After an election with the lowest voter turnout in years, things look pretty bleak in Japan’s political scene. This story will just make it seem bleaker. And always remember Japan’s rankings in free press are in free fall, down to 72 internationally from 11 when Abe took office, as he gets people with news that goes against him fired.

Is Japan’s Top Politician Behind a Shameful Rape Cover-Up?

As if this year's cases of cronyism weren't enough. Short, shorter, shortest: the memory of the electorate. When's the next snap election?
