N. Korea: U.S. Waging Cultural Invasion

SEOUL, South Korea -- North Korea on Tuesday accused the United States of sending midget radios and "impure" publications into the country to destroy the isolated communist state with "rotten imperialist reactionary culture."

North Korea's totalitarian government has reportedly tightened surveillance in recent months, out of fear that some of its hunger-stricken people were receiving smuggled tiny transistor radios capable of receiving outside news. Some U.S.-based Korean groups seeking democratic change in North Korea have attempted to send small radios carried by balloons into the North.

"The U.S. imperialists are now bent on their moves to send midget radios and TV sets into (North Korea) in an effort to break up the single-hearted unity there and degenerate and disintegrate it from within," the official communist party newspaper Rodong Sinmun said. "Out of the same motive, the U.S. imperialists are trying to send impure publications."

The article, carried by the North's official KCNA news agency, urged North Koreans and other developing nations to "guard against the intrusion of rotten imperialist reactionary culture, which is like a drug making the sound mind of the people anemic."

North Korea tolerates no independent news media. The North's state-made radios are set to receive only local stations.

Just send them playboys and a sears catalog.

It's all that we'd need.

Midget radios? Are these radios only to be used by midgets?

Why do North Korean information ministers sound like American university professors?
