For example, ABC and NPR (and Yahoo) have this AP story on their sites (as a side story):

More obstacles impede crews in Japan nuke crisis
http://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireStory?id=13231064
http://www.npr.org/2011/03/27/134896508/radiation-rises-sharply-inside-japan-nuclear-plant

That AP story’s also up on Fox’s site, although with this more thrilling headline (and as a side
story):

Workers Struggle to Remove Radioactive Water From Japanese Nuclear Complex
http://www.foxnews.com/world/2011/03/27/workers-grapple-radioactive-water-troubled-japan-nuclear-plant/

The Wall Street Journal has this different piece (with a headline much the same as Fox’s,
no doubt due to Murdoch’s ownership of both):

Japan Nuclear Workers Struggle With Radioactive Water
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704396904576225961395484904.html

And here’s the latest from the New York Times–suitably alarming, and yet it too is over-
focused on what happening (only) at the plant (and, again, as a side story):

Higher Levels of Radiation Found at Japan Reactor Plant
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/28/world/asia/28japan.html?hp

But worse than all that peephole coverage is this AP dispatch–now up on CNN, CBS and MSNBC–implying that things really aren’t as bad as they may seem:

Utility says readings of radioactivity spikes were wrong
http://www.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/asiapcf/03/27/japan.nuclear.reactors/index.html?hpt=T2
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/03/27/501364/main20047606.shtml
