Olympics Media Buying the Propaganda? Some of the national coverage of this year’s Olympics has been raising some eyebrows. In particular, a CNN article posted over the weekend, titled “Kim Jong Un’s Sister is Stealing the Show at the Winter Olympics”, is being ridiculed for the glowing way it described the North Korean dictator’s sister.
