The controversy surrounding Cho Kook, a professor and former Minister of Justice, is still underway. While some argues he deserves such a series of mishaps, the others believe that he was victimized by Witch Hunting heralded by the conservative media. The truth remains at large. The authors sense, however, that the case can be the product of discourse politics cooperated by those who want the status quo in Korean peninsula. Therefore, the authors explore two questions related to this controversial debate. First, this study explores to reveal why the public, which initially did not respond much to criticism discourse about its homeland, actively responded and the forces that led the situation. Secondly, this paper pays particular attention to deciphering discursive strategies adopted by the media believed to collaborate with Christians, anti-Communists, North Korea fugitives, and U.S. government. With regard to the first topic, analysis shows at first that four factors including anti-communism, flunkyism toward America, development mentality, and collective feeling against unfair society were called into play while responding to target audience. It did also reveal that those beneficiaries of national division have taken a critical part either by participating in public demonstration or signing on statements. Final discovery lies in the social construction of ‘Angel and Devil’ elaborated seamlessly by logical, emotional and ethical arguments. Such tactics as agenda setting, framing, and sourcing were found in addition. The authors insist thus that what matters is not improving journalism quality but exposing the reality of discourse politics which stands in the way toward a peaceful unified nation.
