the Media is "protecting" TEPCO! ttp://japanfocus.org/-Makiko-Segawa/3516 the entire article is here, but this is the snippet at the bottom of the article about censorship on the internet. The article explains how doctors are telling people the radiation is gone now, and there is nothing to fear. Simply incredible. People are now selling their food in exclusion zones on the internet / black market. People have reportedly committed suicide, etc. Please link to the article to read it in full. http://japanfocus.org/-Makiko-Segawa/... Many thanks to cometodoyourwill on youtube for sending me the link to that article! Really incredible. Apparently this is what Alex was talking about.
Fukushima provides one third of the electric power for the Tokyo Metropolitan Area, including both nuclear and thermal power plants. "If Fukushima goes down, the entire capital region will panic!" Shimoyamada warned.
Kawauchi Hiroshi, a DPJ member of the House of Representative, stated that "Information about radiation diffusion should be correctly revealed to the nation. However, so far only once was this done."He explained the frustration of local officials. "The information from TEPCO (Tokyo Electronic Power Company) should be precisely conveyed. I talked to the mayor of Iidate village (in the 30km zone), whotold me, 'There is no information and I do not know what to do.'" Uesugi Takashi explained the core of the problem behind misinformation and rumors. Uesugi stated that since March 11th, the government has excluded all internet media and all foreign media from official press conferences on the "Emergency Situation". While foreign media have scrambled to gather informationabout the Fukushima Reactor, they have been denied access to the direct information provided by the government and one consequence of this is that "rumor-rife news has been broadcast overseas."
