This book lays bare the mechanisms and motivations behind these sobering abuses. Takesato Watanabe is a professor of media ethics at Doshisha University in Kyoto. Библиографические данные.

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. From publisher description.

A Public Betrayed book. In that respect, Gamble and Watanabe's "warning to the west" has come true, but the state of modern media points out the inadequacy of their proposed fixes. Breaking up press clubs and reinforcing journalistic ethics isn't going to alter the fundamental relationship of consumers who want to pay for gossip and producers who want to sell it to them.

A Public Betrayed : An Inside Look at Japanese Media Atrocities and Their Warnings to the West. by Takesato Watanabe and Adam Gamble. Unfortunately, Adam Gamble (according to the acknowledgements, co-author Takesato Watanabe mostly played the role of mentor) shows signs of contempt for fundamental aspects of Japanese culture, while the basic points being made in the book become tiresome and repetitive when applied to multiple case studies. The histories of the events behind the case studies also leave something to be desired, in terms of clarity and robustness.

The book says that the printed media in Japan has a history of carrying advertisements for anti-Jewish articles and books. One of the magazines, Marco Polo, even ran material denying that the Holocaust ever actually happened. What this goes to show is how important the media are to the public of any country. You grow up in schools are are told things by the teachers and the books; when get out of schools, you are told things by the TV news, by books, radios, magazines, newspapers, etc. There is virtually no way that any person can check each source to see if what it is printing is accurate or not.

Everyone could benefit from reading this insightful, measured prose.

First let me start by saying if you're not familiar with this sort of material, this book may be difficult to digest or understand. Those who are interested in and familiar with subjects and industries such as broadcasting, publishing, documentaries and such will find this easier to understand. It is a very in depth book. Of course, if you're deeply, deeply interested in Japan this will be interesting for you on some level. It dives in depth into Japan's written media, newspapers and shunkanshi (weeklies). The authors have done very thorough research on their examples which they have used. Readers will be impressed and saddened to know that in such a nation as Japan, which has so much potential, such a sad current state of affairs exists in the media.

The criminal justice system in Japan is badly flawed in many ways, and the media/justice system relationship is just one aspect of this. Most visitors notice trial by daytime tabloid television is widespread and pernicious in the sub judicial stage of a crime, and at the time of writing this review a xenophobic campaign highlighting 'crime by foreigners' (statistically negligible) is being carried out by the national media. Where Gamble and Watanabe succeed is in highlighting the underlying relationships that allow the media to continue to fail the Japanese citizenry. Politicians control access and journalists/ editors fail to take a stand against the press clubs that reduce them to instruments of hegemonic control. Academics are weak and apathetic in their condemnation of this system, the police are complicit and the judiciary are co-opted. Having said that, ulitimately, as many commentators have pointed out, the Japanese publc themselves are to blame - no one takes a stand, ignorance and fear are everywhere. One serious flaw in Gamble and Watanabe's methodology is in assessing the impact the weekly magazines have. They give readership figures, and guesstimate how many people see the lurid ads on the trains. But their only survey seems to consist of Gamble taking to the streets one afternoon to ask a few dozen people if they believe what they read in the magazine headlines. Something a little bit more scientific and statistically rigorous would have added weight to their claims for the extent of influence the weeklies have on the populace. Personally, I find most Japanese people to be as disgusted by and untrusting of their media establishments as Gamble and Watanabe. If this one slack area could be taken care of in future editions, this is a book I would recommend unreservedly to those interested in Japan and/or media studies.

For those interested in media studies, this is an informative and enlightening treatise on how the media works, or doesn't work, in Japan. The authors provide a reasonably compelling argument that if current trends in the American media continue, ours could become more and more like the highly dysfunctional and ineffective media of Japan, which has been guilty of many infractions on the Japanese people's rights to information and privacy. Here we find that the Japanese media is built around an unusual system of press clubs, which foment severe collusion between government sources and unquestioning reporters, and huge-selling weekly newsmagazines that offer a bizarre mix of investigative reporting, sensationalism, and titillation. The unique structural aspects of this industry have resulted in systematic xenophobia, sexism, neonationalism, and character assassinations in the Japanese media that have real effects on the rights of the people.

Through case studies examined in this book, we also find that the Japanese media have a structural tendency to revise and cover up shameful episodes in the country's history (especially WWII atrocities), relentlessly smear nonconformists and reform advocates, and perpetuate the near-total social power of Japan's political and economic elites. Unfortunately, Adam Gamble (according to the acknowledgements, co-author Takesato Watanabe mostly played the role of mentor) shows signs of contempt for fundamental aspects of Japanese culture, while the basic points being made in the book become tiresome and repetitive when applied to multiple case studies. The histories of the events behind the case studies also leave something to be desired, in terms of clarity and robustness. But the moral of the story is that the main reasons for these failures in Japanese journalism are corporate owners' push for profits rather than accuracy or objectivity, and ideological collusion between media and government elites. Anyone familiar with media studies in the U.S. will know that we're not too far away from just that kind of structure here, and this adds a worrisome atmosphere to this book. [~doomsdayer520~]

Whatever the positives or negatives of this book (and there are both) the reader should know that it is evident, from the tone and content, that the liberal-leaning authors were motivated to write this book out of a deep concern over the conservative political paradigm in Japan. At the time of the publication of this book liberals had only held power only once for a short time in Japan's modern history. However, since this book was published the liberals did ascend to power, again, for three years, only to disillusion the electorate and be cast out of power for a second time, in a December 16, 2012 election.

These political facts do not alter truths, ably chronicled in this book, about media abuses in Japan and around the world, but these facts do undermine the underlying implication present in this work that somehow all will be well in the world, including the media, if only liberals are put in charge of government. It hasn't happened under Obama, and it didn't happen under liberal government in Japan.
