Here's another Japanese program bordering on jingoistic. It's in Japanese and subtitled in Korean.
There are objectionable moments throughout the program, but the ones that stand out most are the comments about Mirai Nagasu. For example, they praise the efforts of all FOUR Japanese skaters in Vancouver, and say that the future of Japanese skating is bright with both Nagasu and Murakami coming up the ranks. Yeah, you heard that right; the Japanese media paid absolutely ZERO attention to Mirai before the Olympics, but after her 4th place result, she's suddenly a Japanese skater.
As an American I find this at once both offensive and pathetic.
