    It's obvious that these people haven't learned their lesson. If I were ATS, I'd keep demanding that Nippon TV release a formal public statement of apology, not only for hidden camera, but also for lying blatantly in releasing their original press release.

    Um, hopefully without igniting the Yuna vs. Orser wars yet again, I'll just quietly point out that ATS is hardly in a position to be criticizing anyone else for issuing inaccurate press releases.

    Corrected, albeit with no thanks to how you chose to point it out.

    Let them be learned hard lesson after the world news reported their improper behaviour.

    Even japanese yahoo netizen picked this as a representative example of ethics violations

    http://dailynews.yahoo.co.jp/fc/dome...asting_ethics/

    News from USSA


    3 January 2011



    Kim YuNa

    All That Sports (AT Sports) Agency

    Seoul Kangnam Ku Samsung Eastern 143-3

    3rd Building, 6th Floor

    Telephone: 02 553 2070 2625

    Fax: 02 553 2069 2624

    Email: admin@atsports.co.kr

    Email: atsports2@hanmail.net



    Ms. Yu-Na:



    I am writing on behalf of the Board of Trustees of the United States Sports Academy, the Academy’s Awards of Sport Committee, the Academy, and the Academy’s associates, USA Today and NBC Sports, to congratulate you on being selected as the 2010 Female Athlete of the Year.



    Kim, you were spectacular in winning your gold medal for figure skating during the Vancouver Winter Olympiad where you scored an unprecedented 200 points in the process.



    Your performance was reflected in the worldwide vote that you received. Never in the history of the Academy’s voting has any one athlete, male or female, dominated the voting as you did. There was never a question from the first day to the end of the balloting that you would dominate the ballot, and you did exactly that.



    With this communication, I would like to start the process on where and when we might be able to present you with the “Order of the Eagle Exemplar with Rosette.” The Academy has had a longstanding relationship with South Korea.



    There are a good number of great sport leaders in Korea, and all have been past recipients of the Academy’s

    Awards program, starting with my good friend Chong-Ha Kim, the President of the Korean Olympic Committee during the Seoul Olympiad in 1988. Again, there are a good number of others that can represent the Academy in Korea, should that be convenient.



    I might mention that at one time we had a dean or chairman at virtually every college and/or university of Korea who were doctoral graduates of the Academy, including the National University of Sport and Physical Education and Olympic Park. Most of them are now retired, but I believe that Dr. Susan Kim is still a senior member of that faculty.



    I understand that you do train outside of the country, including the U.S., and we do have representatives of the Academy throughout the world, as we have many sport education programs worldwide that help us with the medal presentations.



    Again, I do offer my personal congratulations on being selected as the 2010 Female Athlete of the Year. No one has ever deserved that medal more than you.



    Thank you.



    Cordially,





    Dr. Thomas P. Rosandich

    President and CEO

    United States Sports Academy





    Attachment: Press Release on Kim Yu-Na

    Academy’s Awards of Sport Program



    CC: USSA Board of Trustees

    USSA President’s Cabinet

    USSA Board of Visitors

    USSA Art Committee







    http://rockyoon.tistory.com/461

    According to him, the Award Ceremony will be held on Friday, January 7, at 3:15-4:00 p.m. local time, at the USSA's headquarter which is located Daphne, Alabama. I am not sure Yuna can make time for the award ceremony.

    I'd like to see Yuna in georgeous dress once more....let's wait and see.

    Tell that to the Japanese fed when one of their skaters was filmed by a fan without permission and then demanding an apology, while threatening to sue the fan. Hypocrisy as usual.

    Geez, you grumble when they don't apologize, and then you grumble when they do apologize.

    Good job that ATS make sure everyone knows about the inconsistent statements from NipponTV.

    Apologise privately to ATS for not getting approval while publicly release statement that they had approval.

    It is not a big deal I suppose if you don't really care about basic broadcasting ethics, but in the realm of international journalism 101, to caught up in your own lie on multiple international press is a national disgrace and they should be embarrassed.

    So typical. What would you feel if someone announce to everyone around you that he/she did nothing wrong, and then later send you a private apology letter for the wrongdoing without making a corrective statement to others? I doubt this apology thing would ever hit the Japanese news or be known to the Japanese public.

    Since you brought it up , exactly what part of ATS press release you find is incorrect?

    I believe it's been publicized in the Japanese media that NTV made an apology to ATS, as Rumblefish has so kindly pointed out.

    The link you provided leads to another link to the brief quotation of an article. Wouldn’t it be more appropriate for Nippon TV, which is a major network TV in Japan, to issue a PUBLIC corrective statement, when it overtly and incorrectly stated to the public that it had obtained the approval to film the private scene?

    Cognitive problem or plain distorting? None of the news links Rumblefish provided is of Japanese origin.

    You're absolutely right! They should go to hell!
    I just hope some of the doubts you had were cleared by that link.

    If you'd stop foaming at the mouth long enough to read what I actually posted, you would notice that I was referring to some of the press releases that ATS issued in the past, most notably at the time of the breakup with Orser.
