TV Asahi, Way too judgmental to nuclear argument
TV Asahi is one of the most major TV networks. There's a pretty limited number of countrywide TV networks, 6 or 7 of them. Therefore, it's easy to imagine that they have secretive deals all the time among them and decide what to report and what not to. The information we can get is therefore filtered by their arbitrary codes.
As I continuously insist, all of the TV networks have exposed distinct aspects as traitors to Japan except Sankei group. Since their wish is to overthrow their government, they never fail to try to undermine their government on any issues even if it's not for our development.
The reaction they showed to "a careless statement" by Shoichi Nakagawa is a case in point. He suggested that the argument whether we have nuclear weapons is allowed or not could be resourceful, and mass media pounced on him as expected.
I'll show you what I recorded Oct. 16th 2006, broadcasted by TV asahi, which I refer to as one of the "traitors".
It reported first the nuclear test executed by North Korea several days ago. They spent 9 minutes for this.
And here it comes. The above newscaster initiated a spark with a skeptical face and comment, "This statement provoked an immediate reaction from China, America, and parliament in Tokyo." The ticker says "causing significant ripples beyond Japan".
Well, from now on, you don't wanna see a lot of redundancy; TV asahi just tries to display many authorities to warn his statement. This guy shown in the above pic is from Democratic party, the second largest party that has never got their regime because they are survivors of Socialist Party that was very friendly to China, Soviet and North Korea. Japanese citizens have encountered a serious dilemma whether we choose Democratic party or not just because Democratic party can't read our mind since forever.
The next guy above is from Komeito, which is the incarnation of Soka Gakkai International. Although they are in governing regime, they don't even try to help him, and they repeat criticizing him. Komeito is known as a quick-change artist and you know why.
The man above is the person amid charges, Shoichi Nakagawa. If you carefully listen to his statement, he doesn't say anything about hurrying over getting armed with nuclear weapons. He is just saying that "since this is a democratic country, there's no reason to stop the discussion." Well, everyone knew that he secretly wants nukes, though.
Wow, there's so many people coming out to leave comments in this program. Next is an old man who is a representative of a victims group in Hiroshima. Those antinuclear groups are outstanding when protesting actions by America or Japan while they are silent when China or North Korea did the same thing. Well, just think about the money source. The fund for their movement has been supported by Social Democratic Party (North Korea side) or Communist party (China side). If you are American, that's what you really have to think about. If you want to pursuit peaceful Japan without nuclear weapons or regretful Japan about WWII, it is equivalent to bolster anti-Americanism as I told before. If those evil parties supported by China gets power, Japan will turn their face to China and be colored with anti-Americanism. (*please be advised that the group of this old man is not supported China or North Korea. There's other radical groups.)
The host of this program is also showing his doubt about Nakagawa's statement.
A commentator in the right is tricky. He is once interrogated during this program several months ago by Abe (current prime minister) whether he has a spy by North Korea as a close friend. Yep, this commentator is a sympathizer of North Korea.
I'll show you his close-up pic above. As a clear evidence, he didn't leave any important comment on North Korea in the previous news. But in contrast, he was very shrill when it comes to Nakagawa's statement. To begin with, which should be blamed first, one who actually did a nuke test or one who did a statement on beginning a discussion on building nukes? Sadly enough, we have only this news program during 10:00 to 11:15 in the night, so many of us can't help watching this biased TV news program.
After all, they spent 9 minutes just to criticize Nakagawa's statement. Althouth I didn't take a vidcap, they also reported the reaction of China and America in the middle of this news to lead us to a conclusion that the world is very concerned about Japan's atomic armament. Nine minites they spent is exactly the same length of time as they spent on North Korea. Is "a comment by a person about a proposal of argument of atomic armament" really supposed to be blamed spending so much time?
Good news is that liberalization of TV networks is going to be enforced five years later and more than 50 of other TV networks will be allowed to compete with those existing and corrupted ones.
