Greek TV news presented still from Hollywood movie as real fact!
Gaffe or deliberate propaganda? In the effort to vilify the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) all possible means can be used. In their news programs, two Greek TV channels- Epsilon and Alpha TV- used stills from the film "The Interview" (2014), which they presented as a real fact! More specifically, both TV channels used the film's opening scene where a little North Korean girl sings an anti-american song.
"Is for the United States to explode in a ball of fiery hell. May they starve and beg, and be ravaged by desease. May they be helpless, poor, sad and cold" say the lyrics of the film's opening scene, which Epsilon and Alpha TV presented as an actual fact that took place in the DPRK!
"Creepy! Kim Jong-Un even put a little girl to threaten the US" was the headline of the Epsilon TV news report (20/4/2017) about the ongoing tension between Washington and Pyongyang!
The same part of the film was also used in the news programme of Alpha TV which- like Epsilon- presented the little Korean girl's song as a real video created by the DPRK against the US!
The US film "The Interview", directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, starring Rogen and James Franco, is an anti-DPRK propaganda movie masquerading as "comedy". In the film, a TV host (Franco) and his producer (Rogen) manage to secure an interview with Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea – only to find themselves hired by the CIA to assassinate him. The release of the film in 2014 had caused Pyongyang's reaction and the DPRK officially complained to the UN and denounced the movie as "reckless US provocative insanity".
