Due to the economic conditions in the country and the short broadcast day, radio is the most widely used medium. In 2006, there were 16 AM, 14 FM and 11 shortwave radio broadcast stations. The main radio stations are Pyongyang Radio and the Korean Central Broadcasting Station. There is also a black propaganda station called Propaganda Radio – which purports to be broadcasting from South Korea.  Some foreign broadcast radio stations (see external links) that target North Korea are often jammed , though this can vary. The authorities designate such foreign media as "enemies of the regime".

In addition to China, Russia, and the UN, the . government is also implicated in aiding North Korea. Aside from the fact that . taxpayers are the largest financiers of the UN, . agencies directly funnel American wealth to the North Korean dictatorship. Under the 1994 Agreed Framework, the . government agreed to hand the regime two light-water nuclear reactors, as well as 500,000 tons of heavy fuel oil every year, in exchange for Pyongyang “freezing” its nuclear weapons program. The North Korean regime promptly nullified the deal. And yet, the . government continued to send supertankers filled with oil for almost a decade, giving the dictator more resources, energy, and time to oppress his victims. According to a Heritage report from 2002, North Korea was receiving so much American loot that it was the fourth largest recipient of foreign aid (after Israel, Egypt, and Colombia).
