Journalist Lee Sang Ho believed that Yonhap News was distorting the truth in their media reports to the public regarding the rescue efforts going on. He said, "You'd be dead if you were my junior. Yonhap News, you b##### journalist, how can you call yourself a journalist you #####."
1. [+1,241, -48] The media reported that they had 750 divers, the most ever, for their rescue team, but in reality, they only had 13 people, which the government admitted to. No wonder journalist Lee Sang Ho got mad that they were deceiving the public. Yonhap News, get rid of yourselves. Do you really call yourself a media outlet?
2. [+1,000, -38] I feel so refreshed. Good job.
3. [+843, -39] Can't imagine how frustrated he was to go this far...
1. [+1,889, -145] Not reading Yonhap News anymore!! Journalist Lee Sang Ho, thanks for still caring about your profession. I watched your reports live!
2. [+1,738, -125] He's really making me feel refreshed
3. [+1,652, -112] What he's saying is true~~ Korea's media outlets and journalists need to reflect.
4. [+154, -12] The media lied about how this would be the biggest rescue effort in history... and a senior journalist pointed that out, saying he'd kill him if he was his own junior for lying. But of course the media chooses to focus on him for 'swearing during live broadcast'.
5. [+117, -4] Media said it'd be the biggest rescue effort in history but in reality, they paused rescue efforst to switch out the barge. The media really thinks of us as fools.
4. [+106, -8] This is what we need from someone who works in media. Although he wasn't able to control his anger, he had the bravery to point out what was wrong!!! The unfortunate reality is that journalists like him are quieted. We have on right to call ourselves a democratic country.
5. [+79, -4] We need more journalists like Lee Sang Ho, people who are alive and awake... Korea will never be awake unless our media is awake.
6. [+65, -6] I looked up clips on YouTube and read the articles on Naver... I had to hold in my urge to rage. 700 divers? Dozens of ships? Helipcopters???? Those were all lies. An entire deceivement of the nation. I felt so refreshed hearing Lee Sang Ho lash out like that... I never believed the media but this is just too big to let go. What they did was deceive the public with the lives of our future.
