The Mansfield Center for Pacific Affairs brought together media correspondents and researchers from the U.S. and Japan to study U.S. and Japanese media and their coverage of U.S.-Japanese relations. Speakers during the first panel discussed a survey conducted in the U.S. and Japan on media coverage of three major issues affecting U.S.-Japanese relations: the FSX jetfighters controversy, Japanese investments in Columbia Pictures and Rockefeller Center, and the Structural Impediments Initiative. The survey was conducted by studying both balance and objectivity in media coverage of the events in both countries. Balance refers to the extent to which the arguments by each country was given equal treatment in the press, and objectivity refers to the degree to which blame for a problem was assigned to one side or the other. Mr. Budner said balance was achieved through laying out both sides' arguments in the U.S., while in Japan neither argument was completely presented. Differences also existed in the subjects covered by the media in both countries. close
