Idiocy of the Day: the AP on the Kim Dynasty

AP stands not for "Associated Press" but for "Asinine Puffery."  Look at this:
Kim Jong Il inherited power after his father, revered North Korean founder Kim Il Sung, died in 1994.
There is nothing to revere about the founder of that brutal totalitarian slave state.  Whoever wrote that word gets the "dipstick du jour" tag.  Disgusting.  Or maybe, just maybe, it's an autocorrect error and that word is really supposed to be "reviled"?
