Japanese Press

I wrote a few entries about the Japanese press, and press clubs and how they are basically puppets for what the government wants published. Here is an article by Howard French, the New York Times reporter who spent several years in Japan working with this system. Skepticism, has already started going to cynicism as far as the Japanese media goes. Not that I believe everything I hear in foreign media either, I just know that it is less kowtowing to the government than Japan's.

Oh, but don't worry, Japan has completely changed since WW2. Uh-huh.
