I also think the amount of media coverage is absurd. Considering the secrecy in which North Korea is enshrouded, I find it strange that they're
paying so much attention to this funeral. Since he died, I feel like his son is proclaimed the leader of North Korea everyday, because everyday it's
the same headline. There's nothing really to it, he died at a respectful age and as in any other dictatorship, his son will be the next face they
will put on every statue and building. Perhaps this is only the seasonal dose of tragedy that they want to put on our holiday table, or they want to
shift back the attention to North Korea and make it seem dangerous again, now that allegedly it is run by a 27 year old. Whatever it is, it's not
because the international community wants to pay respect to Kim Jong, as the media always demonized him and the state. Media hypocrites!
