 ☞ Dialogue

[대화 주제]

A: These days, there are so many poorly written articles. I really hate that!
B: I know! Another way to say that is junk articles.
A: Many articles are repetitive with slightly different titles. You can tell some reporters can’t think for themselves.
B: I wonder if they are even qualified for their job.
A: Do you remember the press conference with President Obama back in 2010?
B: It boggled my mind that no one stood up to throw any question at President Obama when they had a chance.
A: There were about five hundred local and foreign reporters, but not even one Korean reporter was able to come up with a question for President Obama.
B: Are they only good at committing  plagiarism?
A: Maybe they are not competent enough to ask questions.
B: I still blush in shame thinking about them.
