Fukushima health concerns, Japan Times Editorial, Nov. 8, 2011 at 7:00 pm ET:

[…] “Tepco and the central government must do their best to prevent workers’ overexposure to radiation and take necessary measures should workers become overexposed to radiation.”

“It is of great concern that little has been disclosed regarding the conditions of the workers at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant. Tepco and the central government should disseminate information on the actual working conditions of these people” […]

    It is of great concern that the Japanese government has abandoned its duty to protect its citizens and is instead complicit in a coverup that will kill untold millions.

    I didn’t post yet any personal opinions, mostly information and links.
    But i have to say that i am absolutely outraged with Japaneses Government’s behave, they are soulless puppets… A little bit like our French President Sarkozy (i am French) in a way…

    TEPCO mass graves from all of the workers who die and payments for the families to stay quiet? Well there is no way you will survive long close to that plant spewing new radiation daily. I’d say the public has been duped pretty good by being distracted and mislead. We know what happens when people face exposure because it usually ends in death at a certain level of radioactive concentration. To all the people who think I’m being “alarmist” take note that your expectation of normalcy are gravely mistaken.

    It has been of great concern on enenews since last April! If we all can sorta keep up with this stuff, why the hell can’t a main stream news organization do the same?
    Oh, yeah, I forgot. They are ALL owned by very few corporations.
    Liberal media, my old ass!!!

      • God bless our media, indeed. spoon fed scripts from GE/NBC. Good one, arc. Really puts the whole “how can the media not report on Japan etc” question into perspective.

          yea chem

          first i laughed…then i thought about the implications

          you see a lot.. amd i mean alot of repitition on news searches

          this means no journalism.. this means cut and paste delivery system, and its completely redicoulous if you havent read george orwells 1984 or watched the film…. staggering stupidity…. we dont need radiation to shrink our brains, we just need more corporate media!! and thats no joke 🙁

      Many are owned by financial companies which in turn are in bed with politicians, the perfect storm.

    the japan times is the official organ of the government, i wonder what is going on.?

    • Johnny Blade Johnny Blade

      It’s an “organ” all right!-one of many which causes the Japanese people to walk funny every time they drop the soap during a nice,hot shower in Fukunated water!!

        …every time MSM does a “180”-they get the “concerned minority” of the public’s interest to give them a little bit of credibility back which serves to lead their former subscribers turned critics back for another dose of false hopes,misinformation,the “good news”that positive,hopeful people so desperately seek and get free publicity from their critics as it seems to be the case in my opinion. What’s the next headline when their readership numbers go back up to include the newest generation of 21st century Hibakusha?-will they announce the problem solved with “the new TEPCO roadmap”,or that “cold shutdown back ontrack for january”?!! I think they’re just covering their asses now that it’s becoming evident that they “intentionally” turned their back on the true nature of the dangers & deception they were instrumental in and thereby accountable for every injury & death attributed to their complicity in the despicable way this horrible crisis has been handled & the impacts on the people of Japan & the world for that matter!!
