On the caption in this picture: ... while clearly saying "No," to obsolete and mistaken US policies. As far as I can remember, this part of the Declaration was not broadcast in the later news programs, such as the NHK's Nine O'Clock News or TV-Asahi's Hodo Station.

 

-- the TV screen, the NHK's 7 O'Clock News, 6th August 2007.
