Talk:The Chosun Ilbo
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
Chosun Ilbo can't have reported critically on the pro-Japanese Korean king during the Korean Empire, as the Korean Empire ended in 1910 and the Chosun Ilbo was founded in 1920. Maybe the original writer was referring to the Korean family that still existed in some subordinate form during Japanese rule. I edited out the reference ot the Korean Empire near the beginning of the history section, but it could be put back in with some clarification if somebody knows exactly what the old text was referring to. --Reuben 18:59, 25 November 2005 (UTC)
Choice of style: Chosun Ilbo or The Chosun Ilbo? I could go either way. You would translate it as The Chosun (or Korean) Daily News, with a definite article, but that doesn't necessarily settle it. If anybody knows what style is used when it's cited by English-language newspapers, that would probably be the best guide to follow. --Reuben 20:17, 25 November 2005 (UTC)
- The Chosun Ilbo folk use the definite article on their English-version site, FWIW. 220.127.116.11 09:14, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
Anybody know anything about Japan sending troops to Shandong around May of 1927? This is in the current text, but Japan didn't invade China proper until 1937. Was this some other incident? Or perhaps the date is wrong? --Reuben 20:25, 25 November 2005 (UTC)
- The Hankyoreh is probably the closest answer, although it doesn't bear nearly as much influence on the society as the top three newspapers—Chosun, Joong-Ang and Dong-A, all of which happen to be on the right side of the spectrum (they are often colloquially grouped as 조중동 Cho-Joong-Dong for that reason). It is widely accepted that Chosun's stance leans much more to the right, even when compared to the other two; I can't think of any major far-left newspaper to balance that though. —blue-kun (talk) 19:51, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
In order to tidy up the English grammar, I might have changed the context slightly.
Chosun Ilbo has been undertaken annual inspections since Audit Bureau of Circulations was established in 1993.
was changed to

at (UTC) 17:08pm, 20/02/08. I assume this is what the first sentence (grammatically incorrect in English) means though if someone disagrees that this is what the original author meant please feel free to alter it further. Lstanley1979 (talk) 17:09, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
I reverted this page because:
1. It had been rewritten as POV propaganda by a local activist with poor command of the English language.
2. The propaganda lacks adequate sources.
I am quite aware that the Chosun Ilbo is a very controversial institution among leftists and "pro-unification" activists in Korean society, and I am reading up on the issue. I will try to get to it in due time with adequate sources in English.Jayzames (talk) 01:41, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
More POV pushing
Again, removed clumsy, bad English POV pushing, i.e. " Also partly owing to far conservative style of writing, distorted perspective and fabrications, Chosun Ilbo is named as the mass media with the lowest credibility among Korean newspapers and TV stations" The source cited is:
1. In Korean, and not English, and this is English Wikipedia. It also doesn't say who did the survey, or who the respondents were. The closest I can figure out is that it was performed by Sisain itself or the Journalists Association of Korea (reference here) . I don't think Sisain is likely to be a reliable source about a competing organization, and the Journalists Association of Korea appears to be a highly polemical lobby as well, as should be apparent from the caricatures on its homepage even to non-Korean speakers.
3. The Chosun Ilbo is manifestly not an "extreme right" newspaper, if far right is to denote Nazism or Fascism. It is a conservative newspaper (by Korean standards).
