首相官邸による同行取材拒否は許されるか?

 政府による報道機関の取材を拒否する事態が発生した。日本テレビは、自らが報道した内容が直接の原因で、小泉首相の訪朝の際の同行取材を首相官邸から拒否されたという。

 日本テレビの発表によると、5月16日に、小泉首相の訪朝に際して、人道支援の内容として、「25万トンのコメ支援で最終調整」と報道したことにつき、飯島勲首相秘書官から、放送当日、「訪朝を妨害するために報道したのか。取り消さなければ同行を認めない」と日本テレビに電話で抗議があり、さらに、「ニュースの情報源を明かせば同行を許可する」として、情報源の開示を要求し、さらに「代わりに雑誌社を同行させる」と伝えたという(MSN-Mainichi Interactive)。

 取材の自由は、憲法上、明文では認められていないため、憲法上保障されるかどうかが解釈に委ねられている。
最高裁判所は、「報道のための取材の自由も、憲法21条の精神に照らし、十分尊重に値いする」との判断を示しているが(博多駅テレビフィルム提出命令事件、最高裁大法廷昭和44年11月26日決定)、学説では、取材の自由も報道の自由の一環として端的に憲法21条によって保障されるという見解も有力である(芦部信喜・高橋和之補訂『憲法〔第3版〕』岩波書店、167頁)。

 ところで、比較的最近になって、行政機関が一部の報道機関の取材を拒否するという事態が起こるようになっていてる。有名な事件としては、愛媛県が、「日刊愛媛」に対して、事実を捏造し悪意に満ちた報道をしたことを理由として、全面的な取材拒否をした事件がある(その後、「日刊愛媛」の廃刊により終了)。

 また、「取材対象が公的機関であったとしても・・・取材契約が締結されていたり、取材拒否を越えて積極的に取材を妨害したり、取材拒否の態様が刑罰法令に触れるなどの特段の事情のないかぎり、報道機関からの取材の申込みに対して当該機関所属の公務員が取材を拒否すること自体が直ちに違法になることはないと解するのが相当である。」として、市立小学校が地域のコミュニティ紙の取材を拒否した点に違法はないとして、損害賠償請求を否定した裁判例がある(大阪地裁堺支部平成9年11月29日・判例時報1640号148頁)。
 この裁判例については、取材拒否がもたらす影響についての判断が不十分であり、これでは、取材の自由の保障を危うくするおそれがあると思われるところである。

 さて、今回の事件については、飯島勲首相秘書官は日本テレビに対して、取材源の開示を求めるとともに、報道を取り消さなければ同行を認めないとして、同行取材を拒否している。
 おそらく、外交上の秘密を漏らしたことに対する報復措置なのであろう。

 しかしながら、そもそも、実際に行われた報道を取り消さなければ同行取材を認めないという権限が政府側にあること自体に対して重大な疑問がある。
 それは、政府による露骨な報道への介入であり、政府によって、「よい報道」と「悪い報道」を分け、「悪い報道」をする報道機関の取材を拒否することに等しい。それは、政府による言論弾圧であると言わなければならない。
 まさに、前代未聞の出来事と言わなければならない。

 まず、政府において、このような取材拒否を行うことが許されると考えていること自体が驚くべきことであるが、それだけでなく、政府自らが、報道機関の取材源秘匿特権を破って、「取材源を開示しろ、報道を取り消せ」ということ自体が国家権力による言論弾圧に他ならない。

 これは、明らかにわが国における有事体制を先取りするものに他ならない。有事(戦争)状態になれば、政府は報道機関が自由に報道することを禁止して、その報道を制限することは明らかである(有事法制や国民保護法制はまさにこの辺りに関わる法案である)。

 先日のWinny開発者の逮捕といい(昨日の勾留理由開示公判で、開発者は犯罪の成立を全面的に争うことを宣言したという)、今回の政府による同行取材の拒否といい、国家権力の動きが、最近になって急速にきな臭いものになりつつあることを強く感じるのは私だけだろうか。

 自己レスです。

 5月19日、細田官房長官は夕方の記者会見で、日本テレビの同行取材拒否を正式に撤回したと報道されている。
http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/politics/news/20040519i113.htm

 しかしながら、一旦行われた報道への不当な介入や言論弾圧の結果はなくならない。
 また、撤回したのであれば、撤回した理由を明らかにするとともに、飯島勲首相秘書官の責任をきちんととらせなければならないはずである。
 この点を曖昧にしてしまったら、また、同じような事態は何度でも起きると考えられるのである。
