11 Reasons for demonstrating in front of Fuji Main office

Seems that too much Korean drama as been reported by many media before is not the only reason on why the demonstration against Fuji TV happen. From these youtube clips we can hear the other actual reasons for the act.

Read more...Collapse )

Written by Username8098@youtube:

Fuji Television Network is one of the TV stations in Japan. We criticize Fuji TV Network.
The broadcasting station of the own country is partial to only a certain one country. In addition, they diminish an athlete and the national interest of the own country. We criticize such inclination broadcasting. Because Fuji TV broadcasted only Korean contents, it was a fact that some people criticized Korean contents. However, the people of the Fuji TV protection call it racial discrimination. We Japanese do not perform criticism of others without a reason. We avoid racial discrimination most.
I write some reasons why we criticize Fuji TV Network. Because there are too many reasons to write here, so I write several reasons.
Fuji Television Network doesn't broadcast following problems. Moreover, they are causing following scandals recently.

on to the reasonsCollapse )


seems like actually they've hold their grudge against Fuji for quite a long time now and the Takaoka's incident really sets the trigger and we can hear clapping and agreeing from the bystanders in those videos.

well, how about this. I'll ask Fuji TV to air movies about Comfort Women. That shut all those people up.

Exactly. It's interesting how people love to forget the past.

I..actually have problems reading the English in there...

copied straight from English translated by Japanese netizens. didn't bother to do a beta-check. just hoping people will understand the gist of it and where did the protests actually came from/their side of the story.

I won't even comment on those ppl on Omona (one of the reason why I think KPOP fans are morons)
But if you are foreigners, it will be difficult to understand this situation.

The article is correct. It's a combination of many events and hard-feelings from the past. I myself have grown to have an opinion on Fuji TV.

It's not dumb, stupid or racist. If you're saying these things, you just don't understand, that's all.

Exactly, most of the people who are commenting on this saying that Japan is "paranoid" are usually armchair observers from Amuurika and/or people who have no connections all the way over there.

I don't live in Japan nor am I Japanese, but I can see why they'd be a bit worried. #9 is a very big red flag to me.

This whole thing gives me the biggest fucking head ache. I know that it is dismissive to say, "Just grab your remote," but honestly. Fuji TV, in becoming more Korea oriented, is just trying to pander to a certain audience (which is the one that gives a crap about Korea). They are not trying to undermine Japanese culture: they're just trying to stay competitive by jumping on the extremely lucrative band wagon. And they are certainly not trying to brainwash anyone with the wall behind the news casters. I mean, really.

Even thought it is obvious that this situation will continue and more "messages" will be revealed. I have to agree with your comment.
The information that is being passed on by the media makes it seem that Fuji TV is all about the money and as a private organization I can't see anything wrong with that. They change with the times and what makes more money.

Though who ever was in charge in the editing room during broadcast for number 9 was probably fired. Hopefully anyway.

Fuji you going down.
I was neutral until I read #9. Big booboo.

Ok I love Japan, and clearly I don't mind THAT much because I'm choosing to live here but

We Japanese do not perform criticism of others without a reason. We avoid racial discrimination most.

Yeah right

They're entitled to their opinions of course and power to them if they feel that strongly about it. Honestly Japanese people don't do it often enough. BUT people need to wake and see there is a LOT of prejudice in this country, and lot of it is directed at Koreans and other Asians. And no matter how much you say its not about that, its partially about that.

Even things that may seem innocuous, its racism. And those of us who have it directed at us can choose how to respond, and it may BE completely harmless. But that doesn't make it not racism.

Furthermore, Fuji is a private broadcaster and has the right to broadcast whatever they want and whatever brings in the ratings. They have just as much right to do that as the protesters have to not like it. They just have to realize, they're probably not going to change things. Broadcasting these Korean shows is obviously bringing in a lot of money for Fuji.

Gosh paranoic much...

This is still going on?

Japan I think has a lot of ignorance and a lot of prejudice. Whilst they are very sensitive about prejudice towards them they are not always sensitive the other way around.

The QI incident from a while back came up at my Eikaiwa and one person felt very strongly that it was very offensive and all but demanded an apology from me. However the same person couldn't understand why I was upset when she started going on about WW2.

As for Fuji TV going by the list, if some of the items are true then I think there are some issues that need to be looked at. However the way the protesters are going about it especially with the anti-Korea undertones does not paint them in a particulary good light. Reviewing the actual reasons for the tensions and working to resolve them I think would help.

The whole racial tension issue is very sensitive to Japan with all their other problems. I think the Government needs to wake up, start sorting things like the national debt, get Japan innovating again and start exhibiting a message of tolerance and maybe apologising for a few of the nasty things its done.

That said, there are nice people in Japan who are genuinely curious and do have active interests in other cultures. There is hope for them!

I can see how Number 9 would seriously offend some Japanese.
benihime99 24th-Aug-2011 08:05 am (UTC)
Not taking part of the argument this time cause some of these are very good reason to manifest against fuji (lack of info for example... cf. n° 1 (partly) and 2) but just pointing out a few mistake

"Because Fuji TV broadcasted only Korean contents" - "Korean contents 40 hours per a week"... make up your mind it's either only korean programme (wich make it 168 hours or just 40)
"We Japanese do not perform criticism of others without a reason. We avoid racial discrimination most." So lolled at this one

I can understand the national anthem thing but the mentioning of subliminal messages... yeah. It's like, while I didn't agree with them (because hey, private TV station can do what they want), I could understand at least. Thennn the tinfoil hat came on.

But Fuji TV will only begin to care when they lose money, I think.

lobelias 24th-Aug-2011 11:58 am (UTC)
those sound like shit reasons tbh.
speaking as a someone born in raised in japan, i doubt any of those seriously offended most japanese people.
kimiko1387 24th-Aug-2011 12:36 pm (UTC)
I think it's fair to complain and complain often when a broadcasting company isn't doing what you the consumer wants reporting crucial news, lack of patriotism, or favoritism towards particular views (If you live in America try to remember our "lovable affection" for the fair and balanced news source Fox News).

While I can't understand some of these because I haven't lived or grown up in Japan, I do think these are fair reason to be upset with Fuji TV.
