Breaking the ‘Static’ in Japan

So, before any more time goes by, let me share a few thoughts on this topic with you.

The idea of establishing an independent news media in Japan on the model of Democracy Now! is something I have been floating among progressive friends for a few years now. Or if that was not possible, I maintained, we at least need to invite Democracy Now! someday to broadcast live from here in Japan.
