Following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, some within the Japanese
TV and journalism industries used the crisis as an opportunity for self-
critique; others side-stepped questions of self-censorship and advertiser
coercion by focusing on restoring audience engagement through the
development of pioneering interactive (social) television. Outside the
major broadcast conglomerates, journalists began experimenting with
interactivity to try to circumvent the institutions they perceived as working
against public interest and safetv. Interactive technologies make bie
promises to Japanese audiences, but do thev deliver?
