The present times, when the campaign for successfully accomplishing the cause of building a powerful socialist country is being dynamically waged, is calling for further enhancing the militant role of media, says Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in an article.
The article goes on:
Only when media educate the masses and encourage them to implement the lines and policies of the Workers' Party of Korea, can the revolution win victory after victory full of vitality.
To enhance the role of the Party's media is an important requirement for making all the people share the idea and intention with the Party Central Committee at any place and at any time.
The whole society will breathe as intended by the Party and our single-minded unity will be further strengthened as an invincible integral whole based on one idea when the media sensitively reflect the idea and intention of the Party Central Committee and persuasively explain them.
Enhancing the role of the Party's media is an indispensable requirement for giving fullest play to the inexhaustible strength of the popular masses and their might of self-reliance.
Only when the contents and forms of our media are steadily innovated in conformity with the Party's intention and the requirement of the developing reality, can they be a loud flare of the bugle leading the grand advance of self-reliance and great starter fire redoubling the people's revolutionary passion of revolution, patriotism and struggle.
To enhance the role of the Party's media is an urgent requirement for hardening the class consciousness of the people and their faith in socialism.
When the media enhance the people's revolutionary and class consciousness and harden their faith in socialism to cope with the desperate moves of the enemy, we can bring the enemy under our control ideologically and morally and accelerate the final victory of the revolution.
All the officials, journalists, editors and announcers in the field of media should ceaselessly make articles and compilations encouraging and spurring the advance of the country in order to make a positive contribution to building a powerful socialist country.
