South Korea’s Foreign Ministry has criticized the Sankei Shimbun for running a report on President Park Geun-hye that questioned her whereabouts on April 16 when the ferry Sewol sank, killing more than 300 people.

“The report was filled with baseless rumor and is a malicious report defaming the head of state,” ministry spokesman Han Hye-jin said Tuesday at a press briefing.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
