Journalists demand a stop to political interference

In an unprecedented move, journalists from South Korea’s public broadcasters KBS and MBC have overwhelmingly voted to go on general strike from 4 September, over management interference. The workers at both media outlets are demanding the resignation of management and directors whom they accuse of undermining the fairness and credibility of public broadcasting through their actions. This strike can be seen as a continuation of the recent mass public protests against corruption that has already claimed the country’s President, Park Geun-hye, and the Chairman of the country’s biggest corporation, Samsung’s Lee Jae-yong.
