Giving Credit Where It's Due
Earlier this week popular independent journalist Yasumi Iwakami interviewed former Japanese prime minister, Yukio Hatoyama. During the interview Hatoyama said he would like to participate in this Friday's no-nukes demonstration outside the current prime minister's official residence in Tokyo. According to the vox populi (via Twitter) the quote was widely reported in the Japanese press yesterday and today with one minor omission. They say the reporting news outlets generally failed to give proper credit to Iwakami, noting the source as merely an unnamed "Internet TV site."
