I needed a laugh today. Thanks, Fox.
One name seems out of place on the graphic -- that of "Shibuyaeggman."
It doesn't show up on the International Atomic Energy Agency's list of Japanese nuclear power stations, and this map of Japanese nuclear
installations from the Department of Energy's International Nuclear Safety Center doesn't have any listing for "Shibuyaeggman," and doesn't show
a nuclear power plant anywhere near the location on the Fox News map. So I did a little research.
Anyone watching the western media should keep this story in mind. There's a LOT of utter BS being spouted around right now, and the level of fact
checking - especially where the nuclear plant issue is concerned is almost nil. Most websites are running headlines right now that haven't been true
for over 24 hours (er: workers "abandoning" the plant - they left for an hour, and returned, yesterday).
Shibuyaeggman. have to check that one out next time I'm down in Tokyo.
