Within hours, North Korean state media covers Park impeachment

Article released less than three hours after Constitutional Court decision

Update 10/03/2017: At around 1738 KST, the male anchor of the state-run broadcaster Korean Central Television (KCTV) read the same statement uploaded on Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) earlier in the day.

North Korean state-run media covered the South Korean Constitutional Court’s final judgment on the impeachment of President Park Geun-hye on Friday, with coverage that was exceptional both in its timeliness and its evenhandedness.
