- Reporting faults and errors: Silly comparison throughout, titled: Chernobyl Cleanup Survivor's Message for Japan: 'Run Away as Quickly as Possible'
- Description: Another unscientific piece with the golden line "government does not always tell the truth" and with confidence, the journalist just types what the translator of the interviewee said (I felt so worried for the people of Japan and the children especially. I know
the experience that awaits them). Unbalanced and subjective as journalist has no input of her own.
