In part two of a six-part series on its coverage of the Fukushima meltdowns, The Mainichi Daily News has the headline Journalists strived to get truth about nuclear fallout to public.
The story by Taku Nishikawa ends, “We still regret not having been able to predict that radioactive contamination would spread to the extent that it has. We keep asking ourselves if there was any way we could’ve sounded a more precise alarm when large volumes of radioactive materials were released on March 14 and March 15, as we continue working toward protecting the public from unnecessary exposure.”
