Former governor blames “bad press” for North Korea’s bad reputation

Former governor blames “bad press” for North Korea’s bad reputation

From the “I Don’t Have the Strength” Department…

There are some narratives that not even MSNBC should be expected to screw up—and yet, here we are.

Today, Tamron Hall hosted former New Mexico Governor and UN Ambassador Bill Richardson to talk about Kim Jong Un’s barely-precedented call for a summit between between the leadership of North Korea and South Korea.

Throughout the interview, Richardson did a good job of pointing out how erratic the actions of North Korean regime has been, and was quick to put a damper on hopeful expectations that this proposed summit could mean a change in how the divided countries interact with one another.

Then, of course, whatever is in the water over at MSNBC’s studios seeped in to Richardson’s consciousness and took the wheel. When asked about the possibility of Kim Jung Un wanting to define himself as a leader, Richardson went off the rails and blamed the media for North Korea’s problems:

Politico has the money quote:

“He has been the victim, Kim Jong Un, of a lot of bad press, a lot of bad international attention, with the Sony hacking, with [being] taken to the International Criminal Court by some U.N. countries, a number of other very destabilizing moves that he has made, shooting the missiles, nuclear testing,” Richardson said on Friday on MSNBC’s “News Nation with Tamron Hall.”

Watch it here:

Maybe it’s just me, but I think a man who “purges” political opponents and allows his people to die of starvation deserves all the bad press we can throw at him.

Richardson never should have stepped off the space ship at Roswell.

    and he never should have escaped over that holding pen fence om Roswell New Mexico – just another illegal alien….

    “E.T. Richardson” phone home.

I don’t trust our government. North Korea isn’t “the bad guy.” And, China is building roads to access this part of Korea. While our government needs a “bad guy.” And, you’re not supposed to look at the mess in the Mideast.

If North Koreans actually had access codes to Sony they’d have been sending distress messages … like those that used to appear inside bottles that had been tossed overboard on ships sailing the seas.

Russians are probably involved, though. Because they not only have the hacks … they also know the tactics to use to erase fingerprints.

Oh, and there’s a pretty good possibility that Sony was hacked by insiders. Given that those loons who’ve been running “entertainment” fired a lot of people so that they could take home bigger bonuses.

If there are idiots on parade they’re the “leadership” Sony selected to run it’s entertainment division. (Which floats in money.) That Sony lent its name to this shows you they forgot the lessons of Datsun. (A car given a “special” name to protect that parent company, Nissan.)

This would explain a whole lot over at bsNBC…

Oregon Mike: Richardson should have never stepped off the curb at the street corner where he usually prostitutes himself.

Well I can see a 2016 presidential ticket of Elizabeth Warren and Kim Jong Un. Although Kim Jong Un might be too conservative for either Warren or MSNBC.

Where did Richardson say the bad press was either unfair or undeserved?

Attacking someone for something they didn’t say, or deliberating misinterpreting what they did say in order to attack it, is classic Straw Man Fallacy.

    The term VICTIM is kinda a give-away, ya moron.

Anyone want to chip in and get Bill a one way ticket back to North Korea?

Everyone is a “victim” these days except me. Wahhhhhh!

All you have to know is that he is a Democrat and a very stupid one at that.
