Given my background in history and political science, I have a fascination with North Korea and its wacky Communist/Cult government, and Vice does some of the best/most interesting reporting on North Korea. The Caller has an interview with Shane Smith of Vice regarding his visit to these camps. Absolutely read the article, then watch the videos.
And can I just say this about the DC’s commenters? Seriously? You fucking mouthbreathers are whining about the fact that there are a few f-bombs being dropped by Smith and quoted by DC? Grow the fuck up, this Vice guy brings us absolutely brilliant original reporting, I, someone absolutely fascinated by North Korea (given my history and political science background) had no fucking clue about these Siberian labor camps, and you’re bitching because he drops a few f-bombs and used phrases like drunk-y and murder-y to describe his various run-ins with violent drunken Russian hoodlums? On top of the original reporting on yet more human rights violations that are routine with this absolutely sick, bizarre regime…and you’re bitching about a journalist using the word fuck in said reporting? Get over your fucking selves you goddamned immature puritans.
