The latest in our series of handy tips from Kim Jong Il, the Dear Leader, extracted from The Great Teacher of Journalists (“an informative guide to practising journalism under a communist dictatorship”).

This one’s for Fred Hilmer and John Hartigan:

several occasions, but you still pay little attention to it. Unless you
bring up a reserve of journalists in a planned way, you will not be
able to replenish the ranks of journalists and steadily improve the
quality of the newspaper.”
