The Japanese Media/Sleazeballs

Journalism as a profession has been getting less and less respect in the US and other countries, and in my opinion (having spent some time dealing with them on a daily basis) deservingly so. However, the Japanese media/journalists put other journalists to shame when it comes to being ambulance-chasing sleazeball sensationalists.

On June 11, I wrote about a woman who was being tried and convicted by the Japanese press. The Japan Times has published an editorial about this case and the unfairness of it.

But you really have to see this kind of stuff to believe it.
