A Public Betrayed
Friday, October 01, 2004
Japan has the world’s second largest economy and a flourishing democracy. But one thing this democracy lacks is a responsible press. The country’s dailies provide little more than government-approved press releases, and the weekly tabloids offer shocking exposes of dubious truth. That’s according to the new book “A Public Betrayed: An Inside Look at Japanese Media Atrocities and Their Warnings to the West.” Brooke talks to the authors, Adam Gamble and Takesato Watanabe.
