Tahara and the Jewish Conspiracy

Looks like one of Japan's most prominent anchormen has decided that the Jews were behind the arrest of Ichiro Ozawa's aide. Oh boy, here we go again.

Soichiro Tahara is on a huge network in Japan: TV Asahi. This isn't some talk radio hack. Yet the media in Japan is not covering this. It's a non-issue. Compare Tahara's world-view (the Jews control everything) to Morita's (asking for calm and perspective instead of conspiracy theories) and you get a sense of how topsy-turvy things are in the Japanese media world.
