Full disclosure: I am likely being a conspiracy theorist. That said: isn’t it suspicious that the supposed left-wing-commie-pinko-liberal media hasn’t talked about this issue? Maybe they aren’t as liberal as the conservatives like to think. Could this be because so many people are trying to convince us that we need to go more nuclear for our energy needs? Just as the movie “The China Syndrome” and the Three Mile Island accident (which was much less dangerous than Chernobyl or Fukujima) helped to put a chill into our nuclear program, the Japanese disaster, if reported for what it truly is, would certainly make people more wary of more nukes, more suspicious of continuously-watered-down regulations, and more concerned about nuclear wastes piling up at military installations all over the country because it has to go someplace.
