North Korea's World Cup


Evan Osnos notes:

North Korea succumbed 7-0 [in its match against Portugal], and the result does not appear to have been reported in the North Korean press. No sign of it in North Korea’s main newspaperaccessible by a Japan-based portaland, so far, the official North Korean news agency has not yet gotten to the story. Instead, lead pieces for the day include “Revenge-vowing Meetings Held,” “Russian Dance Company Performs” and “US, Provoker of Korean War.”

The invisible cell phones must have malfunctioned.
