Japan. the United States. Canada.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow has been doing a fine job explaining what’s happening at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility.  It’s all confusing, for sure, but her coverage has been helpful to make sense of the grave problems there – that seawater can’t keep the spent fuel pools cool enough and that the fuel rods themselves might very well overheat and melt down.  What was striking tonight, tho, in contrast, was to see and hear Canada’s CBC coverage, which focused on the workers who are keeping the plant in operation and the tens or more likely hundreds of thousands others who have been evacuated or remain homeless.  Heartbreaking.

US coverage, at least tonight, was about industry.  Canada’s was about people (including advertising on both sides of the border).
