free exchange of info, good

Now that the ROK officials have gone on to block the access to several DPRK or DPRK-related sites (which in my opinion shouldn't be done), the usual suspects are standing behind banners demanding free exchange of information between the South and the North (see Ohmynews).

Their sincerity in demanding "free exchange of information" would just be much more credible if they hadn't been the ones who demonstrated against and demanded the closure of the Free North Korea radio station last summer.

I think the T'ongil yôndae will also have to file a complaint if not go and have a demonstration against... Ohmynews for printing stuff like this:
The constant lying also poses dilemmas for journalists, Jang Hae-sung said. "Some colleagues were supposed to do a report about the quality of meat at a Pyongyang butcher's. But when they arrived, the place had no meat. So they staged things to give the impression that the butcher's was functioning normally. After the report was screened, residents complained to their party cell that it was a lie and that the shop had no meat. The journalist was punished for the false report. But he would also have been punished if he had failed to do the report."
