The Chunichi Shimbun is one of the most progressive and leftist of the six major newspapers. It supported the Japan Socialist Party in the Showa period, the Democratic Party of Japan in the Heisei period, and the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan in the Reiwa period. Nagoya, where the headquarters is located, is called the Democratic Kingdom (Minshu-Ōkoku, 民主王国).
The two prewar newspapers (Shin-Aichi and Nagoya Shimbun) were conservative in the Chunichi Shimbun, but the founder, Kissen Kobayashi, ran for the mayor of Nagoya in 1951 at the recommendation of the Japan Socialist Party (first rejected, 1952). It was elected in the year) and changed to a left-wing newspaper supported by the Japan Socialist Party. The Tokyo Shimbun was once a right wing, but when it was acquired by the Chunichi Shimbun in 1964, it changed to a left wing. Probably because of this, the mass media reforms led by the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications under the LDP administration in the Showa era (1955 system) were treated coldly, and it was not possible to become a national newspaper and to have its own TV station in Kanto. No (Tokyo 12 channel (currently TV TOKYO) was acquired by Nihon Keizai Shimbun, and currently independent stations in the Kanto region such as Tokyo Metropolitan Television and TV Kanagawa are affiliated with the Chunichi Shimbun). Chunichi opposed the JNR division and privatization under the Nakasone administration. It was the only major newspaper against the Koizumi reform, and the Asahi Shimbun and others agreed. Chunichi was the only one who opposed the TPP in a major newspaper (Asahi, Mainichi, Nikkei, Yomiuri and Sankei agreed). He is in a position to defend the labor union. Since the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident, we have taken an extremely strong anti-nuclear policy and publish articles related to nuclear power every day. It also has a branch office in Fukushima Prefecture (not officially issued).
As a media company, the Yomiuri Shimbun Group and the Fujisankei Communications Group have a deep relationship with the conservative Liberal Democratic Party, while the Chunichi Group is a liberal newspaper and has a deep relationship with the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan and its predecessor parties (The Democratic Party of Japan and the Japan Socialist Party).
This newspaper is skeptical of the death penalty.
