Fairewinds’ Chief Engineer Arnie Gundersen has said previously that Tepco was hiding a crack at Unit 4, though it appears it was not just a crack in the side of the building, but the building’s foundation.

Excerpt from an October 21, 2012 Fairewinds podcast:

Gundersen: There’s a crack in the foundation and Tokyo Electric did a really poor job of trying to Photoshop the crack away.

They literally tried to wipe it out, but a lot of people on the internet could see right through it. [...]

That’s how they tried to fix the problem — Photoshop the crack away instead of trying to fix the problem.
