NBC’s Holt Duped By North Korea After Reporting From “Staged” Ski Resort
Liberals really do love those communist dictatorships…
How did NBC become so socialist that they are unable to even tell the truth when it concerns human rights?
An NBC News host was reportedly duped by North Korean propaganda after he delivered an upbeat news report from a ghost town in the secretive state that had been transformed into a ’busy’ ski resort.
Lester Holt reported from the Masikryong resort on Monday, a facility that was personally ordered by Kim Jong Un and is typically empty.

But as Holt delivered the TV report, he failed to notice that the North Korean government appeared to have drafted in skiers who wore identical outfits in an attempt to give the impression of a busy and progressive ski resort.
During the report, Holt claimed that the resort is a ‘source of immense pride for a country trying to present a new and modern face to the world.
The apparent gaffe was even noticed by Richard Grenell, President Trump’s nominee for U.S. Ambassador to Germany. Read more at Yahoo.

Almost everything in North Korea is a staged event.

Thank you Mr. Grenell for helping to open Americans eyes. I wonder why a reporter wants to fool his Countryman for the sake of $$ or a Top Story without the full story. You are a true patriot.
