Mr. Kasahara will talk about the most pressing problems facing Japanese journalism today. Anyone interested in the future of the U.S. news industry will find Kasahara's insights compelling. He will consider issues such as the increasingly radical opinions expressed in Japanese newspaper editorials as a way to stand out in the industry and the effects this tactic has had on polarizing the country's politics. Issues ranging from Japan's reliance on nuclear power to strengthening its military relationship with the U.S. and dealing with its WWII legacy are sure to be interesting.
