North Korean media outlet threats down in first half of 2018: data

Threat Index at the lowest level in first 6 months of the year since 2011

Aggressive rhetoric in North Korea's primary news agency articles in the first six months of 2018 was at its lowest point since 2011, data from the KCNA Watch Threat Index suggested this week.

The KCNA Watch website scans English language articles from the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) daily and totals the number of aggressive words within the reporting, with the figure then divided by the number of articles published that day to provide a value.
