Because we are playing the wait and see game. Until it is a global disaster people don't seem to know what to say.
I agree with NickyRachel. This was a disaster for which there is no solution and which will negatively affect Japan forever, and generations around the world for generations. I really believe that is why there was, and is, such a black-out of news about it. Any natural disaster is all over the news until you're tired of hearing about it, but not this man-made one. Barely any coverage. In my mind "they" believe there's no point in causing panic, even though it is warranted.
Because its blacked-out here in the U.S! Its a lot worse than they tell us! Plus when radiation Hit the West coast, to stop panic the Gov. blacked-out the media!
OH COME NOW!...Here in Australia, the News services carry it in all their broadcasts!
Who isn't talking about it? where are you getting your info from?
How can you cover up something everyone knows about? The reason no-ones talking about it is because there is nothing new to talk about. Or at least nothing new that's bad and the news only reports about bad things. "Meltdown averted" is not news. They got the electricity back online, fixed the pumps and the reactors are being cooled.<br />
That's the situation over, there is no more danger and so no more news.
there was no meltdown...so its no longer a riveting story.
there was a cover up for three mile island... there was a cover up for chernobyl... I wonder if japan will do a cover up?
Just so not to panic everyone.<br />
Everyone is worried especially now with two smoking hot!!
Gahdafi is taking all the "headlines" that's all. No cover up but we'll hear more about it when it does actually melt down.
