NHK reported Fukushima plants were safe before Tepco confirmed after an earthquake

About 5 minutes later, NHK announced the earthquake did not affect the reactors from 1 to 4.

However, 10 minutes later, Tepco announced they were still checking up the situation of the reactors.

NHK viewers comment there mustn’t have had time for NHK to call Tepco and make a draft about the situation of the plants.

NHK is suspected to report it without confirming. (Source)

Since beginning of new year, M4 class of earthquake is occurring frequently.

We probably should not reply on NHK to judge if it’s safe or not.
