Tony's book in Japan, the TV report correction


On April 1st, a major television station in Japan aired a report on the book, “The Speeches of Texas Daddy,” to be released all over Japan around April 27th.

Very honored and proud to have a major television station air such a report. The news report did have two errors in it, in which are addressed in this video.

Tony’s notes (me):

The report stated I (Tony) use to be very critical of Japan until I studied Japanese culture further and gained a greater respect for the Japanese culture. This is not true as I do not recall posting any videos bashing Japan. Nor have I done so in my adult life. I have always had a respect for their society and culture.

The report also mentioned I will be in Japan. Currently there are no such plans. However this could have been a mistake meaning the book about Tony will be in Japan.

Not getting a story right or making up news items seems to be an occupational hazard not only for this news station, but most news stations and agencies throughout the USA. The main reason I started posting videos expressing my opinions.

Once again, no ill feelings towards the television station as I am honored they aired the report about the book.

From Japan.
I can't speak English well,but I apologizes to you as a Japanese.
If the mistake is found,I'm sorry.
Let me tell you about this matter.
Asahi TV usually broadcasts erroneous information.
That's a impression control to public opinion.
Asahi TV is unbelievable.
That is other broadcasting stations too.
TBS and NHK etc...
Some Japanese broadcasting stations are unbelievable.
They are such fellows.

I'm sorry in the long sentence.
Instead of them apologizes to did an impolite thing.
A lot of Japanese are not foolish like them.
I wanted tell you.
Did it transmit well?
Thank you for reading this sentence.
See you Texas Dady.
