The media has always played an important role in informing the public about international crises. One unexplored angle of the current North Korean nuclear issue is whether the media has been playing a constructive role or has contributed to heightened tensions. What are the positive and negative aspects of current media coverage in both the U.S. and the two Koreas? Can the media play a more responsible role in covering events on the Korean Peninsula.
KEI will host a distinguished panel of senior journalists and Korea analysts to discuss this important and timely issue.
