Media Literacy

It is getting less to watch TV programs on ground-based broadcasting channels, but more to watch ones on satellite broadcasting channels. I particularly like news, documentary and sports programs on NHK-BS.
Used to watch news programs, I would recognize news programs on ground-based broadcasting channels, not only news programs which Mino Monta appears and “Houdou Station” but also ones on NHK, as very emotional. Anchorpersons and commentators state their meaningless impression on topics which have no relation with their specialty. Their talks make me crazy. News programs should make up only to show facts and comments by specialists.
“BS News” on NHK-BS, which is 15 minutes on every hour, is very good in its simple contents just consisted of showing facts. “Ohayo Nippon” and “News 9”, which are on the NHK ground-based broadcasting channel, are more emotional than “BS News”. I think that “Close-up Gendai” which is on NHK and, “Morning Satellite” and “World Business Satellite” which are specialized for economic topics on TV Tokyo are most rational in news programs on ground-based broadcasting channels. I can watch news programs made by overseas broadcast stations on NHK-BS. Generally speaking they are more rational than Japanese news programs.
Fabricating research results in “Aru Aru Daiziten” came under severe criticism, and it should do that, but many programs would have problems if they did not fabricate facts. Would programs, on which clairvoyants investigate uncleared crimes and fortune-tellers act as hosts, be blamable?
News programs are getting emotional and anchorpersons state meaningless monologue, because they can get higher audience rate. I think that it is a kind of joke that natto make you lose weight, but someone believed it as true. I don’t like such an exaggerative word as Media Literacy, but it would be important. I would not watch TV without rational programs on NHK-BS.
