Former TV Asahi news executive Sadayoshi Tsubaki was the first journalist ever summoned to testify before the Diet in Japan. He was accused of slanting his network's coverage of the LDP in the 1993 General Election that led to the party's downfall.
In this paper, I analyzed the influence of that event on the TV news coverage of the 1996 Generaal Election by comparing with the TV news coverage of the 1993 General Election.
Content analysis made clear differences between two things. There was anti-LDP bias in the 1993 TV news coverage clearly, but in 1996 TV news offered more balanced information.
