The Korean supported Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, and was concerned that Barack Obama resembled the late former Korean president Roh Moo-Hyun -- in good parts and in bad parts, which resulted in a poor presidency. Well, the latest assault on Fox News by the White House looks eerily like Roh's attack on conservative media, which ended up frittering away Roh's precious political capital. The Korean worries that this cannot end well.
-EDIT 10/20/09 12:04 a.m.- One more thought: the Korean had previously thought that all the crazy media fights in Korean politics showed that Korean politics need to grow further. But now, it looks like an argument can be made that Korean politics is actually more advanced than American politics, since the problems of American politics is appearing to follow the problems of Korean politics a few years ago. How much longer until we see Fight Night in Congress? ("You lie!" sure seems like a great prelude to that.)
