National tax agency is inspecting Chunichi newspaper group and Tokyo newspaper, which is one of the group companies.
Tokyo newspaper is the only media to report nuclear disaster objectively.
The investigation of national tax agency is unusually persistent. They ordered Tokyo Newspaper to prepare a guest room for the tax inspectors, even ask each restaurant to know if the employee actually used it for reporting. Tokyo newspaper is afraid of the privacy of the news source.
The newspaper company is also against the current cabinet to raise the tax rate.
The headlines were
“Noda cabinet is started. What should they do before raising the tax rate ?” (1/14/2012)
“Restructure of the governmental outpost agency must be done before raising the tax rate.” (1/30/2012)
They were insisting that people can’t be convinced if they don’t do the best to reduce the wasteful expense.
This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
