2018 United States–North Korea Singapore Summit: History Made, World Focus and Media Reaction

“The media, particularly the American cable channels, have turned North Korea into a demonized pariah state and they’ve turned Kim Jong-un into a person they think is crazy. That’s rather unfortunate, but I come across it all the time.” — Bruce Cumings, the Gustavus F. and Ann M. Swift Distinguished Service Professor in History, and former chair of the history department at the University of Chicago.

[A renowned expert on Korea, he is also a frequent contributor to the London Review of Books, the Nation, Current History, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, and Le Monde Diplomatique. His most recent book, released in 2010, is entitled The Korean War: A History.]

As Variety noted, Springsteen’s award vaguely worded, recognizing “a once-in-a-lifetime theater going experience for the Broadway stage, allowing fans an intimate look at a music idol.” The award is also at least partially in recognition of the show’s box-office success; according to Broadway World, it had grossed nearly $55 million through last week. The show was not eligible in the competitive categories because not all of the approximately 850 Tony voters were provided complimentary tickets to the show, as is required, although the nominators were invited. https://variety.com/2018/music/news/b…
