The Communist government of North Korea has at least partial control over hiring, news collection, and story selection for the Associated Press' Pyongyang Bureau, according to a report from NK News. The report hinges on a 2011 draft of an agreement between the AP and the state-run Korean News Agency of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (KCNA) obtained from sources within the AP, and on interviews with 14 current and former AP staffers.
