    Apparently, Fox misidentified a Tokyo night club as a nuclear plant.

    To be fair to Fox, it's rare that I see a media report on anything I'm knowledgeable about that I don't spot a substantive error - regardless of which source is covering.

    :chuckles: As I've been saying for years now, when news becomes 24hours-a-day money-making entertainment then veracity goes out the window.

    lol. I wonder who fed them that map. There certainly is a lot of 'punking' going on.

    They are not even smart enough to read or listen to what the other networks are reporting to give them selves a chance of at least being a good Parot? Geeese One lady on CNN from London kept reporting oh look at that a cruise ship on its side in the village when reporting about Japan. It was a fishing boat 80 feet long 30 feet wide at best.

    I find all the engineers and other quasi experts getting there 30 seconds of fame to have an opinion about the Nuclear plants or other topics amusing as well some times just as far off the mark as your nightclub above.123
