According to the Hochi Yomiuri, Asashoryu appeared on a TV taping of
Japanese psychic Hosoki Kazuko's program on location in Mongolia earlier
this month, supposedly as part of a documentary on Asashoryu that TBS is
filming, apparently without the permission of Takasago Oyakata, who said
that if in fact Asashoryu made this appearance, it was a careless decision.
TBS, on the other hand, say they have an application for the documentary
stamped by Takasago Oyakata, authorizing the filming. Takasago Oyakata says
he first authorized it, then retracted his permission. TBS says they will
not in any case broadcast the program until after after Jan. 31st of 2008
(after Asashoryu's punishment period is over).
Nevertheless, the Hochi Yomiuri reports that the Kyokai will have a meeting
on Nov. 26, possibly to suggest it's intai time.
The Hochi Yomiuri article is here, a full translation of which would
certainly be appreciated.
There's much more to the story, and my report (courtesy of my wife's
translating) may be confused in some particulars.
