"News23" at TBS(Japanese TV staion)

The News program named "News 23" is made by TBS(Tokyo Broadcasting System Inc. Japan).
Tetuya Chikushi,the anchoman reported "Trust and confidence in the mass Media(Gallap 2005/5)".
See the photo. They claimed this is "Trust and Confidence in the Mass Media Trend" at Gallop.

See "Trust and Confidence in the Mass Media Trend" Graph at Gallup.
"Confidence" is about 50%.

Tetsuya Chikushi and TBS reported fake data.

It seems that they want to say confidence rate for Mass Media is high. But the data is fake.

His report of confidece proves we should not believe Mass Media.

---- "South Park Evening News" ----

Tom the anchorman: “Peril, crisis and fear tonight as what appears to be a massive flood has overtaken the town of Beaverton, Colorado, home of the world’s largest beaver dam. Earlier today, a break in the beaver dam which protected the town broke open, trapping people in their houses and destroying their lives.”

Mitch, the reporter: “Tom, I’m currently ten miles outside of Beaverton, unable to get inside the town proper. We do not have any reports of fatalities yet, but we believe that the death toll may be in the hundreds of millions. Beaverton has only a population of about 8,000, Tom, so this would be quite devastating.”

Tom: “Any word on how the survivors in the town are doing, Mitch?”

Mitch: “We’re not sure what’s exactly is going on inside the town of Beaverton, Tom, but we’re reporting that there’s looting, raping and, yes, even acts of cannibalism.”

Tom: “My God, you’ve actually seen people looting, raping and eating each other?!”

Mitch:No, no we’ve haven’t actually seen it, Tom. We’re just reporting it.”


Death toll may be in the hundreds of millions in the city whose population is 8000.

It seems that the story is similar to Nanjing Massacure.
Someone claimed 300,000 people were killed in Nanjing whose population was 200,000. Nanjing is surrounded by the rampart. So, nobody could not go in and out there at that time.
