CNN raised eyebrows this weekend over its headline about Kim Jong Un’s sister, who is attending the Olympics in South Korea.

The headline read: “Kim Jong Un’s sister is stealing the show at the Winter Olympics.”

From the story: “With a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea’s presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games… Seen by some as her brother’s answer to American first daughter Ivanka Trump, Kim, 30, is not only a powerful member of Kim Jong Un’s kitchen cabinet but also a foil to the perception of North Korea as antiquated and militaristic.”

The article drew a quick rebuke.


North Korea has sent some of its highest level officials to the Winter Games in Pyeongchang, which started on Friday.
