CNN Slammed For Glowing Article on Kim Jong Un’s Sister: ’She’s Starving Her Country to Death’

After CNN tweeted an article that many took as promoting Kim Jong Un’s sister in a positive light, the internet savaged the network from all sides. The article, headline “Kim Jong Un’s sister is stealing the show at the Winter Olympics,” began with the following graf that painted the brutal dictator’s sibling in a glowing light: “If ‘diplomatic dance’ were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un’s younger sister would be favored to win gold. With a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea’s presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games.” CNN was met with vicious comments from Twitter, as members of the media on the left and right took to slamming the take: This is the side you’re taking just to spite the VP?
