broadcast Law

The IP address of a critical comment attached to a posted statement on the homepage of the National Union of Media Workers has turned out to be from a computer located in the Cheong Wa Dae.

The union, ahead of a public hearing on revisions to the executive ordinance of the Broadcast Law, posted on its homepage August 14 a statement entitled, “Broadcast Communication Committee Members, Appear and Debate at the Hearing.”

An Internet user that uses the identity “Jungangin” criticized the statement in a comment left at 5:04 p.m. on August 14 in which he said there was no need for the committee members to attend the hearing since the deliberation process was taking place transparently. He said the union, which was hiding behind the mask of being media while thinking only of their rice bowls, should remove their masks and get jobs.
