The nationalists not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.
- George Orwell
There's an article in Independent website about ever-growing revisionist views among the board members of NHK, the public broadcasting in Japan.
Naoki Hyakuta says Japan was lured into the Second World War by America while liberating Asia from white colonialism.He denies war crimes such as the 1937 Nanjing massacre, when Japanese troops killed thousands of Chinese civilians. Such views are common among revisionists in Japan. Mr Hyakuta, however, sits on the board of the nation’s public service broadcaster.
