Well intentioned but deeply flawed idea. Bots & trolls will abuse the system to upvote propaganda. People will downvote good reporting if it doesn't fit their partisan agendas. Good journalists will be flagged not credible by groups w/ a vested interest in undermining their work.

Couldn't have picked a better place to be & thing to be doing during the Royal Wedding if I tried...in the mad neon heart of Tokyo publishing a story about Japanese spooks. Not a Union Jack in sight 😃

Here's the source documents cited in the story: Note, the "DFS briefing" is from the Japanese agency - the first time in history one of its documents has been made public.

After it was published, sources familiar w/ the DFS's operations came forward. One said they believed Japan's use of the internet surveillance system XKEYSCORE, which we revealed, violated the country's constitution. Full story at The Intercept in a few hours.

At 9pm Japan time Sat (8am US ET) NHK will air a new investigation focusing on Japan's most secret govt agency, the "DFS." Sources & a classified doc from the spy agency shine light for the first time on activities inside its hidden HQ in central Tokyo.
