Just last month, some U.S. media ridiculed the Japanese people wearing masks. Now the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) urged all Americans to wear a mask when they leave home, although their president called the measure voluntary and said he would not wear one himself. Good grief, we’ve told you about this, haven’t we?

Last week, Japanese netizens derided their prime minister’s decision to distribute two cloth masks to each household throughout the country. They dubbed the two masks as “Abenomask.” Although they badly needed masks, the policy was considered as either “too little, too late,” out of touch with the reality, or both.

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