Yakuza "expert" exposed as fake by equally nutty journalist

Postby Barings » 04 May 2012, 13:54

Any foreign Triad experts back in Taiwan?

There's quite a few on Japanese yakuza but this guy, Jake Adelstein, seems to be the biggest self-promoter out in cyberspace. Claimed the yakuza were out to kill him when he published his book a few years ago, but nevertheless remained in Tokyo. :liar:

However, a fellow foreign journalist with a bone to pick :loco: decided to dig deep into the guy's past and found a lot of "Charisma Man" padding, fakery, and plagarism in his work:

It's a nightmare to read however, but worth perusing the links which support most of the claims :popcorn:

Judging from the forumI picked up the link, the subject is a notorious troll who constantly self-googles himself. Cue him in to register on this site and post some vitriolic criticism within a few days or weeks.

Right. That does it. Before they murder you they're going to bury you up to your neck, cover your head with syrup and let ANTS eat your EYEBALLS. Don't say you weren't warned.
