News Anchor Revolts

This explains why my Future Children of Fukushima article and the Chernobyl Horrors page have been the most viewed pages/articles I’ve ever posted. I’ve not met a nuclear apologist yet who could withstand the avalanche of evidence.

“I am a newscaster, but I couldn’t tell the true story on my news program,” says Jun Hori, a former anchor for NHK, the Japanese state broadcaster.

Hori says the network restricted what he and other journalists could say about Fukushima and moved more slowly than foreign media to report on the disaster and how far radiation was spreading. The attitude in the newsroom was not to question official information

Japan has dropped 31 places since 2011 in a World Press Freedom ranking compiled by the group Reporters Without Borders.

Japanese Doctor: “Tokyo should no longer be inhabited”

” contamination in the east part [of Tokyo] is 1000-4000 Bq/kg and the west part is 300-1000 Bq/kg. [...] 0.5-1.5 Bq/kg before 2011. [...] Tokyo should no longer be inhabited [...] Contamination in Tokyo is progressing, and further worsened by urban radiation concentration”

 

Experts: Fukushima ‘globally enhanced’ cesium-137 levels in air by 2 to 3 orders of magnitude

 

Clearly detectable in tuna at California coast…

Sure enough every single fish without exception was radioactive. Every single one. They were all like clones of each other… all the same [levels of radioactive cesium from Fukushima].

This was a fun little indie comedy that was claustrophobic and stuck in one location. I’m partial to opening up the environment somewhat, and single location films sort of grate on me.

The people are pretty funny though, although all the humor is dialogue driven. So there’s a lot of talking about relationships and interpersonal problems. It also completely botches the reality of the weapons (poor science), but I can’t remember any film about anything that had scientific accuracy.

But it’s a comedy, and so we give more leeway. What’s good about the film is that these people are such self-absorbed, oblivious, useless assholes that watching them face the apocalypse is sort of cathartic in and of itself. None seem worthy of surviving, and the world doesn’t seem to be losing much as a result. I thought the ending scene could have been drawn out and developed a bit more. It seemed rushed and implausible. They could have mined it a bit deeper, and I would have been more gushing in my praise.

In propagandastan. Survival is treason. “Mass evacuation can never be permitted…”

“You know Fred, actually staying in a city to help after an atomic attack is not nearly so dangerous as a lotta people think. The danger of lingering radiation is not really very serious.”

Fukushima radiation is killing children… heart problems, leukemia, thyroid 

“…in reality radiation is still there — and it is killing children. They are dying of heart conditions, asthma, leukemia, thyroid complications. Lots of kids are extremely exhausted after school, others are simply unable to attend PE classes. But the authorities are still hiding the truth from us…”

Former mayor of Futaba describes criminal negligence and the poisoning of the population with radiation in Fukushima prefecture.
