The Marmot's Hole is a popular weblog by American writer Robert J Koehler dealing with Korean politics and society. It is believed to be the most widely-read English-language blog dealing with Korea-related topics.[1] Because of this status, it is frequently used as a source for news stories about the expat community. [2] In addition, many international sources turned to it for reaction after the 2006 North Korean nuclear test.[3] The Marmot's Hole has also received attention from Korean media, notably on the occasion of its recommendation for Americans to thank South Korea for aid following Hurricane Katrina.[4] The blog first gained media attention in 2004, with a Korea Times piece on expat blogs. [5] The blog can serve as a good introduction to Korea, but the neutrality of the content is debatable[citation needed].
