Be sure to tune-in LIVE to The Pete Santilli Show every day @6pm PST / 9pm EST In this episode, you’ll hear Pete give the full breakdown of the story, and how the alternative news media has handled coverage. Pete talks to his listeners about how the “True Media” teaches people how to verify & research all mainstream and alternative media news for themselves.
Today, reports were circulating in the blogosphere, as well as major Alternative Media Outlets regarding a Fukushima event that has very serious implication, if true.
Reports initially began circulating by a blogger named “Jeffery Goober Wefferson”, and also reported by BeforeItsNews.com reporter John Rolls
RED ALERT: FUKUSHIMA SPENT FUEL POOLS EXPLODED, ON FIRE NOW, RADIATION LEVELS SPIKING MASSIVELY
What is interesting, is that a major Alternative News Media outlet is quickly reporting the incident a “Hoax”; citing the blogger’s article (Jeffery Wefferson). For clarification, Pete describes an article that was found pertaining to Fukushima which sited “Japan (Reuters) ” as a source. In tonight’s episode, he explains that such an article should have the original source links. Pete encourages readers to never trust anything that they have not researched themselves, especially because of the extreme amount of propaganda that exists on the internet.
FUKUSHIMA, Japan (Reuters)
Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano confirmed on Saturday there has been an explosion and radiation leakage at Tokyo Electric Power Co’s (TEPCO) (9501.T) Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
“We are looking into the cause and the situation and we’ll make that public when we have further information,” Edano said.
“At present, we think 10 km evacuation is appropriate.”
Japan earlier in the day warned of a meltdown at a reactor at the plant, damaged when a massive earthquake and tsunami struck the northeast coast, but said the risk of radiation contamination was small.
Edano also said that Japan has expanded the evacuation area around the Fukushima Daini nuclear plant. (Reporting by Kiyoshi Takenaka; Editing by Joseph Radford)
What does the public make of this news? Rumors are abound, and even trusted Alternative Media news organizations are publishing partial, unverified or inaccurate information.
Is the truth being quashed to minimize panic? The fact is that if reactor 4 fuel rods are exposed, this would generate a “mass extinction event’, possibly resulting in the evacuation of North America, and the possible deaths of 2+ billion people.
What’s interesting is that a Deccan Herald Fukushima article sites “Reuters Japan” as their source, but does not provide a link to the source article.
Are major Alternative Media websites involved in quashing or sensationalizing this type of news, or are they rushing to press with partially verified information?
In tonight’s episode, Pete emphasizes the importance of weighing the facts, researching the news, checking source links and he certainly does a great job sharing the importance of having a “free-mind” when it comes to absorbing news from any source.
