Press Conference: Yu Terasawa, Winner of 100 Information Hero

The Media Silence Surrounding Japan's "Information Hero"
Yu Terasawa
Winner of 100 Information Hero (by Reporters without Borders)
Language: The speech and Q & A will be in Japanese with English interpretation)

On May 3, World Press Freedom Day, the France-based organization Reporters Without Borders selected one hundred individuals worldwide as "Information Heroes" for their "courageous work.” The 100 had helped "to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."

Among the recipients, mostly journalists, who had this honor bestowed upon them was one citizen of Japan–the freelance journalist Yu Terasawa.

But if you haven't heard anything about this impressive honor bestowed upon our journalist colleague, Terasawa, it should come as no surprise: Without exception, every major Japanese media organization has so far entirely ignored this story and has refused to inform their readers or viewers about it. This stands in sharp contrast to the usual excitement that is generated in this nation when a Japanese receives an honor from a prominent international organization.

Could the silence possibly be related to the fact that Terasawa's award was given to him, in part, because "he also took on that most Japanese of institutions, Kisha Clubs, associations of newspapers companies and TV stations with exclusive–and often complicit–access to press conferences and official sources"?

Please come to the Club and hear directly from the man who the Japanese media barons don't want you to listen to.
