In recent days, there have been unsubstantiated reports that U.S. President Donald Trump has expressed frustration with the Japan-U.S. alliance to those close to him. The story first came out of Bloomberg News and then was repeated widely by Japanese media outlets.

It is not clear if the story is true. White House officials and the U.S. State Department have denied it, as has Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga, although it is not certain how he would know.

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