The book "Black Box" written by Shogoro Ito, published from Bungei Spring Autumn in October 2017, has become the best seller in the Amazon category "Penal Code / Procedure Law". It is an interesting one in thinking about Japanese society. The truth is here, "Here is the truth, why the judiciary does not judge this?" Journalists raped by the rape question the world, the law and investigation, the present state of society, thoughts from respected people To prove that fact, there was a "black box" everywhere in the closed room, the acceptance of society, the arrest warrant stopped, everything there was a change, if the judiciary does not judge this, do not change something There is an overwhelming nonfiction that journalists who suffered from rape damage closely respond to the situation surrounding the victim themselves.

Relationship between Mr. Trump and Washington Post

The Washington Post is a local newspaper from Washington, DC, which was launched in 1877. In 1889 John Phillip Sousa was asked to the Washington Post newspaper and composed the March Washington Post (The Washington Post.March.). This march has become a big hit, and it has become a song that anyone has heard internationally. Mr. Donald Trump, who has secured the Republican nomination for the presidential election, has long been showing contempt for the press with words such as "disgusting" or "naughty". And this time, I rejected the press pass of "Washington Post" on my Facebook, and showed my willingness to refuse to interview from the newspaper. The Washington Post said in an article dated 13th that it was because he criticized Mr. Trump for trying to associate President Barack Obama with Gun Shooting Incident in Orlando, Florida. Donald Trump seems to connect President Obama to Orlando shooting (6/13 washingtonpost.com) Indeed the article of "Washington Post" may have been inaccurate. However, Mr. Trump's decision to shut out the news agency from a press conference is obviously a remarkable infringement of "freedom of press". In the past, the trump campaign has canceled the press pass without explanation or warning. Trump, declaring to lock out reporters of "Washington Post" (Wired.jp) The Washington Post has shown negative attitude toward Mr. Trump. On February 22, 2016, he published an exceptional editorial calling for Republican leaders to stop Trump 's appointment.
