North Korea has accused leading U.S. broadcast media outlets of spreading disinformation about North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong Un’s motives for wanting to make a denuclearization deal with President Donald Trump.

Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the ruling Korean Workers’ Party Central Committee, published a commentary Tuesday attacking Fox News, CBS and CNN for featuring “U.S. high-ranking officials appear in their programs,” who claimed that North Korea was only seeking talks in order to get economic assistance from the U.S. The fate of the anticipated bilateral summit, which would be the first-ever meeting between a sitting U.S. president and North Korean supreme leader, remains unknown after a recent diplomatic spat and North Korea’s tightly-controlled media has sought to dispel opposing narratives.
