Aside from some interesting syntax, there's not much to be gleaned form the Korean Central News Agency's report on Eric Schmidt and Bill Richardson's arrival in the country:
Delegation of Google Corp. of U.S. Arrives
Pyongyang, January 7 (KCNA) -- A delegation of the Google Corp. of the U.S. headed by Bill Richardson, former governor of New Mexico State, arrived here on Monday by air.
It's a general rule with KCNA items that the bigger a story it is, the less they write. A highly-unusual high-profile U.S. delegation gets 30 words. "DPRK's satellite launch hailed by Nigerian organization" gets over 200.
The trip is thought to be related to the case of Kenneth Bae, a U.S. citizen being held in custody in North Korea
