  • Reporting faults and errors: Article is dated April 1st but reports more-than-a-week old source; this "Science and Technology Editor" claims that the incident happened due to "seeped through their protective gear" but in reality, two of them did not wear rubber boots;
  • Description: The three workers all checked out from Chiba hospital on March 28th, JST. No sign of burn as doctors assured that the skin will heal on its own. Another paragraph: "At first light today officials were alarmed to see steam pouring from reactors 1, 2, 3, and 4. It was the first time that steam has escaped from the No 1 reactor."  Okay... No.1 had hydro explosion few weeks ago so could he be talking about another plant on another planet?
