That is a stereotype middle class in the united states have come up with the better understand something they obviously do not understand in the first place.
Also if you truly thing our media is any better than North Korea's I have something to tell you, no media is truly free. It is just at what extent one media is more free than another.
You don't find objective articles in newspapers or on news channels, you find jumbled subjective responses that have interests that conflict with making the news truly free.
At least North Korea is openly running state run news that has it's interest at heart instead of American news that is not objective yet runs around like it is.
