Event Type: Speaker
A Conversation with Christine Hong - Board of Directors, Korea Policy Institute - Asst. Professor, UC Santa Cruz

Relations between the United States and North Korea have reached a nadir, and in most Western media reports it is the seemingly irrational harsh rhetoric emanating from North Korea that is to blame. Inexplicably, we are told, North Korea has chosen to raise tensions.

What is missing from this image of hostile North Korean behavior and blameless American victimhood is context. As is often the case, the media present events in an isolated fashion as if arising suddenly and without cause. ~ Korea Policy Institute

In this edition of Other Voices TV, we'll try to to provide the context to the seemingly neverending series of crises on the Korean Peninsula, the context that our corporate media miss ... or ignore.
