CARMINE SABIA: The anti-Trump media has sunk to a new low

Not since liberals fawned over the communist dictatorships of The Soviet Union and Cuba in the 1980s has the anti-American media bias been on such display.

The North Koreans have joined forces with the South Koreans for the 2016 Winter Olympics and have acted like reasonable people for a handful of days and the American media is set to forgive and forget.

The Ivanka Trump Of North Korea.

It was expected that North Korea would use the games to push its propaganda to the rest of the world. What was not expected was that they would be helped by the American media.

The majority of the focus has been on Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. From the first day of the games, when she gave Vice President Mike Pence the “side eye” as she sat near him, progressives were in love.

“The ‘Ivanka Trump of North Korea’ captivates people in the South at the Olympics,” the headline in The Washington Post blared.

The paper touted Jong’s “family connections and her ability to be a compelling saleswoman,” as reasons to compare her to the first daughter of the United States.

But Ivanka Trump is not a totalitarian who has overseen the starvation and murders of her people — a fact that The Post managed to admit only at the end of its puff piece.

“She is acting as a goodwill ambassador for a country that has earned no goodwill,” The Center for Strategic and International Studies Sue Mi Terry told The Post. “Kim Yo Jong is totalitarianism with a human face.”

Not to be outdone with glowing praise, CNN wrote a piece with the headline “Kim Jong Un’s sister is stealing the show at the Winter Olympics.”

“If ‘diplomatic dance’ were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un’s younger sister would be favored to win gold,” it wrote.

“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,” it added in the glowing story that also referred to her as “North Korea’s Ivanka Trump.”

And What About Those Cheerleaders.

ABC News got into the fray with a positive story about the North Korean cheerleaders who, it said, were commanding the “spotlight at 2018 Winter Olympics with synchronized chants.”

“Clad in coordinated outfits of red with white and blue accents, North Korea’s throng of more than 200 cheerleaders are stealing the spotlight at the 23rd Winter Olympic Games in South Korea as they chant, sway and dance in unison,” it said.

“At Saturday’s hockey match between Switzerland and the unified Korean team, the North Korean cheerleaders split up into groups and situated themselves in various sections around the ice rink. The squad of young women continuously sang, clapped and danced with gusto and unified precision, even as Switzerland crushed the unified Korean team 8-0,” it wrote.

And Reuters declared that North Korea would win the “diplomacy gold medal at Olympics.”

It is as if these media organizations either forgot about American student Otto Warmbier who was tortured into a coma, and eventually died, at the hands of the brutal regime.

Or the North Korea people who are starved and forced to live in poverty because their dictator won’t deviate from his goal of becoming a nuclear power.

Either that, or they despise President Donald Trump to such a degree that they support anyone who is against him.
