    If you don't find "Shibuyaeggman" on the International Atomic Energy Agency's list of Japanese nuclear power stations, that's because "Eggman" is a dance club for indie and underground bands in the Tokyo district of "Shibuya." Sounds like a fun place to drink, have fun, and not evacuate due to a nuclear meltdown.

    Yes, because since other people have fucked up, it excuses FOXNEWS for fucking up.

    Are those 'conservative' values?

    No, because it's a common fuck-up.

    I've posted screenshots of them from all across the media....Some of them not anywhere near as benign.

    I sat and watch CNN while they interviewed an 'expert' on this. Guy was talking like the end of the world was upon us, most of what he said, when you analyzed it was very 'anti-nuke energy', so I dug around for his background. Turned out - and what CNN didn't bother to inform its viewers of - the guy is an 'alternative energy' guru. Well, that kind of puts his opinion into a completely different context. Context is your friend.

    However, assuming this pic is legit - and as far as I am concerned there is no evidence that it is - unless someone has the actual clip of the segement.... this is hardly a huge, or deliberate, error. Media, in their enthusiasm to get the 'news' out - often don't bother to fact check.

    Which, I wouldn't be too surprised if some of these graphics errors aren't the work of smarmy employees just getting their kicks. Yuk Yuk and all that, then claiming "honest mistake."
