I've been a fan of investigative journalism programs for many years and glad to find them on the web and Youtube nowadays. In addition to 60 minutes (USA), I enjoy 60 minutes (Australia) The Fifth Estate (Canada) and Al Jazeera Investigates (Qatar) and how they also investigate issues that are important for the public to understand.

Japan could really use a 60 minutes style program here that is not afraid to investigate controversial issues and educate society on both sides of the story.

Unesco has a great resource describing investigative journalism. https://en.unesco.org/investigative-journalism

PBS Frontline is also good. BTW, Japan has Houdo Tokushu, 報道特集 that airs on TBS on Saturdays from 17:30. Check it out, pretty good.

60 Minutes has been a reliable propaganda organ for the American Democrat party. Their low point was their coverage of the gay gene doctor who was shortly thereafter found to have made it all up.

60 Minutes has been a reliable propaganda organ for the American Democrat party. Their low point was their coverage of the gay gene doctor who was shortly thereafter found to have made it all up.

Everytime '60 Minutes' made a mistake or a bogey they repudiated it. And as for the 'gay gene', I think that has been found to be factual. Homo-/Hetereo-/Bi- sexuality is inherant in people. It's not a choice or a lifestyle. And homosexuality does existin a few animal species too. Maybe the specific gene that determines sexuality hasn't been 'identified' or maybe it has, but it's not 'all made up'.
