【Twitter】 Fukushima Crisis Coverage: is there journalism in Japan?

  • @davidwagnerasia: Attending a presentation by NYT Bureau Chief Martin Fackler at I-House in Tokyo. The theme: Japanese journalism during 3/11...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "Initial coverage of the Fukushima crisis on NHK was pretty good"....

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "When CNN arrives, it's time to leave. The story is over"....

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "Pack journalism (In groups) created competition. Japanese journalists are like accountants focused on numbers"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "Where I have a problem with the day the crisis was covered was related to the nuclear coverage"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "YouTube use by officials in Tohoku had a big impact"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "Japanese journalists were writing everything was okay, but the journalists were running away"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "Damage due to baseless rumors was a criticism used against foreign media related to a meltdown"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "Proclamation of safety (used for food safety) unraveled once independent testing of rice was done in Fukushima city"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "The Japanese media were saying the same things as officials to downplay the risk. That's not our job"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "The Japanese media have not captured the anger of people in Fukushima"....

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "The US view was dangerous until proven safe. The Japanese view was safe until proven dangerous"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "Regarding food safety, there was a tendency to trust official views and ignore others"....

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "The public in Japan is very mistrustful of the media. Journalists don't seem to have much self-reflection"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "Japanese journalism is always authority and action"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "The Press Club is full of journalists waiting for news feed....like birds in a nest waiting to be fed"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "if you criticize in Japan, you are cut off from reporting. It creates passive journalism"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "Journalism in Japan is not a profession. They are like salarymen... A part of the system"....

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "Japanese journalists tend to side with the authorities"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "It's amazing to me that the same people who caused the Fukushima plant disaster are still running the show"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: Fackler: "Japanese journalists don't see the Press Clubs as a problem"...

  • @davidwagnerasia: A truly interesting talk by Martin Fackler. Hard to believe it was all "on-the-record"!...
