Japanese Town Slams The Cove’ Oscar Win

Taijicho, the Japanese whaling town profiled in the documentary The Cove, has criticized the movie’s win at last night’s Academy Awards for best documentary, saying the film is intolerant of cultural differences.  “Documentaries are supposed to accurately report facts. But the film had an agenda,” Taijicho Mayor Kazutaka Sangen said. “I’m extremely disappointed that a film that ignores tradition was given the award.”
