The swine flu scare seems to be over, at least in Japan and at least for now.

On Wednesday, 13 new cases of people infected with the new H1N1 virus were confirmed in eight prefectures, including Tokyo and Osaka, bringing Japan’s total to 406. But the update was treated as minor news by media outlets Thursday, a far cry from the first few weeks of May when the same news would have been splashed across the front page.

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