A Tale of Two TV News Networks in the President Park Scandal
Another night of protests brought about 600,000 protesters to Gwanghwamun Square in central Seoul. And here's how the public really thinks of their news channels.
Two news vans. Parked next to each other. Filming the crowd.
YTN: Korea's version of AP meets CNN. The crowd tells YTN to leave for caving into pressure from the Blue House and not adequately investigating the scandal.
JTBC: Cable news upstart led by highly respected journalist Son Suk-hee. The crowd cheers for JTBC's coverage of the scandal and begins chanting JTBC News President Son Suk-hee's name.
