You'd probably know better than I do - why is everyone getting bent out of shape about The Weeknd? Is it all because of that Guardian article?
No seriously, I have no idea who they are.
“The contrast between the local and foreign coverage of the crisis has been eye opening. Japanese news reports and government press conferences have had a measured, deliberate tone. Japan has its fair share of tabloid publications and conspiracy theorists. So why hasn’t the Japanese media sensationalized the situation as much as western media outlets have? For one thing, the stakes are too high. It’s easy to play up the downside when you’re sitting pretty in a television studio an ocean away from the reactors; not so much when you’re sitting a couple of hundred kilometers downwind. I assumed government officials—particularly Cabinet Minister Edano, whose constant television appearances throughout the crisis have elevated him to a sort of local superstardom—adopted a tone of restraint because they feared doing otherwise would have sent citizens into a panic. It’s easy for those used to the bombastic approach of foreign television to misread this as obfuscation or cover-up.” —News Desk: Postcard From Japan: Why I Stayed : The New Yorker
