"It Cannot Happen Here!": Read PROPAGANDA


This piece by Reuters labeled an “investigation” is, as a whole, propaganda even if it does have some useful information, like plant rankings.

Why is it propaganda?

It is propaganda because the article that locates the most dangerous plant IN the U.S. (Ohio) ALSO states Fukushima could never happen here because of years of enhanced U.S. regulatory scrutiny

(excerpted) “In the United States — Japan’s early model in nuclear power — Fukushima’s lagging safety record would have prompted more intensive inspections by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. It would have also invited scrutiny from the U.S. Institute of Nuclear Power Operations, an independent nuclear safety organization established by the U.S. power industry after the Three Mile Island accident in 1979, experts say.” (end quote from article)
