The role of journalists in British society has been altered somewhat in the public perception in recent years due to the decline in stand­ards witnessed in many newspapers, particularly in the popular or tabloid press.

Up to 20 years ago traditional views would hold that journalists would be generally conservative and that they would stay within the bounds of observed good taste.

However, the nature of tabloid journalism has changed that. The introduction of a highly-charged marketing war between major publishers - in particular involving the titles of News International which owns five national newspapers - the Sun, the News of the World, the Times, the Sunday Times and Today — has led to an increase in sensationalism and un­ethical activity.

Major items of news have been fabricated while the practice of paying in­dividuals, including criminals, for exclusive rights to their stories has been widely criticized.

In general the mass media of Japan has become a huge commercial business. For instance, the total circulation of daily newspapers in Japan is about 68 million. In circulation rate, it ranks first in the world. One newspaper alone has a circulation of more than eight million. It is characteristic of the situation that major papers hold a monopoly in the market.

Some 70 million TV sets are in use, amounting to one TV set for every 1,5 persons. The number of books published annually reaches 36.000, which is the fifth place in the world, following Britain. As for magazines, some 6 billion copies are issued every year.

In this situation the mass media has a considerable influence in Japan. The ruling circles have consistently strengthened interference and control of the media so as to use its influence as an instrument for reinforcing their rule. In this situation of politics and press the journalists have ever more responsibilities and tasks to handle.
