Text: NHK. “Kishida calls for negotiations to be started on UN Security Council reform.” https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20220921_09/

Some elements of this text to consider:

  • NHK is the Japanese national broadcaster like the BBC in the UK or CBC in Canada.
  • The news article is certainly focused on Kishida and makes no attempt to seek other sources.
  • This article could be criticized for being one-side; it is very rare to see a new article written in this way. NHK has been criticized in the past for presenting the government’s point of view uncritically.
