More evidence of outside information circulating in North Korea
A study commissioned by the U.S. State Department is getting quite a bit of attention in the international media, and rightly so. Entitled "A Quiet Opening: North Koreans in a Changing Media Environment," it was conducted by the consulting firm Intermedia. The study is valuable primarily because it provides empirical evidence that the North Korean public is using new media, including mobile telephony, television, DVDs, USB keys and so forth to consume information, including news and entertainment from the outside world.
