An Era Full of Rumors About Me

A news anchor started talking about me. “Tsutomu Morishita invited a typist to tea, but I was refused.” Newspapers and magazines started writing rumors about me. Why is the media making a fuss over an ordinary salaryman?

This is a translated synopsis of a novel written in 1978 called “Ore ni Kansuru Uwasa” (The Rumors About Me) by Yasutaka Tsutsui.

It’s been 40 years since then,, This might not be such a funny situation to laugh at.

I don’t understand the news reporting on every celebrity who tests positive for COVID-19. I don’t understand the societal duty of apologizing for having an affair. I don’t understand the minds of viewers who want to view these things that have nothing to do with us.
