Nov. 18Fukushima Diary summarizes an article in Chunichi about a newscaster who has worked at Fukushima TV for the past 15 years:

  • She was in charge of making local residents believe Fukushima is safe
  • She reported that children ate cherries even without washing them… and had them say ‘yummy’
  • She is a mother of 6 years old daughter
  • She had her daughter evacuate in the morning of 3/14 just before reactor 3 exploded
  • She quit in July after becoming pregnant with a second baby
  • She went to Kanazawa in March and was impressed with being able to eat food without being concerned about radiation
  • Though she was making people believe Fukushima is safe, she started commuting from Kanazawa to Fukushima
  • She felt like she was coming back to the battle field
  • She was feeling guilty for spread lies
  • She says decontamination is a wishful thought with no basis
  • People just want to see a hope in decontamination because they want to stay in Fukushima

    Decontamination is an attempt to preserve the existing government. It is futile indeed, but there is a need among the government officials to convince the growing tide of unrest in the Japanese people that the government is serving the interest of the people instead of the interest of the nuclear industry. After all, the nuclear industry does not have enough votes to guarantee the officials reelection.

      “Decontamination is an attempt to preserve the existing government.”

      Agree. In the UK and USA as well. If the world really knew the extent of the radiation in Japanese production cities, and the fact that the workers are being poisoned, they would realize the billions of dollars in Japanese made items may soon stop coming into American factories. The markets would crash, the dollar would crash and the FED/UK would loose their control. Can’t pay 21,000,000 federal workers with IOUs.

      The pressure on TEPCO comes from UK and USA cartels.

    Now media should answer for the crimes of causing intentional harm to others whom this reporter helped to deceive. Her actions prove she knew the news station was lying, her job was to sell the lie.

    Let us wait a few days to see what she will say,
    and how she explain her behavior!

    There are many People in the Japanese Media who done the same like her.

    I think when the Stuff was free of Contamination
    it would be okay to do so,
    only when they knew that this Stuff was polluted a real Crime was done!

    Making all the money as a propaganda mouthpiece and move away? Lol.

    Unfortunately what she did won’t do too much good. Korean Girls who were at Hiroshima and Nagasaki and moved back to Korea are known to bear radioactive children.

    This is sad, but then I get angry; when will the people that are towing the line(like Reporters, NYPD etc.)realise that they are as guilty for promoting/holding the lies. At some point they are going to have a wake up, after they let thousands die.
    Thanks ENENEWS your efforts are greatly appreciated.
