I noticed this when Anderson first started reporting about this country. He always calls it "Burma" not "Myanmar." I've always thought that he does not want to call the country "Myanmar," which was named by junta.
However, I wondered tonight if it is ok for a individual, a very influential individual, to choose how to call it. Officially, the county's name is "Myanmar" now. And Wikipedia (Japanese) says that it is widely called Myanmar but some publishers who doesn't accept its millitary government still call Burma. However, so far, I have never heard the name Burma since the beginning of the demonstration.
As for the Japanese journalist who was shot at the demonstration, he came back to Japan today. His body is already stiff and his right hand is also stiff with the shape of pressing a shutter.
His boss said that this incident, which Mr. Nagai really wanted to report, would never have been a big issue in Japan if he had not been killed. That's very true. Japanese media do not spare enough time on foreign issue. (That's why I apreciate an access to CNN and why I turn to it!) This time, everybody knows about what's happening in Mayanmar.
I like Anderson's facial expressions before "What were they thinking?" segment. As we can no more see Anderstands, I'll keep posting "kawaii" Anderson pics.
For weeks, AC360 podcast starts without special greeting for podcast subscribers. Yesterday (I mean the one released on Oct.1 ) , he started saying "Hey, I'm Anderson Cooper." again! And how he says on Oct.2 issue is really wild and I love it!
