Hehe, I did. Like what else is new!?!

The trolls on JT did a good job of blasting Fuji TV. Sure North Korea was propaganda mongering, but the questions were pissing me off. What I forgot that was mentioned by JT poster was that her face was shown.

She's under age. In Japan, her face and voice would be masked. She's North Korean (aka GAIJIN) by most Japanese eyes so showing her face is like OK!

jerks ...
Hey, did you know your father is really the milkman?
Did you know you're mother was first a lesbian then a hooker before she married your father?
Did you know ALL this?
jerks ...

Too bad these jerks weren't the ones who got abducted!

I don't know ...
The interview if you saw it you might understand. Here we have a 15 year old answering just as good as or even better than Clinton did concerning Lewinsky. Who took right hooks fully on the chin and lets only the slightest tear show in her eye when the fool reporters went on all about her mother, grand parents and father. A young girl who's father is no where to be during the interview.

Something was just weird about the whole thing. Even if she was being used and had been brain washed, she shouldn't have to face "did you know your mother is Japanese" questions.

yep.

I checked with some students on the minor bit. They all agreed. The Media and Japan has written her off as Korean. Go figure.

Reported by Mainichi News, Oct. 30:

Megumi musume interview a ratings winner

Fuji TV Network's controversial broadcast of an interview with the daughter of one of the Japanese abducted by North Korea turned out to be a massive ratings winner in the Kanto Region, according to Video Research Ltd.

"Namida no Message" (Message of Tears), the two-hour long news show broadcast from 9 p.m. on Oct. 25, earned Fuji average ratings of 26.3 percent.

The show focused mainly on Kim Hye Gyong, the 15-year-old daughter of Megumi Yokota, who was tragically kidnapped by North Korean agents as a 13-year-old in 1977 and, according to Pyongyang, died of suicide in 1993.

Fuji came under fire for asking excessively probing questions of Hye Gyong, who cried on camera and apparently learned for the first time from reporter's questions that her mother was a kidnapped Japanese.

In the three days after the program was showed, Fuji was swamped with messages about the show and the mass of calls eventually caused a breakdown in the network's telephone switchboard. It received 16,500 messages about the show and had dealt with about 1,500 when the phones went out of service.
