American Occupation Control Over Broadcasting in Japan, 1945-1952.
Luther, Catherine A.; Boyd, Douglas A.
Journal of Communication, v47 n2 p39-59 Spr 1997
Examines military occupation force's role in shaping Japan's contemporary broadcasting system. Notes that controls placed on Japanese broadcasters were often rigorous and uncompromising, despite Washington's initial instructions to give guidance to the Japanese without overt control. Suggests that this domination created an environment conducive to the development of broadcasting systems in Japan that are vulnerable to governmental authority. (SR)
