Japanese Earthquake Journalists “Total Scum”


The behaviour of a swarm of Japanese journalists who descended upon the scene of New Zealand’s recent earthquakes has disgusted and outraged the Japanese thanks to its illegal and grossly insensitive character, with journalists breaking into hospitals to interview victims and taking an almost pornographic interest in interviewing a soccer captain who had just lost his leg.
