Japan: J-CAST vs. newspapers

Blogger smashmedia points to [ja] Japanese business news site J-CAST‘s recent negative campaign against traditional media. The blogger posts links to a J-CAST interview [ja] with freelance journalist Tetsuya Kuroyabu [黒薮哲哉], who explains that more than 20% of newspapers (so-called “oshigami”) are actually undelivered, concealing a lower-than-expected readership; the blogger also links to an interview [ja] with journalist Toshinao Sasaki [佐々木俊尚], who describes the continuing hatred of the Internet among the Japanese newspaper industry.
