Knowing about Japan’s Imperial Family is considered very important, which is why the Broadcasting Ethics and Program Improvement Organization is recommending young people watch the two-hour special, “Nippon no Princess Monogatari” (“The Story of Japanese Princesses”; Fuji TV, Tues., 7 p.m.).

The main focus of the program is Princess Kako, the second-eldest daughter of Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko. She is now considered fair game for media coverage since she recently turned 20. When she changed universities in the spring, cameras were on hand to record the process.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
