Susannah Frame, KING 5 TV: At the beginning, especially WRPS officials [at the Hanford nuclear site] were extremely condescending. They tried bullying me. They tried to tell me that basically I was an idiot, that I didn’t know what I was doing. I’ve never had media professionals deal with me in that way. I’ve been around for a long time. […]

I was really surprised at the way I was treated. They said do you even know how to Google? […]

They really tried to browbeat me into not doing the story at all. They said, ‘We think that you will be publicly humiliated if you go on TV and online and report this because what you are saying is so absurd — You’re saying we ignored a leak?’

    I get the feeling these guys don't meet reporters very often…

    Did they expect her to go home in tears because they where mean to her, instead of doing her job.

    If they were really being forthright, you have to wonder why they wouldn't ask the reporter for an exclusive interview so they could explain to the public just exactly what is going on at Hanford? No, instead, we never get to hear their side of the story and I'm quite sure it's not because they haven't been offered an opportunity to give it.

    • Auntie Nuke

      In the interview, she states that she has posted her string of 30 email requesting interviews. This woman is a stone pro reporter w/20 years of experience and multiple awards for her work. She gives everyone a chance to comment. That they haven't is very telling. There are some of her reports archived here on enenews.com. Just put in Hanford and anything that's a video since late February is by her. The quality of her work is outstanding.

    "WRPS officials [at the Hanford nuclear site] were extremely condescending. They tried bullying me. They tried to tell me that basically I was an idiot…"

    SP: Funny…usually these lockstep nucleocrats are fairly cool and unruffled. They unveil their Teflon smiles and provide the 60-year-old standard news response: "There is no immediate danger."

    After 60 years of these mad nuclear scientists destroying the ecosphere humans everywhere are indeed in immediate danger. The human population explosion on earth may be nearing the end.

    When a few more nuclear reactors explode in China, India, or the USA, only a handful of billionaires and their families in deep bunkers will have a shot at outlasting the hundreds of years of deadly radiation. Or maybe Fukushima Daiichi is already enough on its own.

    In light of the latest disturbing news about the epic levels of radionuclides in the Daiichi groundwater, perhaps Tacomagroove's prediction about a huge plutonium groundwater explosion at the complex is about to come true.

    Got your water yet?

      Morning SP, always a pleasure to read your insightful comments. But Tacomagroove's "predictions"…..well.
