Report: SKorean blogger arrested


news.yahoo.com

SEOUL, South Korea – A South Korean blogger pleaded not guilty Saturday to charges that he spread false economic information on the Internet, a news report said, in a case that drew heated debate over freedom of speech.

The blogger, identified only by his surname Park, gained prominence among South Koreans because some of his dire predictions about the global economy, including the collapse of Lehman Brothers, later proved to be correct.

Known widely by his pen name "Minerva," the mythological Greek goddess of wisdom, the 31-year-old Park was accused of spreading false information on an Internet discussion site last month that the government had ordered major financial institutions and trade businesses not to purchase U.S. dollars.

I thought this would be a nice to read in addition to the Peter Schiff thread. It goes to show that people that share investment advice have ulterior motives. There seems to be an unusual desire on the part of some that frequent this site to take and run with anything that is consistent with their preformed opinions of the world.

I would take it further and suggest that given the proximity in time and similiarity of the subject matter between the South Korean and Peter Schiff that they are either both very knowledgeable about these things or receiving information and directions from a common source.
