S. Korean prosecutors coquet with French media's chastity.
In South Korea, the prosecution has a bad custom of agitating for a criminal suspect to be witch hunted by the public through sway public opinion before the criminal investigation.
In the case of a South Korean man who threatened US President Barack Obama in 2015, the South Korean prosecution (Supreme Prosecutors' Office of the Republic of Korea) thought the case to be international news and applied the sway public opinion method to the media around the world.
AFP news agency (Agence France-Presse), a French news media that did not question or verify it, became a means of cajolement by the Korean prosecutors' sway public opinion method and got a kidney punch to its reputation.
First, the South Korean prosecution reported the Obama intimidation in South Korea to France AFP and as soon as AFP announced that news, the Arabic and African media, the region where French language is used, also announced the news following the AFP report in chorus.
Since then, the media around the world, including the United Kingdom and the United States, which have trusted on the AFP news agency, have made a ridiculous scene of reporting the Obama intimidation in South Korea.
With this third-rate media coverage, the credibility of the French news media was hurt and the AFP was jeered by disappointed people all around the world that it was just a rubbish tabloid.https://www.cnn.com/2015/07/24/asia/south-korea-us-ambassador-attack-charge/index.htmlhttp://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/07/24/south-korean-man-made-online-threat-to-kill-us-envoy-police-say.htmlhttp://www.ibtimes.com/south-korean-police-arrest-man-over-alleged-threat-kill-us-envoy-mark-lippert-2023101http://www.naharnet.com/stories/en/185502http://english.yonhapne»Ver todo el mensaje.
