It looks like NK has finally made it to 1982 in terms of newscast production values.
NK videos like this always give me this kind of uneasy nostalgia, sense memories from going through childhood at the tail end of the cold war I guess. 1982 seems just about on the nose, although my family didn't get our first TV until more like '85.

North Korea has it's own subreddit. It's nothing but links to the tightly controlled newspapers' and their online articles. The articles never stray from the narrative that North Korea is a prosperous country standing alone and ever striving to being a modern and peaceful nation struggling against Western imperialism and always professing near divine admiration and gratitude for Kim Jong Un's leadership. It's hilarious at times. My favorite recent article is when Kim Jong Un visited a "Children's Foodstuff Factory." The last photo at the lower left hand corner is great. The conveyor belt is a mere six inches off from the ground and would probably cause anything on it to go flying off if it actually worked.
We then proceeded to effortlessly fly a bomber over their country with no retaliation at all, in a means identical to what we did last time Best Korea swore they tested a nuclear weapon.
And the best part is the GOP faithful will believe every line of it as well because it makes Obama look bad.
I meant to submit this one because it has the Borat-like logo:
Submit it with "update dead link" and temporarily change the description to explain why people should vote the replacement up, usually works for me.

I had the idea a while back they could make a cartoon called Fat Hitler and it would be a sendup of Fat Albert. But then Cosby's many rapetastic adventures hit the news, so now it would have to involve Fat Hitler learning valuable lessons as he rapes everything in his country. Food, people, the media, weapons.
In the last episode he rapes the H bomb and it explodes. The end.
And Korean speakers who can tell us if this intonation and delivery is way over the top for a news announcement? Because it sure sounds like an amdram level of over enthusiasm to my ears.
Then again, she's announcing an H bomb, so perhaps it's justified.
It's way over the top, but it's normal for her. See a lot of NK news stories on TV here in Japan, and she's always like that.
