As of 4:00 pm Wednesday its newspapers and radio and TV stations had not mentioned the inauguration of US President Barack Obama, according to officials at South Korea’s Yonhap news agency.
Eventually the media got around to reporting the story but it was, shall we say, lacking in color:
Barack Obama took office as the 44th president of the United States on January 20. The inauguration ceremony was held at the Capitol building that day. He made an inaugural address there.
That’s just how we’d describe the proceedings, too.
