Needs the location in the intro, per the style guide. Also needs a slight copyedit, as there's some awkward wording. It's almost there, however. Ambi 13:04, 18 Nov 2004 (UTC)

I have reviewed Japanese media coverages on this issue (not the Radiopress, though, since it seems to maintain no web site). Two things I noticed regarding facts:

  • Some reports say that the removal of the portraits is not a new thing, but ordered in August.
  • Tass reported lately that the honorific title reappeared in the paper.

One thing about neutrality:

  • Explaining North Korea as one of stalinist states as a part of a news report sounds like this news story is from a bit opinionated source. Not that it is factually wrong. Am I alone here?

    • Not at all..."Stalinist" merely means "in the manner of Stalin". Any emotional connotation is purely a construction of the reader; it's not inherent to the word. Kurt Weber 06:06, 19 Nov 2004 (UTC)
