    With respect, what is the point of all these various websites, outlets, media ec etc keep reciting this stuff ?

    We know they are there, and even if you didn’t, these pointless stories don’t actually achieve anything
    to either audience.

    Maybe it’s a slow news day for the BBC.

    I don’t know about the theory of them just being a cheap psyop. Keeping a shortwave station on the air isn’t cheap. Especially for a country like North Korea where electricity is at a premium.
