Reveals how the Japanese media have dangerously overstepped their boundaries and distorted-even wiped out-honest news in favour of government propaganda. And worse, Japanese citizens are frequently persecuted and threatened by the very institution they turn to for truth.

From the Publisher:

Here is the quintessential example of a people betrayed through the corruption of the very news media that ought to be championing their causes. A Public Betrayed exposes deceptions, lies, and abuses of power in Japan that have led to such profound degrees of misunderstanding, confusion, and suffering that they have inspired the phrase "media atrocities." Key examples include:

· Vilifying innocent victims of terrorist attacks · Denying the Holocaust and supporting anti-Semitism · Smearing a prominent Buddhist leader · Whitewashing and denying one of history's worst war crimes, the Nanjing Massacre · Defaming Second World War Japanese military sex slaves or "comfort women"

Thorough, thoughtful, and provocative, this book lays bare the mechanisms and motivations behind these sobering abuses. And as the examples show, the very factors that have contributed to such injustices in Japan have become increasingly predominant in the news-media sectors of the West-factors such as extreme industry consolidation, the growth of nationalism, intense commercialism, and the erosion of media ethics. The lessons for the rest of the free world could be neither more profound nor more relevant. Now is the time to understand Japan and its media atrocities.

About the Author:

Takesato Watanabe is a professor of media ethics at Doshisha University in Kyoto.
