EXHIBIT B — DON LEMON, CNN:
As noted earlier, CNN's Don Lemon interviewed a Georgia Tech professor shilling for the nuclear energy industry who gave a completely biased take on the seriousness of the stricken nuclear reactors in Japan. Lemon took it all in, uncritically, then, reading from a report issued by the plant's operators that radiation levels at the reactor were still "within legal limits," he opined that the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant was "FINE."
Oh, really? Not only is Lemon not qualified to render such a breezy opinion based on incomplete (and biased) information, but he and CNN failed to solicit a broad range of expert opinion on the seriousness of the nuclear plant disaster in Japan from objective scientists who aren't as clearly biased in favor of the nuclear industry as their Georgia Tech "expert" was. Considering they have personnel on site, including Anderson Cooper and his ambivalent death wish, at the very least they have a responsibility to report on this issue soberly, carefully, skeptically, and without making optimistic leaps of faith based on sketchy and incomplete information.
Following Lemon's foray into DON'T WORRY, BE HAPPY fantasyland, this is the REALITY that is being reported from various news sources:
- A SECOND hydrogen explosion has rocked the stricken plant;
- A U.S. carrier detected radioactivity on several crew members after they returned from helicopter rescue missons in Japan;
- The U.S. Navy "SHIFTED" its naval vessels AWAY from the Japanese coast after detecting "low-level radioactive contamination" 100 miles offshore:
The aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan was about 100 miles (160 kilometers) offshore when it detected the radiation, which U.S. officials said was about the same as one month's normal exposure to natural background radiation.
It was not clear if the radiation had leaked during the Monday explosion. That blast was felt 25 miles (40 kilometers) away, but the plant's operator said radiation levels at the reactor were still within legal limits.
- The New York Times reports that "operators fear that if they cannot establish control, despite increasingly desperate measures to do so, the reactors could experience meltdowns, which would release catastrophic amounts of radiation."
- And: "In what was perhaps the clearest sign of the rising anxiety over the nuclear crisis, both the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Russian authorities issued statements on Sunday trying to allay fears, saying they did not expect harmful levels of radiation to reach their territory."
- But: "Radioactive Releases in Japan Could Last Months, Experts Say."

FINE AND DANDY, eh ... Don?
