8. Perhaps TEPCO's still trying to figure out how to spin this.

Euronews (stylized as euronews) is a European, multilingual news television channel, headquartered in Lyon-Écully, France. Created in 1993, it claims to be covering world news from a Pan-European perspective. Criticisms are that it acts as a propaganda outlet for the European Commission, its major source of revenue.

As a rolling-news channel, headlines from both Europe as well as the world are broadcast in thirty-minute intervals. Brief magazine segments typically fill in the remaining schedule, focusing on market data, financial news, sports news, art and culture, science, weather, European politics, and press reviews of the major European newspapers. These item slots will occasionally be preempted by breaking news or live television coverage. Some segments are displayed without commentary under the banner "No Comment", which has been the channel's signature program since its launch.

In 1992, following the First Persian Gulf War, during which CNN's position as the preeminent source of 24-hour news programming was cemented, the European Broadcasting Union decided to establish the channel to present information from a European perspective. Euronews was first broadcast on 1 January 1993 from Lyon, with an additional broadcast studio set up in London in 1996. It was founded by a group of ten European public broadcasters:

I googled last night trying to find the latest news on Fukushima & why there was no news on moving the fuel rods, which was supposed to start at the beginning of November. The Euronews story had just gone out and remains the latest news at this point.
