These days I hardly watch TV anymore. It’s only the noon and night news. It’s like I’m watching it to see what kind of information is being shown. My main source of information is the internet. Of course, the Internet is a jumble of stones … you have to choose proactively here. But I don’t have to look at the information I don’t want to see. But with TV, you can be shown things you don’t want to see, and it’s not uncommon to see things you don’t want to see at all.
For the past six months, they’ve been doing a lot of unimportant news about celebrities’ marriages and affairs, for example, and they’ve been raising fears that the corona is dangerous, even though there’s no evidence to support it, and they don’t give any objective information about the corona…as a news program, it’s over. So I mainly gather my information online.
But a lot of people in the world believe what they read on TV and in the newspapers and don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes in the world, so it’s easy to control them. It’s really scary, but it’s going to be tough for everyone from now on. That’s okay though.
