Pyongyang, March 24 (KCNA) -- Washington is busy using media to spread "U.S.-style democracy" all over the world.
An article posted on Global Research, a website of the Institute for
Globalization of Canada, on March 11 termed the U.S. a sham democratic
country that works hard to make "democracy of its style" prevail in the
world by setting in motion media to deceive the popular masses and
maintain dictatorship for the privileged class.
The U.S. has established and put under its control influential media
to intensify censorship so that the truth behind the actions
perpetrated by it such as the invasion of Iraq and the engineering of a
coup in Ukraine may not be known to the public.
After singling out the ideological and cultural poisoning as one of
the major channels for "spreading democracy", the U.S. has zealously
used newspapers, magazines and other publications, internet, TV
broadcasting services, economic exchange, etc. as levers for hyping
"advantages of U.S.-style democracy."
Media of the U.S. and other Western countries have put under their
control three fourths of the world internet infrastructure to monitor
most of world-wide information exchanges. By dint of their economic
potential and latest sci-tech superiority, they monopolized huge modern
information means to give wide publicity to reactionary ideas and
culture and misinformation to meet their demands and interests.
They are gagging those calling for justice, misleading the public
opinion as they please, cooking up lies in a bid to embellish the
unpopular capitalist society.
A particular mention should be made of the fact that they are
further intensifying the reactionary propaganda by using information
means in an effort to tarnish the image of the countries calling for
independence against imperialism and contain their rivals.
The primary goal of their news service is to attain ulterior
purposes by shocking and confusing the mentality and psychology of
peoples of those countries, instead of informing them of truth.
By intensifying smear campaigns, they toppled the government of
Saddam Hussein who was the legitimate president of Iraq, a sovereign
state, and the one of Gaddafi of Libya. They are running the whole
gamut of false propagandas in a bid to do harm to such anti-imperialist
independent countries as the DPRK, Cuba, Iran and Venezuela.
They incited the anti-government forces in Syria and Ukraine to spark off civil wars and cause serious humanitarian crises.
Now "U.S.-style democracy" has become a source of trouble that
causes political chaos, disputes and wars in various parts of the world.
The U.S. noisy call for "democracy" is a mockery of genuine
democracy and an unpardonable challenge and insult to humankind. -0-
