Americans Watched Live As Trump Shook Kim's Hand. North Korean's Didn't

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Americans watched live as their president shook hands with North Korea's leader. But North Koreans did not. A BBC employee who monitors North Korean media says state TV delayed coverage as the president spoke and played a U.S. video promoting North Korea's future without nuclear weapons. North Korea showed counterprogramming, an opera about miners dancing in mining hats. Only later did North Koreans receive the news, carefully filtered. It's MORNING EDITION.
