Maybe I'm beating a dead horse here, but my opinion of MSM coverage of the nuclear aspect of this disaster is ...disappointed - to the point of being angry about it. I mean, when TMI happened, even if you didn't live in the area - there was good investigative journalism going on - in real time in all forms of media (TV, Radio, Print/Newspaper) - and that was before the Internet(s)!. Now, it's like all they do is repeat the same old crap over and over, with no analysis. It's like all sound-bites and no content!


Am I the only one felling that way?

This is literally TMI x 3 (or maybe even TMI x 5)!
This is a big fricken deal.

It's too bad this event didn't start earlier in the week, that way at least maybe "The Daily Show" would cover it properly! It's pretty f__ing sad, when a self-declared "mock" news program usually provides better context than the "real" media.

PS: It just ocurrs to me that event Chernobyl got better coverage and analysis than this - even before things got really bad.

I agree sensationalism and absolute almost rooting for a disaster is almost pathetic really. However down playing something of this significants is also just that pathetic.

This is exactly my problem. No real information and no real facts.

If they can't get some interpretation on what it might MEAN to people in various areas, AND they won't give you numbers to figure it out ourselves.....does that mean that they are essentially purveyors of disaster pictures?

I want some meat on the bones.

Yet again - the media proves my sig.statement.

I'm beginning to agree with that sentiment more and more.

Especially with CNN and it's gaggle of "experts" like Bill freakin' Nye...

We're being sold a bag of goods. At first I was willing to concede the benefit of the doubt in a fluid situation. Not anymore. These people aren't even trying to find the truth on the matter. They're just filling air time and not asking any real questions.

I agree the MSM coverage of this is horrible It's bad when american idol stories get more air time than this..
However I think alot of it is due to the Japan officials having to give out the reports like they do..They are in a no win situation..
Think about it..if they tell everything and panic how many millions of people on a island that they are all going to get radiation sickness or worse..they are screwed
If they say everything is great and it turns bad, they are blamed for lying
ya kinda have to feel for the prime minister tho..on the job 3 days or so then this happens

It's a different culture, saving face is everything there, back in the old days a official might even have to take his own life after a event like this if it was proven he messed up.

I can't make-up my mind about StratFor. Sometimes it seems like a bunch of ex-Cold-Warriors peddling paranoia for profit.

Stratfor has been very good to me over the years.

Thank god I shelled out the money.

They have sources CNN wish it had. They confirmed the meltdown already.

CNN could be put 3 "interns" on this, working in 8-hour shifts - at near zero cost ("interns" a damn-near slaves). If all they did was parse what we've been parsing, and follow links and some some very basic searches, like we've been doing - they'd actually have something to report on.
