The Problems of a Journalist

Friday, July 21, 2006 Posted: 12:02 AM JST

Although journalists are supposed to be objective and fair, a lot of factors conspire against these noble aims. The current conflict in the Middle East is a perfect example of how even excellent journalists can give very biased accounts. Their environment influences both what they report and the language that they use. In an article in Global Researcher, Jonathan Cook gives a very clear account of biased journalism. Highly recommended reading.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
