NHK World

Stimulating article by editor-in-chief of Monocle (and Japanophile), Tyler Brule, criticising NHK World. (And if you don't know what it is, that's not unexpected.) See here on the FT where he says,

"At a time when Japan should be making strategic plays to strengthen its voice and influence in the world, it is producing a TV service that reinforces many of the negatives that plague both the government and corporate Japan: rigid, bureaucratic, slow, out-of-touch, arrogant, inward-looking, dated and not particularly international"

for starters.
